The Norwegian reflected on training in the week leading up to the match and stressed that it was always a given that Cavani would be playing.

“I’ve been a coach for about three years now and Cavani’s training performance on Tuesday was probably the best I’ve seen from anyone.
All eyes were on Solskjaer following the recent humiliation at home against rival Liverpool
“Ronaldo and Cavani play well together. They have a lot of respect for each other. The quality they provide is unsurpassed ”.
“They played for the club no matter what. It’s about improving as a group. If one of them does not give what he has for Manchester United, he will not be able to play ”.
When asked if he was especially relieved to finally have a win against his name, Solskjaer remained pragmatic.
“You know you’re under pressure from day one when you walk in here,” he said.
This week has been difficult for the players, the fans have not been happy. This is a game, it’s next now, Atalanta. You are where you are and you have the responsibility that you have and you have to enjoy it. ‘
Marcus Rashford put the icing on the cake with a compound finish at the end of the match.
“It would have been an interview and a different atmosphere, but that’s football. When you win, everyone stands up. You have to wait for the next game. ‘
‘We have experience together, Cristiano and Edi. We got more control and we probably got a man from McTominay’s match
