Guardiola-Mourinho clash off: Manchester derby cancelled

Monday's International Champions Cup clash between Manchester City and Manchester United in Beijing has been called off due to adverse weather.

Pitch unplayable after heavy rain

Both teams confirmed that the decision to cancel the pre-season Manchester derby was made by "tournament organisers and participating clubs".

Recent torrential rain in the Chinese capital has left the surface at the Bird's Nest Stadium unplayable.

No opening Pep-Mou match-up

The fixture would have been the first meeting of coaches Pep Guardiola and José Mourinho since the former LaLiga rivals took charge of City and United, respectively.
