Brown says US experience ideal for Man Utd preseason

Manchester United defender Wes Brown says doing their preseason in the US is ideal.

Brown has arrived in Philadelphia from Toronto with the rest of the 22-man squad following the victory against Celtic on Friday.

Goals from Dimitar Berbatov, Danny Welbeck and Tom Cleverly got United off to a winning start in their five-match tour.

Next up are Philadelphia Union on Wednesday and Brown said: "It is hard work, but coming to America is brilliant.

"It is not as hectic as some places we travel to. Things are a little but more relaxed because not a lot of people recognise us out here so we are able to go for a wander.

"I have been very impressed by the United States team and they look like they're getting stronger and stronger.

"Soccer is getting bigger all the time in the States and so many kids are playing the game now that it can only continue to become more popular."
