Jose Mourinho has indicated that Antonio Valencia will replace Michael Carrick as Manchester United captain this season.

Martial failed to score for the second game running on United's five-match tour of the US.

Both sides had to contend with hot conditions as temperatures reached 40C, and Mourinho told MUTV: "They were a team with intensity and quality so it was a good training session for us".

"Valencia, Smalling, [Eric] Bailly and [Luke] Shaw, they are probably the ones to start the season", Mourinho added.

"I hope he understands why he was very good".

"I would like to be in Los Angeles now and I am in San Jose, you can not do whatever you want in life", said the Portuguese coach.

The 29-year-old was absent when United travelled stateside for pre-season as reports emerged later that he had been denied visa as he has a suspended prison sentence hanging over him. I did some pre-season with some players but to have 10 players away is very odd.

About 12 Man United players are not at their base camp in Arizona while Alexis Sanchez is expected to join them having being granted U.S. visa late.

And it was up to recruit and third-choice goalkeeper Lee Grant to keep United on level terms before half-time.

"I would like to be in Los Angeles now and I am in San Jose, you can not do whatever you want in life", said Mourinho, who is also linked with a move for Leicester and England centre-half Harry Maguire.

"We're a group of players from different teams".

"You can not do whatever you want in life".

Missing many of their senior players due to World Cup participation, United hit the post through Juan Mata in the first half before Henry Martin gave Club America the lead with a fine header (60). You can not do whatever you want in life.

The Chilean forward is experiencing his first pre-season since 2013 after the South American nation did not progress to the just concluded 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russian Federation, but must now increase his training regimes to be in shape ahead of Manchester United's Premier League opener against Leicester City at the King Power Stadium on Friday August 10.
