The draw was the first draw for Manchester United under the direction of Interim manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. It was disappointing, because the draw made Manchester United only pick one point, but the Norwegian manager looked at the match as a valuable lesson for his team.
“The way we reply to backwardness is fantastic. We are happy with one point and we can get three points at the end. We just ran out of time and started the game too slowly. This is learning. But now you have the answer – from the question of whether they can return if they are one behind, two goals. So I am very happy with the response. ”
“That’s Man United. We knew we could perform better in the first 60 to 70 minutes but, again, our reaction was brilliant and, to get two goals after 87 minutes, it was fantastic and proof of the character of all players who never gave up, “said the manager after the match.
