RB Leipzig striker Sorloth reveals chat with Man Utd boss Solskjaer

RB Leipzig striker Alexander Sorloth admits he was able to chat with Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at the end of this week's Champions League tie.

United were comfortable 5-0 winners against the Germans, with Sorloth beginning the game on the bench.

He told VG: "We just had a very pleasant chat. He talked about the first time he saw me, it was for Rosenborg's G16 team against Clausenengen. We won 5-0 and he remembered the result. It was very nice.

"It's not so long since that match now and now I'm in the Champions League. So we talked a bit about the road until today."

On the game, the former Crystal Palace striker added: "It was a tough first match naturally enough. At the same time, we just have to forget it and think next. 'S*** happens'. We know we're better than that. It was not a 0-5 match."
