Rio Ferdinand comes in defense of OGS after Young Boys defeat

Rio Ferdinand has defended Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s tactics.

The Red Devils suffered a disappointing start to the Champions League campaign with a 2-1 loss at the hands of Young Boys.

A misplaced pass by Jesse Lingard in the dying minutes of the game was converted into a goal by substitute striker Theoson Siebatcheu.

They already lost Aaron Wan-Bissaka to a red card in the first half of the game.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was ridiculed for his mid-game tactics by many pundits and fans.

He told BT Sport: “In the 72nd minute, they’re talking about needing a goal. Ole’s not thinking like that.

“As a manager, I understand what he is probably thinking at that time, 1-1, away in Europe, always difficult no matter where you go, in Europe it’s always difficult to go away, on an artificial pitch, we’re down to 10 men, we’ll take a point.

“And that’s what he was thinking. He wasn’t thinking about bringing players on or keeping players on to score goals. It was about seeing the game out.

“And listen, if he sees that game out, no-one is talking about substitutions.’
