Mourinho would not have spent his money to watch US tour.



Jose Mourinho admits he would not have paid to watch his Manchester United side on their pre-season tour of the United States as they've been under-performing without key players.

The Red Devils played out draws in 90 minutes against Mexican side Club America, MLS club San Jose Earthquakes, and AC Milan in their International Champions Cup opener.

And, they were thrashed 4-1 by fierce rivals Liverpool at 'The Big House' stadium in Ann Arbor, Michigan on Saturday night.

"The atmosphere is good but if I was them, I wouldn't come," Mourinho said as skysports.com reported. "I wouldn't spend my money to see these teams. I was watching on television Chelsea against Inter and the people in Nice decided the beach was better. They didn't go to the game, the stadium was empty.

"I think the passion many Americans have for soccer deserves more. They deserve the best teams and invest to bring the best clubs to the US. But we, and some other clubs, were not able to give to the people the real quality football that can attract even more passion in this country."
