Man Utd boss Solskjaer delighted with Tuanzebe after victory over Granada

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was delighted with Axel Tuanzebe's performance for their Europa League win against Granada.

Against Granada, he showcased his ability on multiple occasions, running down opponents and heading the ball away from several set-pieces.

“Top, absolutely delighted for him because he's had a difficult spell," said Solskjaer

“Victor and Harry have done really well, Eric when he's played, has played really well so Axel has played fourth fiddle, if you put it that way."

With first-team football hard to come by for the Rochdale-raised defender, the manager took time to applaud his defender's work ethic after our triumph against Granada.

“He's been very patient, worked very hard," Solskjaer emphasised.

“Tonight, I think him and Victor were our outstanding performers. They kept us from any real pressure. They defended whatever came against them and, towards the end, there were a couple of corners there and Axel headed the crosses away. I'm delighted for him."
