MANCHESTER United boss Sir Alex Ferguson was full of praise for his team's second-half performance following their 1-0 victory over Shanghai Shenhua.
Summer signing Shinji Kagawa scored his first goal for United in the second period as United won the Chevrolet China Cup at Shanghai Stadium.
The home side, who were without ex-Chelsea duo Nicolas Anelka and Didier Drogba, defended deep as the visitors struggled to break them down in the first half.
"I was very pleased with the way we played very well in the second half," said Ferguson.
"It's been a great workout, they were very well organised. They weren't easy to play against."
Meanwhile, Sao Paulo vice-president Joao Paulo de Jesus Lopes still believes an agreement can be reached with United for Lucas Moura.
He said last night: "I don't rule out the possibility that in the future there are some sort of negotiations."
