Ole Gunnar Solskjaer reveals what he told Paul Pogba after penalty miss

Share

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer praised his side's character and admitted that the dressing room was "bouncing" after Manchester United came out on top of a thrilling game with Southampton on Saturday. There were several beautifully taken goals, evenly spread across both teams.

When Southampton managed to equalise with a terrific free-kick from James Ward-Prowse into the top left corner, the 25-year-old looked determined to get on the scoresheet once more to ensure United left Old Trafford with all three points.

The standard of refereeing on show was distinctly sub-par with two relatively obvious penalty shouts turned down for the Saints.

Asked if he had told Manchester United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward which players he feels should stay or go, Solskjaer is quoted as saying by Sky Sports: "Yes, I have". Southampton goalkeeper Angus Gunn did well to deny Romelu Lukaku, twice, and Andreas Pereira in the initial minutes.

"So pleased for him and so happy for him", the Norwegian said.

His double against Palace on Wednesday started United on their way to yet another victory as they set a club record for consecutive away wins, before he played an even more crucial role in the comeback victory over Southampton.

Pereira had equalised for United in the 53rd minute as substitute Diogo Dalot combined with Lukaku, forcing the ball through to the young Brazilian who took a touch before curling a magnificent finish into the Southampton goal.

Some of the wounded lost limbs, Sadiya Yusuf, a nurse at Daru Shifa, one of the hospitals treating victims, told AP news agency. An unknown number of al-Shabab militants had remained holed up in a building near a hotel in Mogadishu since Thursday.

Each-way punters will certainly be keeping a close eye on the former Chelsea striker with Man United now playing a much more attractive style of football under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer which will of course lead to more chances for the big forward.

"We'll do a scan tomorrow but we don't know until we've done the scan".

Pereira hailed his team-mates for their latest display, and is now looking ahead to the Paris Saint-Germain clash on Wednesday.

"First half there were two situations for a penalty and I think maybe he can give one and then the game is in a completely different way".

"Mainly in the first half but also in the second half we showed that we were very, very focused on our match plan and we wanted to get something here". The second goal was offside, which isn't easy to stand.

"We need to have him more in front of the goal, but he has done fantastic in his work rate, attitude, he loves scoring goals, he smiles every day, he does extra shooting in training".
