Jose Mourinho’s men were uninspiring in Munich
Manchester United failed to impress as they were beaten 1-0 by Bayern Munich in their final pre-season friendly.
Jose Mourinho’s side were on the back foot for the vast majority of the game and a Javi Martinez header saw them slump to defeat.
The clash of two European giants produced an uneventful first half and both teams headed into the second period on equal footing.
To United’s credit, they made themselves a tough nut to crack at the Allianz, but Bayern ultimately did make the breakthrough on 59 minutes.
Thiago’s corner found Javi Martinez and the Spaniard nodded past David de Gea with a simple headed finish from inside the six-yard box.
