Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is delighted with his team’s performance as they landed in the last 16 in the Europa League.
United won 5-0 over Club Brugge at Old Trafford – so they’re out of danger.
“The football we played at times pleased me the most,” the Norwegian told BT Sport. “We started the game with great intent. We were playing with good rhythm and intent in our game and we got some great goals as well.”
“He plays up front, he can play with his back to goal and the goal was a good example of what you want of him. He can hold up the ball and he is what we have been lacking a little bit.”
“If we hadn’t had Odion tonight then Mason Greenwood would have had to play and we have a game on Sunday and that would put us in a tired position. We knew what we got when we signed him.”
“We are not conceding goals which is so important but we played today the way we want to play,” Solskjaer said about the clubs recent upturn in performances and results.
“The players are smiling, they are playing with confidence and that is what we want. The new lads have brought that in.”
