Pre-season Manchester derby cancelled


The hotly anticipated pre-season meeting between Jose Mourinho's Manchester United and Pep Guardiola's Manchester City has been cancelled.

Mourinho vs Guardiola is set to be a standout rivalry in this season's Premier League, with the two managers in close proximity for the first time since their days in charge of Real Madrid and Barcelona.

The International Champions Cup offered fans a first glimpse at the latest installment of their running battle, but torrential rain in Beijing has rendered the pitch at the Bird's Nest Stadium unplayable.
