Man Utd boss Solskjaer hails 'fantastic' 2-goal Fernandes

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was delighted with two-goal Bruno Fernandes for victory over Istanbul Basaksehir.

United were comfortable 4-1 winners in last night's Champions League tie.

Solskjaer said, "Midfielder? He plays up front!

"He's had a fantastic impact, and you just see how it breeds confidence and it gives other players confidence around him.

"We know, at any moment, he can create a chance for anyone, so it's for the rest of them to make movements, runs in behind, clever movements, because he'll find you."
