Manchester boss Ole Gunnar come out to explain how Edison Cavani is helping Mason Greenwood at Old Trafford more especially in regards to England’s aerial ability.
Greenwood netted a header to ensure the Red Devils snatched all three points in an emphatic style after they trailed 0-1 by halftime. Welbeck had condemned his old team to put the visitors ahead in the first half, but it is Manchester United who had the final laugh after goals from Rasdhford and Greenwood ensured a fightback comeback.
Greenwood later revealed how he has been working on his heading behind the scene with Ole Gunnar admitting of the young England international claims, and named Edison Cavani as a major benefit to Greenwood’s workout.
Ole Gunnar said:
“He’s learned from Edi,” said Solskjaer, speaking to BT Sport. “Of course when Edinson is here now — he’s not going to play football forever — the traits of that movement is picked up a little bit. Mason needs to add those goals to his tally, because we know how wonderful a talent he is.
“He played really well tonight and when he can add those goals, we know he’ll be really good.
“Sometimes as a centre-forward it doesn’t work your way and you’ve got to be patient in the box. You know, 5-4-1 can be hard to break down but we got there in the end.”
Asked on how he prompted second-half improvement after his team trailed 0-1 by halftime, the Norweigian did not give many wordy details. He said:
“It depends how you compose yourself,”
“Nothing tactical from what we wanted in the first half. More runs in behind, more movement, better movement.
“Sometimes after international breaks, it takes time and then maybe the fireworks have to be lit at half-time. Very good second half, the first goal [was] good play by Bruno, great finish by Marcus. And the second goal overall was a very good goal.”
