Man Utd boss Solskjaer explains Will Fish promotion

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says Will Fish deserves his first team call.

United face Granada in the second leg of their Europa League quarter-final on Thursday but will be without a number of players, particularly in defence. As such, teenage centre-back Fish has been called up to the seniors and been added to United's 'B list' squad.

Solskjaer says Fish is a player they're expecting big things from.

“He's a very good talent," he told United's official site. "A composed centre-back with physical stature. He's one we believe in.

"Of course, we've lost a few defenders so to have Will on the bench is a good experience for him and he's there if he's needed and he's ready."
