Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was happy to see his forwards back among the goals as Manchester United incredibly smashed Southampton on Tuesday.
Since driving the powerful 9-0 destruction of nine-man Southampton at Old Trafford on Tuesday, Manchester United’s forwards have their “mojo” back.
Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial, and Edinson Cavani were among them, delivering the ideal reaction to Solskjaer’s pre-match remarks maligning the lack of the ‘mojo’ of his forwards.
“Yeah, of course, they have,” Solskjaer said with a laugh to BT Sport when asked if they had recovered that “mojo”.
“You get lots of confidence from a performance like this and the result, scoring goals is always good for forwards and the team.”
He added: “We have been waiting for them to show their magic and tonight was a night they could go and enjoy.”
“We haven’t had too many of those where you can sit down in the second half and enjoy football, so they enjoyed it. There were some good performances.”
