After a highly successful trip across the pond last summer, Sir Alex is relishing his side's return in July.
"We're finding it increasingly more exciting every time we come to the States," said Sir Alex at a packed Tour 2011 press conference in New Jersey. "Major League Soccer is now developing into a very competitive league and producing good teams who are making games much more difficult, as we found last year when he played Kansas City Wizards.
"It's great to see that improvement and, of course, the national team did well at last year's World Cup. There's a definite sense of there being a good future for soccer in America. It's not only that though. It's a fantastic country to bring the players to - the training facilities are fantastic, the hotels are good, everything about the country is perfect for the build-up to a tough season."
