Solskjaer explains reason behind Bruno and Ronaldo substitutions vs Young Boys

Speaking to the media after the Young Boys defeat, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said: "The game had gone 70-odd minutes, they had been running a lot both Saturday.

"And today [on Tuesday], the astro turf takes it toll as well. We wanted Nemanja's experience on the pitch to keep hold of the ball and Jesse's legs.

"Missed opportunity tonight, of course, but then again last year we won our first two games against PSG and Leipzig and everyone thought we were through." 

Manchester United were reduced to 10 men in the first half after Aaron Wan-Bissaka's direct red card. Young Boys score an equaliser after the break and continued to threaten.

Solskjaer opted to take off Cristiano Ronaldo and Bruno Fernandes for Nemanja Matic and Jesse Lingard. The Red Devils went on to lose 2–1 in added time after Lingard's mistake.
