Europa League: Solskjaer Singles Out One Player For Praise

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was full of praise for one of his players despite the disappointing draw with Dutch Eredivisie club AZ Alkmaar in the Europa League.

The Red Devils were unable to break down a resolute AZ Alkmaar as the two teams settled for a goalless affair in their Group L clash in the Europa League.

In his post-match press conference, Solskjaer praised the performance of young defender Brandon Williams who made his debut during the game against the Dutch team.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was delighted with the quality shown by the youngster on his first appearance for the team.

The Manchester United manager made eight changes from the Premier League clash with Arsenal at Old Trafford on Monday night and Brandon Williams was one of the players brought into the starting XI for the AZ Alkmaar game.

Manchester United struggled offensively for the better part of the game and Solskjaer believed that they should have been awarded a late penalty.

According to him, his team should have been given a spot kick for the foul on Marcus Rashford.

Replays showed that the England international was fouled by AZ Alkmaar defender Stijn Wynters in the box towards the end of the game.
