Ole Gunnar Solskjaer asked his foster children to be more fierce. Manchester United’s victory over Rochdale is considered not to reflect the real game.
Solskjaer’s outrage is worth mentioning. Because, in the match at Old Trafford on Thursday (09/26/2019) at dawn, United worked hard to get rid of the League One representative. Even Masson Greenwood needed 68 minutes to excel first.
Unfortunately, the superiority of the host cannot be maintained. Rochdale could equalize Luke Matheson on 76 minutes to force a penalty shootout. Fortunately for the high-fights, Mata Mata, Andreas Pereira, Fred, Mason Greenwood, and Daniel James were able to carry out their duties properly and take United to the fourth round.
What happened to United was also felt when against AC Milan during the International Champions Cup. Winning first, United failed to maintain excellence and could be likened. And they were lucky to finally be able to win the shootout.
“In this club, you don’t just sit and hope it’s enough. If you are satisfied with the good, that’s not what we want. I want the players to be even more fierce,” Solskjaer said.
“We handled it very well. I am very pleased with the confidence. You know we are better on penalties than in the right match.”
Apart from the harvested results, Solskjaer praised Greenwood’s performance. The 17-year player has shown positive results for United. “He has two great legs. It must be a nightmare for the defender with him one on one in the box. For me fantastic,” he said.
“You can see he has quality. He will get a part of the game. He is young and we must let him grow,” added the Norwegian coach.
