Jose Mourinho praises Solskjaer in the wake of Champions League win over PSG

He also singled out one Manchester United player for particular praise.

Former Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has praised Ole Gunnar Solskjaer for his role in the club's victory over Paris Saint-German.

In a post-game interview on RT, Mourinho hailed caretaker manager Solskjaer, for his "phenomenal performance" at his old club, adding that "if the responsibility is on the bad days are for the managers, then the responsibilities for the good days should also".

The Portuguese coach also credited the determination of the Manchester United players as the driving force behind the win.

He said: "Manchester United had four shots during 95 minutes, and in four shots scored three goals, and PSG had almost 70 per cent of ball possession, had more than 10 shots, and they scored only one.

"That’s the pragmatic way of looking at football, Manchester United scores three, and they deserve to go through."

Solskjaer has won 14 out of his total 17 matches at United since he joined the club in mid-December. However, to come back from a 2-0 loss at home is his biggest success to date.

The victory came after Manchester Utd were awarded an injury-time penalty that was slotted home by Marcus Rashford.
