Spectacular goal highlights Liverpool’s win over Manchester United

Andreas Pereira of Manchester United passes the ball during an International Champions Cup match between Manchester United and Liverpool at Michigan Stadium in Ann Arbor Michigan USA

"So I tried it and it was a very handsome goal".

But just three days later the United manager has criticised his player for not immediately returning to MI for the friendly fixture against Liverpool.

Shaqiri was introduced as a second-half substitute as the Reds completed their International Champions Cup schedule in Ann Arbor.

Daniel Sturridge kept up his good form in pre-season as his effort from outside the box found the bottom corner, before Sheyi Ojo converted Liverpool's third with 15 minutes remaining. I think today it was a game where it was quite easy to come in for pretty much all of them because we played over 90 minutes of really good football on a very hard pitch for both teams.

Shaqiri set up the goal by Sturridge that put Liverpool ahead 2-1 in the 65th minute, but the highlight was his left-footed overhead kick that made it 4-1.

Alexis was one of the few senior players on show for United, with a number of their star names still absent as they return from post-World Cup holidays. We start the game with nearly half of the players [who] aren't going to belong to our squad.

"I would like to have two more players", the United manager said. For him it was very good moment in his career, having already had a real experience at Bayern, at Stoke and at Inter. "Those were important moments in his career and now we have him and he can now play together with a few really nice football players".

Even by his standards, this was a particularly bleak assessment from the Portuguese, who claimed he is not confident the club will make any more signings in this transfer window, repeating that he wanted two more players, but would be fortunate to get one.

"It was wonderful to play with this great team, you can see this team has wonderful players, I feel good and I'm very happy".

"It's a free world and I have no problem with Jose", said the German. I can't see in the moment the need, but there are 12 days to go and a lot of things can happen.

Why selling Martial would be a mistake for the club
Do you think it is time for United to sell Martial? Those are not the most supportive words the Man Utd manager could have used in this situation.
