Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer believes that United’s new signings are beginning to shine.
New recruits Donny van Beek and Edinson Cavani impressed in the 4-1 win over Istanbul Basaksehir in the Champions League on Tuesday. Both new signings played the full 90 minutes of the game – and Solskjaer was happy with their performance.
“The two are getting used to how we want them to play – Donny can play in different positions and Edinson is a good old fashioned number nine and we haven’t had that for a while and I was happy with how Anthony [Martial] played off the left,” Solskjaer told BT Sport.
“I felt first half we saw the intent straight away, they wanted to play and they enjoyed it. It’s a Champions League night at Old Trafford, you’d expect them to enjoy themselves. We scored some very nice goals, I’m pleased.
“We need one point, but of course we want to be top of the group but we’ll take it one game at a time.”
Bruno Fernandes gave over the penalty to Marcus Rashford, which OGS had no issue with.
“Marcus is a very good penalty taker and Bruno is very confident, if Bruno wants to give it to Marcus then why not?” Solskjaer said. “Anthony Martial took one against Leipzig too – why not share it around?”
