Ole Gunnar Solskjaer reveals what he said at half-time to Manchester United players vs Atalanta

Manchester United defeated Atalanta 3-2 after conceding two goals in the first half. With eight minutes remaining, Cristiano Ronaldo scored a header to cap United's comeback.

Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer revealed what he said to the players at halftime to BT Sport after the game.

"Make sure we get the next goal because we will win the game," Solskjaer urged. "As long as we didn't concede, I was confident we'd win," he said.

The Norwegian tactician was referring to the way United were still creating chances in the first half. Both Fred and Marcus Rashford had chances in the first half, with the latter hitting the crossbar.

While Solskjaer was right that the Red Devils were creating opportunities, a strong defensive effort in the second half seemed less expected. In the first half, Atalanta seemed to score with ease, and it was difficult to imagine United keeping a clean sheet in the second 45 minutes.

United managed to pull it off. The team attacked without allowing extra room at the back, and scored the three goals needed. United were able to get away with it this time. Despite the frustration and anger felt at halftime, Solskjaer and the players deserve credit for the result. They just earned it.
