UCL: Why I changed Man United formation against Young Boys -Solskjaer

Manchester United’s Norwegian coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer reacts during the UEFA Champions League football match group H, between Istanbul Basaksehir FK and Manchester United, on November 4, 2020, at the Basaksehir Fatih Terim stadium in Istanbul.

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer outlined his disappointment at his side’s defeat in the opening fixture of this year’s UEFA Champions League campaign but insisted there is plenty of time to bounce back after the 2-1 loss to Young Boys.

Cristiano Ronaldo had put United ahead at the Wankdorf Stadium in Bern, Switzerland, but the home side responded with two goals in the second half – the winner coming with almost the last kick of the game – after right-back Aaron Wan-Bissaka had been sent off.

THE SENDING OFF HAD AN IMPACT
“It looked like a well-earned point and a good point in a difficult game. When you get the first goal you think you’ve got a great chance, it’s enough to win the game but unfortunately that sending off will always have an impact.”

AARON MEANT NO HARM
“Aaron gets a touch that’s too far, and he gets the ball but he follows through. It’s hard to argue against the referee but then again he didn’t go through his ankle, he hit him on the top of his foot. It was never a malicious tackle.”
