OLE GUNNAR THOUGHTS AFTER THE GAME
Manchester United Boss sat down with the media to answer a few questions after the game.
1] ON THE RUTHLESSNESS OF CRISTIANO RONALDO
“Cristiano is ruthless when it comes to important events. He is methodical. He has energised the team as well as everyone else in the vicinity. It’s ideal for him because you can see what he’s all about: detecting the moment and smelling the danger, but he’s also grown into a true team player. He’s grown into a superb goal scorer. He had a great game, dropping in and connecting the play nicely.”
2]DID YOU THINK OF NOT STARTING CRISTIANO RONALDO
“No. Obviously not. Cristiano Ronaldo is all about this. This was a day to remember for everyone.”
3]SMILES ON PEOPLE’S FACES

4]RESPONSE AFTER NEWCASTLE EQUALISED
“When it comes down to one each, you never know what will happen. But I believed we had made a good compromise. We were playing ball when Luke [Shaw] turned on the afterburners! Cristiano Ronaldo is a master at timing his runs, and he really went for it there. Bruno scored a wonderful goal. Bruno and his quality are well-known in those locations. I’m in a great deal of joy.”
5]THE TEAM STRENGTH-IN-DEPTH
“I’d want to congratulate the club and everyone involved for bringing in players to provide competition. We’ll be bringing competitors, but they’ll be nice individuals, and we’ll have a good and strong team.”
