Manchester United tactician Ole Gunnar Solskjaer seemed satisfied with the performance of his players when they beat Real Sociedad with four goals without reply. In fact, the Norwegian coach claimed that MU should have scored more goals.
The duel in the first leg of the last 32 of the Europa League was presented on Friday morning WIB (19/02) at Allianz Stadium, Turin. Manchester United, which was seeded from the start, won 4-0.
The Red Devils started the match with a slick performance, immediately stepping on the gas through the action of Bruno Fernandes who scored two goals in that match. Meanwhile, the other two goals were scored by Marcus Rashford and Daniel James.
This landslide victory is clearly important for Manchester United, because that way, even after a 0-3 defeat in the second leg, the Red Devils will still have the right to advance to the last 16.
After the match, manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer admitted that he was very happy with the performance of his players from the first minute.
However, according to him four goals should not be enough, with such a performance, Bruno Fernandes et al should be able to score more goals.
“We scored some good goals and played good football. We deserved to win, but maybe not with four goals. When we get space like tonight, we can be a dangerous team,” Solskjaer told BT Sport quoted by the BBC.
Furthermore, the man from Norway revealed that the quality of Manchester United’s front and back lines in this match was perfect, and could really take advantage of the opportunity to launch a fast counter-attack.
“We defended well, they had some great players up front and we were able to counter attack quickly. They opened up and we got the space we wanted.”
“Every team attacks you, it’s about finding moments to find space. We are in the process, we are learning from some games that we haven’t won yet,” said Solskjaer.
Meanwhile, the second leg duel between the two teams is planned to be held on February 26 at Old Trafford.
