Manchester United head coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has commented on Manchester United’s 1-0 win over AC Milan in the Europa League 1/8 final return leg (first leg 1-1).
“Of course, we are happy. We won the clash with a great club and overcame some difficulties,” Solskjaer said to BBC.
“When you play on zero, you give yourself a good opportunity to win. Towards the end Henderson made a great save and I am pleased with the team’s defensive performance. We know that our entire defensive six, including McTominay and Fred, always give it their all,” he elaborated.
He then went on to give particular praise: “We have been missing Paul Pogba. He missed almost two months and any team will lack such a player. He is very important and will seriously strengthen us. He plays a very, very important role in the team.”
