UCL: Solskjaer Explains Why He Took Off Ronaldo, Bruno Fernandes In Man United Defeat To Young Boys

Manchester United manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, has given reasons why he took Portuguese duo Bruno Fernandes and Cristiano Ronaldo out of their game with Young Boys on Tuesday night, September 14.

The Red Devils began their Champions League campaign with a shock 2-1 defeat in Switzerland. With his team one goal up by new signing, Cristiano Ronaldo and down a man, Solskjaer took off Ronaldo and Fernandes in the 72nd minute.

They were replaced with Nemanja Matic and Jesse Lingard.

Lingard however made a wrong back pass that led to the Young Boys winning goal at 95th minutes.

“The game had gone 70-odd minutes. They’ve both been running a lot Saturday and today.

“The astroturf takes its toll. We wanted Nemanja’s experience and Jesse’s legs,” Solskjaer said.
