Ole Gunnar Solskjaer responds to Jadon Sancho transfer talk

Man United into semi-final

Manchester United faced FC Copenhagen on Monday evening, as they vied for a place in the last-four of the Europa League.

United headed into the tie viewed as clear favourites, however, the Danish side, to their credit, subsequently more than held their own over the 90 minutes against one of the Premier League’s top clubs.

The Red Devils were by no means at their best for large parts of the quarter-final, but they still came close to opening the scoring on a number of occasions, with Mason Greenwood and Marcus Rashford having had goals correctly ruled out.

Anthony Martial, though, proved the start of the show in Germany, with the Frenchman’s efforts having eventually seen him earn a crucial penalty, which Bruno Fernandes stepped up to dispatch in extra-time.

Man United will now face either Wolves or Sevilla in the Europa League’s semi-finals.

Highlights: Manchester United 1- Copenhagen 0

Solskjaer coy on Jadon Sancho situation

In his post-match press conference, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was, inevitably, drawn on recent events concerning Manchester United and Jadon Sancho.

It has been well documented now that Borussia Dortmund are believed to have set a deadline of August 10th for Man United to make a move for Sancho.

And on ‘deadline day’, with no bid having been forthcoming, Dortmund’s sporting director confirmed that Sancho would be staying put for another season.

When drawn on this situation post-Copenhagen, however, Solskjaer gave very little away, simply stating:

“I can’t comment on other team’s players, I can’t do that. You know that. I never do.”
