‘We got lucky’: Solskjær grateful to Ronaldo for Manchester United’s winner
The Guardian says Ole Gunnar Solskjær hailed a “massive moment” for Manchester United after Cristiano Ronaldo’s 95th-minute strike snatched a win against Villarreal and eased the pressure on the manager following a run of three defeats in four matches.
The victory was United’s first in Group F and places them third, a point behind Atalanta, but had seemed unlikely due to a slipshod performance in which Unai Emery’s side took the lead through Paco Alcácer’s second-half goal. Alex Telles equalised soon after and Ronaldo pounced in the dying moments to delight the packed home support and arrest United’s mini-slump.
