It was a friendly…but the gulf between Manchester United and LA Galaxy was there for all to see. The Red Devils budding talent, Marcus Rashford looked the leanest and fittest. He played like he had a point to prove. I predict he has a better season in the Premier League than 70 million pound boy, Romelu Lukaku.
On the flip side, LA Galaxy have cemented their star on the MLS walk of fame, but this particular team is a shadow of the glorious past. The Galaxy need to be on their toes as LAFC, the noisy neighbours 2.0 are making some serious noise down the 110 freeway!
No matter how Arsene Wenger’s time ends at Arsenal, there is no doubt he will go down as the greatest manager the club has ever seen. Despite not winning the Premier League title for 14 years, the recent FA Cup success has eased the blow when it comes to lack of English championships.
Meeting Mr.Wenger in Los Angeles was an absolute treat. He’s a classy individual who is very charismatic and friendly with the media. When I had the chance to ask him a question, I made it count!
As the new season approaches, I’m joined by Oliver Wilson to hand out grades for last season and also look at how they’ve improved their squads in this insane transfer market that has gone totally balls up nuts! Who is Grade A material and who is failing miserably?
