Jose Mourinho and Manchester United came to terms with reality as they were thumped 4-1 by an adept Borussia Dortmund side in the International Champions Cup.  

It was a rough beginning to Manchester United’s pre-season tour as they came out short against a Borussia Dortmund side that played an attacking brand of football from the outset. Jose Mourinho’s men began the game on the back foot, and played catch-up for the most part. Only a handful of United players stood out, while several came under the cosh, and were scrutinized for a lacklustre performance.

Here’s how the game panned out on social media:

Memphis Depay was deployed as a number nine, and looked off the pace on a number of occasions as he failed to test Roman Weidenfeller in the Dortmund goal. Defender Phil Jones and keeper Sam Johnstone too had a torrid game, and were the targets of some roasting on Twitter:

Dortmund’s Ousmane Dembele showcased on Friday why he was signed by manager Thomas Tuchel, after a blistering performance was capped by a magnificent solo goal. Fans obviously loved the goal, and spoke highly of the Frenchman.

An overall team performance was lauded by the footballing world:
