WIGAN, England (AP) Jose Mourinho has taken charge of his first game as Manchester United manager, a 2-0 win over second-tier Wigan in a low-key preseason friendly.

New signings Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Eric Bailly impressed for United, and England left back Luke Shaw made his first appearance in 10 months after a broken leg. Will Keane and Andreas Pereira scored the goals on Saturday.

United fans chanted Mourinho’s name seconds into the match and he was given a huge ovation as he waved toward supporters after the final whistle.

Mourinho arrived on a three-year deal in May after Louis Van Gaal was fired.
