AC MILAN 1-1 UNITED (8-9 Pen): MAN UNITED NAIJA FM MATCH REPORT.

As part of the pre-season preparations, Mourinho's Manchester United faced ex-midfield 'Bakassi boy' Guttuso's AC Milan in the International champions cup competition.


The match started out with both teams playing like it was a world cup final. Within 10 minutes, both sides had already missed good chances with Manchester United's new goalkeeper signing, Lee Grant making a great save.
In the 12th minute, 'Awoof' signing Alexis 'Balogun' Sanchez picked a delightful flick from Mata and before eyes opened and closed, the ball was dancing 'One-corner' in the net.

REDS AT RUSSIA 2018: FIVE(5) THINGS WE LEARNT

Before we finally shift our focus to the return of club football, before the tension of another fast and furious season kicks in, here are five things #ManUtdNaijaFM learnt from United's representatives in the Russia 2018 World Cup.

1. DE GEA'S MEMORY CARD FULL
In an unfortunate turn of events, David 'Osinachi' De Gea ruined his chances of being named Goalkeeper of the Year with his performances for Spain at the 2018 FIFA World Cup.

Manchester United have confirmed his exit and the deal is believed to be in the neighborhood of €16 million. 
In a very emotional message, the Dutch international said "First of all I want to say how proud I am to be a part of the Manchester United family. To play for the biggest club in the world with such a history meant a lot to me. I had 4 great years with 4 trophies!!!


Blind was signed by 'Oga Philosophy', Louis Van Gaal from Ajax in the 2014/2015 season and made 141 appearances, scoring 6 goals. During this period, he won win the FA community shield, the FA cup, EFL cup and the Europa league with Manchester United.
