Manchester United manager, Jose Mourinho, has said he is not interested in the outcome of his warm up game against Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City.

The Portuguese may field two separate line-ups during the game, with one XI playing 60 minutes and a second XI 30 minutes.

United have already beaten Los Angeles Galaxy and Real Salt Lake in their two previous preseason games with the manager changing the entire line-up at half-time.

While talking about the Manchester derby, Mourinho told reporters, “It’s nice for the US and US fans, it’s very good for the event. I think it’s very good for both clubs and there is always a little bit of rivalry, a bit of an extra ingredient but for me it’s a friendly.

“I’m not going to jump to celebrate a goal, or cry if we concede, it’s preparation for me. The European Super Cup is a match, West Ham is a match.

“It’s a competitive training session, a training session that you try to win but it’s not the most important thing.
