Manchester United completed the unlikeliest of comebacks last night. Their manager was full of praise for the players, particularly, Fred.
Solskjaer was full of praise for Fred who got his first real chance to shine for the club since making his expensive big money move last year to Old Trafford.
“Fred – that was probably his breakthrough for us. You can see why we’ve signed him. He’s got the mentality of a Brazilian international – he is a Brazilian international. He gets on the ball, no fear, no doubt whatsoever. We played a system today that he used to play at Shakhtar.”
Solskjaer has also praised Lukaku who has now scored a brace for the third match in a row.
“Six goals in three games – not bad! Ever since I came, he’s worked his absolute socks off to get fitter and to get into the team. I love strikers who want to score goals. In training, he practices every day.”
“He’s had his criticism but we’ve played him now in a position that suits him more – more direct, facing the goal. I’m delighted for him because he’s a great lad.”
