According to Manchester United’s manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer loved every minute of his team’s play in today’s 1-1 draw with Liverpool.
And for Red Devils manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer his team’s performance was amazing.
“I thought one, the boys were fantastic, aggressive, pressing on the front foot,” he told the club’s official website.
“Two, the fans also made it an energetic game, with loads of passion in the crowd.”
He added: “Three, the referee did really well. He let it become a proper football game with tackles.”
“He wasn’t one of those tippy-tappy, stop-the-game referees.”
“It’s not very often we praise the refs but I think he [Martin Atkinson] did well,” he said.
“It was three at the back and we wanted to get on the front foot and press with Aaron [Wan-Bissaka] and Ash [Young].”
Solskjaer explained: “With the front three, Dan [James] and Marcus [Rashford] and Andreas [Pereira], we had loads of energy and we trust the players at the back to deal with anyone in the league.”
“Even though Liverpool have a very good front three, I thought this was the game if we’re going to create chances, we need more bodies up top.”
“More directness, more runs in behind and the goal was fantastic in that respect,” the Norwegian concluded.
