SPORTChampions League: Solskjaer singles out one player after 1-0 defeat to Barcelona

Manchester United manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, has singled out Scott McTominay for praise, following their 1-0 defeat to Barcelona in the Champions League quarter-final on Wednesday night.

McTominay held his own against Barca’s midfielders, even though United hardly got the ball.

The first leg at Old Trafford, was eventually settled by Luke Shaw’s own goal in the first half. But Solskjaer spoke glowingly about the youngster.

“McTominay? Fantastic. Every time he plays for us he’s improving. He was good on the ball, he’s a great athlete and he can run all day long. He was composed. He brought the ball down a few times and he settled us down.

“We played against a good team. When you play against Barcelona you have to defend well. You might be tired when you get chances.

“There are positives to take and we’ll tighten up a few things. We’ll go there looking to score,” Solskjaer told BT Sport.
