The manager has a vision of enjoying more games of such intensity with his team producing high-octane displays as he bids to make his mark at the club.
"I came to the club to have those nights," he stated. "I joined Manchester United because I knew these [nights] would happen more often than not and I still believe that. I still believe my time here will have many more good times than bad times. I’ve got no doubt about that.
"I think I’m going through a difficult initiation period at the moment but I’m looking forward to the highs and I am sure they will come in the future."
When asked if the Olympiacos tie was a marker for how he wants his side to play, the manager enthused about the commitment shown by his players.
"It was only a small glimpse and just a small part of I hope what it’s actually going to look like with my vision, thoughts and ideas for where I want to go with it. Obviously, what I want is that type of mentality and attitude. I thought from the first minute in the game, the commitment from the players was exceptional. Anybody at the game would say: 'They’re on it tonight'. I’d like that to be the case every game and not just when we’re 2-0 down."
