Man Utd 0-0 San Jose Earthquakes: Antonio Valencia Injured! (Details)

Manchester United lost defender Antonio Valencia Injury as they were held to a boring 0-0 Draw in their second game of the US Tour.

Just seven minutes into the match, Valencia went off with a calf injury as United Boss Jose Mourinho looked frustrated with his full-back options.

The extent of Valencia's injury is yet to be known but Mourinho will hope his team captain recovers in time for the Premier League opener against Leicester City on August 10.

A total of 65,109 turned up to watch United play against Real Madrid last year but this year around 32,549 came to watch the match in the 68-500 capacity stadium.

There were boos from the fans after the final whistle as United never looked likely to score in a game with very little chances.

United were close to scoring inside five minutes when Alexis Sanchez free-kick was met by Eric Bailey, who's header was against the underside of the bar.

Sanchez, despite only joining up with  the United Squad at their Los Angeles training base 48 hours earlier, started the match and looked sharp on the ball.

The Chile star again surged forward in the 17th but was brought down Florian Jungwirth, who was duly cautioned for the foul.

Jungwirth showed a softer side to his character moments later when he took off his shirt and used it to scoop up a dead bird from the pitch, dispatching the creature to the sidelines.

Second-half substitute Timothy Fosu-mensah cleared off the line an effort from Earthquakes forward Vako just before the 60th minute mark.

Also, Lee-Grant who replaced Joel Pereira, produced a fine save to deny Tommy Thompson.

Coach Jose Mourinho spoke after the match and said:

“We are not a team, we are a group of players from different teams," He told MUTV.

“Some are from our from our first team, some are Under-23, some are from loans and going on loans, some are the Under-18s.

“We don’t have a team to play much better than we did but it’s one more training session.

United will now prepare to begin their international Champions Cup campaign.

The Red Devils face AC Milan on Thursday and then Liverpool over the weekend.
