Manchester United’s clash with Astana tonight in the Europa League could guarantee their progress from the group stage as winners if they grab all three points in Kazakhstan, with supporters praising Ole Gunnar Solskjaer ahead of the match.
Their penultimate group game comes against the bottom side who have failed to muster a single point during their European campaign, with Solskjaer hinting he will ring the changes for the game with qualification sealed.
As a result, supporters are gushing over the perceived faith in the Red Devils academy – with fans taking a break from criticising the under-fire boss by singing his praises in regards to potentially giving youth a chance and also taking the opportunity to play the likes of 22-year-old Axel Tuanzebe, Jesse Lingard and Luke Shaw as senior figures during the clash.
Here’s how United fans responded on Twitter to the Norwegian’s latest team decision:
Building a new team by youngsters was the best thing i have seen after Sir Alex Ferguson retire so far .
