Solskjaer's post-match interview
The boss gives his thoughts on our first pre-season game and provides an update on Luke Shaw in our interview...
Q: Ole, 2-0 makes it look like a close game, but I think the scoreline maybe flatters them a little bit? OGS: yeah it was a game where we had the ball all the time more or less, we kept possession well, we played against a well organised, disciplined team that didn't really give us too many gaps. We created half chances. We got 45 minutes work for most of them, which was the main objective of today and of course you always like to win games. Q: It was very noticeable that you were really pressing high, winning the ball back high up the field. Was that something in particular you wanted to see? OGS: Yeah and that makes it more of a workout to be fair, that we're going to chase the ball all over the place. Today was about getting more fitness into the boys. Q: Daniel James showed that he is going to be a nightmare for full backs? OGS: Yeah, he is sharp and he started well. It was a good start for him and we'll nurture him and he'll be exciting to watch for many many games I think. Q: Strikers live off goals, as you know, and that was an instinctive finish from Marcus? OGS: Very pleased with the goal he scored. It's instinct. He swivels and finishes. It's not one of those pretty goals, but it's a goal that I've said that Marcus needs to add to his tally, because he scores wonder goals but when he can get five of these a season, hopefully he can get it in the league as well, he'll add to his tally. Q: How wide is James Garner's smile in the dressing room? A great moment for him? OGS: Great for him. We'd just had a corner kick and I said get on the edge of the box and score with your first touch, but I think he had two, but I wasn't happy with that one. A fantastic strike, the boy can play and he's enjoying tonight. Q: Is Luke okay when he came off? OGS: Yeah, he was a bit tight. We've been working hard and he felt some tightness there, so we'll have to assess him and probably rest him for a few days.
