4000th game with academy player, big achievement, its utd's dna. It had to be Greenwood the academy player to score the equaliser, too bad it ended with a draw, if not would be a great day.
Too bad, sometimes thats football you know.
Dang. almost there.
Man Utd manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, speaking to Sky Sports: "We're disappointed we didn't get three points. We didn't have the ideas to win it towards the end. We kept them on the back foot and if any team was going to win it it was us.
"We came back after the disappointment at half time. You shouldn't concede goals like this at set plays. But it's a foul. There's no point me complaining but his arms are over David's shoulders as he was going to punch it.
"Mason Greenwood is different class in and around the box. You're not surprised when he scores goals. It's fitting that it should be an academy player that scores in the 4,000th match [in a row in which Utd have fielded an academy product] and it makes it hard for me to leave him out.
"We've always had the DNA, with added players from other top clubs, and that will always be the philosophy here.
"We're disappointed today but we have a quarter-final in the Carabao Cup to come on Wednesday and I have a big strong squad to choose from."
