Solsher is pleased with the turnaround and victory against Atalanta

Manchester United coach Ole Gunnar Solskjær said that the team achieved a “huge” victory against Atalanta in the Champions League and praised the game of football player Cristiano Ronaldo.

“If you win the games at home and achieve good results away from home, you have a good chance of qualifying for the second phase. We have achieved a huge result against Atalanta,” Solsher said, Sky reported.

United beat Atalanta 3: 2 last night at Old Trafford, in the game of the third round of Group F in the Champions League, although they lost 0: 2 until the 53rd minute.

The winning goal was scored by Cristiano Ronaldo in the 81st minute, and Solsher praised the Portuguese’s game.

“I was really, really satisfied with how he led the attack. As a center forward, we ask him to run, to put more pressure, especially at home. Even he was in our top five when we defended and you could see his sprints. “He did everything that a center forward should do, lead an attack and defend. If someone wants to criticize his work or attitude, he should watch his games, watch him run,” Solsher said.

“Of course, scoring goals is what Ronaldo does best. He still has a good jump and timing like no other,” the English team coach added.

United entered the duel after only one victory in the last five games in all competitions. The team lost after the goals of Mario Pasalic and Merih Demiral, but managed to equalize with the goals of Marcus Rashford and Harry McGuire.

Asked about the mistakes in the goals conceded, and then about the big turnaround, Solsher answered: “It’s football”.

“We played well in the first half, but we weren’t good enough in the end. They had two chances, we switched off and conceded two easy goals. Then in the second half David (De Hea) had two fantastic defenses. The difference in the game it is not that big and that decided the quality and the quality finish “, stated Solsher.

“The second half was much better than the first, in which we also made a lot of chances. But I understand why people who don’t watch every game see the inconsistency, and of course it really looks bad when you lose 0-2. But our game was not for 0: 2 and that was the message at half time, to continue like that and to finish the chances better, “he added.

Manchester United is first on the table of Group F with six points, Atalanta and Villarreal have four points each, and Young Boys have three points.
