Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer lauded Bruno Fernandes for converting his penalty last night “with one eye”.
Manchester United in their Europa League win against Granada, Fernandes got a goal from the penalty spot in the dying moments to double United’s lead and secure a potentially crucial away goal, after Marcus Rashford opener in Spain.
The penalty was given after Granada defender Yan Brice caught Fernandes in the face, with the Portuguese left nursing an injured eye.
Solskjaer in his reaction said he hadn’t seen the incident at first, with United scoring from their 15th penalty this season in all competitions.
“To be honest, I haven’t seen it, just seen his eye when he came on, he got hit,” Solskjaer said after the match.
“MIck Phelan was sat behind me in the dugout and he said he took one in the face, so it’s a clear penalty.
“I’ve not seen it, I’ve got to say. His eye is red and to score with just one eye open is also a skill!”
