Man Utd chiefs assure Mourinho of greater preseason control

Manchester United chiefs have assured Jose Mourinho he will have greater control of their preseason schedule next summer.

The Independent says United’s current preparations have been thrown into chaos following the postponement of their game in China against Manchester City yesterday.

The Portuguese will now be handed greater power over United’s tours next term.

Mourinho was clearly unimpressed with the shambolic nature of the situation in Beijing which will be a big blow to his plans.

The Red Devils were due to face City in the Bird’s Nest stadium but the game was called off yesterday due to an unfit surface.
