Solskjaer: The boys are full of confidence
As you can see in our interview, Ole is proud of the way his players adapted to the empty stadium in Austria...
PROFESSIONAL AND QUALITY JOB “You can say it was a professional but it was also a very good job. It wasn’t just being professional and efficient though, there were some quality football and quality finishes, some great build-up play and great through passes, runs and movements, I think we got more or less everything we asked from the boys. The whole 90 minutes from the whole team was excellent.” HIGH-QUALITY GOALS “You can look at all of them and say they’re high quality. The first one for Odion who had some great touches and it was very nice to see Dan back on form and confident. With Juan’s goal, what a pass [from Fred] and Juan is composed. Then you have Mason, that’s just what he does, absolute quality. The keeper didn’t give him a lot to aim for so he had to go through both of the posts and I’m very happy for Andy [Pereira] to finish it off. Every goal was high quality and we should have had more.” ANOTHER CLEAN SHEET “In the second half they had a couple of dangerous moments but we had some great blocks. In the first half as well they had one chance but it was a great block by Eric [Baily] so of course it’s not just the attackers that did well, I think the back four, with Sergio [Romero] back there guiding them, all did well.” GOALS FROM EVERYWHERE IN THE TEAM “It’s great of course. We’re human beings and footballers with confidence will play and perform better than footballers without confidence, and we’ve got so many players with confidence because they’re doing well. They deserve to be confident and it’s harder and harder to pick an XI. We made a few changes today and some of the players really grabbed their opportunity and put pressure on the ones who have been playing most of the minutes.” STRANGE ATMOSPHERE “It’s the business end of the season and what was pleasing today was it was different circumstances. It was a weird atmosphere and the boys were so focused and created their own atmosphere in the game and I think the camaraderie and the team spirit was there to see. It’s not to recommend [football behind closed doors] but I have to praise the boys because they did fantastic.”
