Gonzalo Castro scores screamer against Manchester United

Published Add your comment

Jose Mourinho might be reevaluating his decision to become Manchester United manager right now after just his second game in charge.

His new team were brutally taken apart by Borussia Dortmund as United's tour of China got off to the worst possible start.

Of course, it's hard to tell too much from pre-season but Mourinho will be alarmed by United's dreadful defending during the 4-1 loss to the Bundesliga side.

However, he will probably agree that there was little that could have been done about Dortmund's fourth and final goal of the game.

Gonzalo Castro had already found the scoresheet once when he unleashed a stunning strike from outside the area to put the final nail in United's coffin.

Marcos Rojo, who was already at fault for Dortmund's third goal, didn't apply much pressure on the ball, but there was no way he could have been expecting such a good hit from the German midfielder which found the top corner and left Sergio Romero with no chance.

Ousmane Dembele and Pierre-Emerick Aubemeyang were the other two goal scorers for BVB while Henrikh Mkhitaryan found the back of the net for the first time in United colours against his former club.

Rojo wasn't the only United player who looked out of nick as Phil Jones and Jesse Lingard were also heavily criticised for their performances in the game.

Their German counterparts are much further ahead in their pre-season compared to the Red Devils so there is no need to push the panic button just yet, but Mourinho certainly has plenty of issues to solve before the campaign kicks off next month.
