Ander Herrera praises Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer for PSG win

Former Manchester United favourite Ander Herrera has praised Ole Gunnar Solskjaer for the club’s win over PSG at the Parc des Princes.

It is the second time in two years that the Norwegian has got the better of the French giants in their home stadium. Marcus Rashford was again the hero as the Red Devils came away from the French capital with a win.

Talking to beIN Sports (h/t The Metro), Herrera believes a tactical change made by Solskjaer helped turned the game in United’s favour.

United started the game with a back-three, reinforced by Alex Telles and Aaron Wan-Bissaka as wing-backs. The formation worked a treat in the first half as the Red Devils backline stifled the vaunted PSG attack.

“They changed the system and we had some problems in our defence because we didn’t have too many people in our back.”

Bruno Fernandes captaining the team on the night gave us the lead from the spot after Anthony Martial was brought down in the area. The Frenchman, unfortunately, drew PSG level with an own goal in the second half.

With their tails up, PSG looked to win the game. However, by reverting to a back-four, Solskjaer outwitted Thomas Tuchel and came away with the win instead.

“They did good, we didn’t score the chances we had because we changed the system at the beginning of the second half and I think we were playing very well, that was right that change of system.”

An impressive feat

Defeating last season’s finalists should be a massive boost in confidence for United. The Parc des Princes is a tough arena to come to for any team. For United to come and knock down the door twice in two years is a very impressive feat indeed.

Hopefully, this would give our season the momentum needed to scale further heights.
