Manchester United are through to the quarter-final with a 3-3 aggregate (away goals).
It was fantastic. The belief in the boys was what we hope for. It was a great start, we set out a plan to get the first goal but didn’t expect it after two minutes. That made it more open for us. We wanted many goals in the game. I was in the Champions League with Molde and we got a penalty in the last minute against Basel, but my player missed and we went out. So this time … normally Paul takes the penalties, but this time Rashford took it, he’s only 21 and nerveless. Him and Rom were fantastic tonight. Real Madrid and Ajax was our team-talk. We always know it’s possible, and this club, it’s what we do, that’s Man United! I haven’t seen the penalty, the referee had a big call to make. My staff say he made himself bigger and it was a clear penalty.” And is he going to get this job or what? “No no no no. Wait until the summer, we’ll see what happens.” We all know what’s going to happen, though, right?Ole Gunnar Solskjaer
So big congratulations to Manchester United, who join Tottenham Hotspur, Ajax and Porto in the quarter finals.
