Ole Gunnar Solskjaer hails ‘incredible’ Man United star

Manchester United managed to come back to draw 2-2 against Atalanta during Tuesday night’s Champions League group game.

The Red Devils, led by under-pressure manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, fell behind twice at the Gewiss Stadium.

However, following a first-half equaliser by star man Cristiano Ronaldo, it was to be the Portuguese megastar who saved his side once again during the game’s dying moments.

Latching onto a half chance, Ronaldo smashed home the ball from just outside of his opponent’s box.

Speaking to BT Sport after the game, Solskjaer, when asked for his thoughts on the 36-year-old legend’s performance labelled him ‘incredible’.

“It is a tight game, flowed both ways,” Solskjaer said, “Their two goals were very tight and we thought the first was offside, I thought he interfered with David de Gea’s view but Cristiano (Ronaldo) is just incredible if there is anyone you want a chance to fall to and a difficult chance, it is just incredible…

“That is football, no one can question the character of these players, because they don’t ever give up and give in, they just keep going. We had to make changes and they worked.

“The goal was a proper team goal, great quality on the passing, four or five or six passes before that little exchange as well.

“You don’t plan to concede a goal, I thought it was offside, usually he would save that one. The atmosphere was electric, very physical and hard to play against.”
