It’s a preseason friendly in another continent but that hasn’t stopped the internet feasting on the result between Manchester United and Borussia Dortmund this afternoon.
The two sides played in the International Champions Cup in Shanghai and the Germans hockeyed Jose Mourinho’s men 4-1.
Henrikh Mkhitaryan opened his account with a second-half goal, but United were already 3-0 down at that stage and Dortmund added another before the final whistle.
Cue predictable gloating from the usual suspects.

MOURINHO NEEDS TO GO, HE HAD LONG ENOUGH NOW AND IT CLEARLY NOT WORKING. WE NEED FRESH BLOOD #MUFC— Beijing Red 4 Lyf (@Beijingcasuals) July 22, 2016
Some tried to be the voice of reason and point out the madness of judging a team on this evidence.
