Mourinho credits Solskjaer for ‘phenomenal result’ against PSG

Jose Mourinho has praised Ole Gunnar Solskjaer following Manchester United’s historic Champions League win over Paris Saint-Germain on Wednesday.

United became the first team in Champions League history to advance to the next round having lost the first leg at home by two or more goals, a late penalty from Marcus Rashford securing a 3-1 win in Paris which saw the Red Devils progress on the away goals ruling.

Mourinho was full of praise for Solskjaer, who replaced the Portuguese at Old Trafford in December, and Ajax boss Erik ten Hag who oversaw his own shock win with the Dutch side eliminating holders Real Madrid.

“In terms of players, I was immediately thinking about [Dusan] Tadic, because he was a key player in that amazing match,” Mourinho told Russian outlet, RT.

“But I think independent of the performances, Ajax and Manchester United results are phenomenal results, and if the responsibility in the bad days is for the managers, the responsibility of the good days is then also for the managers.

“So for me, [Erik] ten Hag from Ajax and Solskjaer from Manchester United. Incredible results, so credit to them.”
