Manchester United ended their pre-season on a disappointing note as a David De Gea mistake and a strike from Zlatan Ibrahimovic saw Paris Saint-Germain emerged 2-0 victors in Chicago last night.
United had enjoyed a 100% record in pre-season going in to the game following victories over Club America, San Jose Earthquakes and more recently Barcelona but that run ended in abrupt fashion against the French champions.
De Gea’s indecision over whether to come and collect a through-ball allowed Blaise Matuidi time to get in ahead of the United defence to poke home to opener in the 25th minute.
PSG then doubled their advantage less than 10 minutes last when a swift break-away resulted in Ibrahimovic ghosting in behind Phile Jones to make it 2-0.
A Memphis Depay free-kick was probably the closest United came to finding a way back in to the game and PSG could even have extended their lead further in the second half if it wasn’t for some wasteful finishing.
However, it ended 2-0 and United now fly-back to the UK to finalise their preparations ahead of next weekend’s big Premier League kick off.
