Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has hailed Manchester United forward Cristiano Ronaldo after he scored twice in the 2-2 draw against Atalanta on Tuesday night.

Solskjaer told BT Sport: “But Cristiano Ronaldo is just incredible if there is anyone you want a chance to fall to and a difficult chance, it is just incredible. That is football, no one can question the character of these players. They don’t ever give up and give in.

“They just keep going. We had to make changes and they worked. The [second] goal was a proper team goal, great quality on the passing, four or five or six passes before that little exchange as well.”

Despite the draw in Bergamo, we still sit top of our Champions League group as we switch attention to Saturday’s derby clash against Manchester City in the Premier League.
