The Manchester United manager defended his tactics despite the defeat of his team.
Manchester United lost 2-1 to the Young Boys in their first match in the Champions League, according to News i.
“The last goal was the result of a mistake that happens in football, but it is still unfortunate,” said Ole Gunnar Solsshire after the match. With counter-attacks, we could have put a little more pressure on the opponent. Unfortunately, our 10-man squad affected our performance until the end of the game. I sent Nemanja Matic to the field instead of Bruno to use his experience to keep the ball, and I decided to send Jesse Lingard to the field because he was fresh.
The United boss added: “After 10 men, the opponent tried hard to send in and pushed our defenders back, which led to a lot of space on our pitch and unfortunately we could not act on a smart counter-attack.
As the game drew to a close, Lingard made a one-on-one pass to Young Boys’s Sibatcheo with a wrong back pass to score his side’s winning goal in the 95th minute. Lingard came on in the 72nd minute to replace Ronaldo.
