Manchester United drew the third game of their U.S. tour on Wednesday night as it finished 1-1 between Jose Mourinho's side and AC Milan at the StubHub Center in California.

"It's very competitive and in the end the penalties for me means nothing but I think football fans, especially American football fans, enjoy the penalty shootout and was good fun", the Portuguese manager added.

The exciting contest saw United's Alexis Sanchez score the opening goal of the match. Milan's Franck Kessie missed the decisive penalty, which resulted in a win for Jose Mourinho's team 1-1 (8-9 on penalties).

Bonucci has been tipped to complete a sensational return to Italian champions Juventus but the experienced centre-back skippered a Milan side, boasting Donnarumma, Hakan Calhanoglu, Suso and Patrick Cutrone.

Clyne has been given permission to return home.

But Sanchez took control of the game, opening the scoring after latching on to a through ball from Juan Mata.

Herrera nearly put United ahead in the third minute, but Donnarumma got down low to tip away the shot.

However, their happiness was short-lived as Milan's Suso scored an equaliser soon after.

The teams went in level at the break and while the tempo dropped in the second half, Liverpool continued to look the more threatening following the introduction of Shaqiri.

Calhanoglu looped a ball over to Fabio Borini, but the substitute's shot was tipped onto the post by Joel Pereira with six minutes remaining as the match headed to penalties.
