The manager discussed reason why he substitutes the Portuguese stars,
out of tuesday’s game with Young Boys after Manchester United fell to a shocking 2-1 defeat.
With Man Utd up a goal and down a man, Solskjaer took off to two Portuguese stars,
replacing them with Nemanja Matic and Jesse Lingard.
It was Lingard that teed up Jordan Pefok for the winner in the game’s final moments
Solskjaer now explain the decision to take off the two stars.
“The game had gone 70-odd minutes,”
“They’ve both been running a lot Saturday and today.
“The astroturf takes its toll. We wanted Nemanja’s experience and Jesse’s legs.”
Lingard’s misplaced back-pass in the 95th minute ultimately led to Man Utd’s demise,
with Pefok pouncing to seal a massive home victory for the Swiss side.
