They Made Difference - Ole Gunnar Solskjaer Lauds Man Utd Substitutes

They Made Difference - Ole Gunnar Solskjaer Lauds Man Utd Substitutes

While on worldwide duty, United's record signing Pogba said it would be a "dream" to play for Zinedine Zidane's Real Madrid, while Rashford has been linked with a move to Barcelona in the British media.

Solskjaer was officially appointed as the club's new permanent manager last week after the solid start he made to life as interim boss.

The Norwegian won 14 out of 19 games in all competitions to revive the club's challenge for a top-four place as well as reaching the Champion League quarter-finals.

Manchester United marked Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's appointment as permanent manager with an unconvincing 2-1 victory over Watford on Saturday. We came away with a win, that is great, but I think everyone knows we can perform better.

Back-to-back losses to Arsenal in the league and Wolves in the FA Cup seemed to be on United's minds at times as they played largely risk-free football, but Solskjaer will be pleased enough to emerge from this game with three points. In the first 20 minutes of the game, they dominated the ball and a little more composure on the ball could have given them a deserved lead.

One highlight for Solskjaer was the performance of Luke Shaw, who set up Rashford's goal with a wonderful pass through the Watford defence. However it took the Red Devils just one clinical break to punish their visitors, and as they took the lead they took control of the game for the first time all afternoon.




"You have got loads of players who you can build a team around and those are two that you asked me about". Despite losing to Arsenal 2-0 in their last Premier League match, they are still full of confidence and are creating plenty of chances in the final third.

"The second half was disappointing, again".

"It is hard to explain because I think we had a good performance", he said.

"Naively enough or strangely enough, I've always had this belief and this unusual dream about being the manager here [at Old Trafford]", said Solskjaer said. However, it will be interesting to see how some fans treat him given his comments about Real Madrid being a "dream" club.

The worldwide break would have done a number of United players the world of good.
