Ronaldo and Fernandes were replaced as Young Boys pressed for a winner against 10 men

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer insisted that 曼联 have tolook after克里斯蒂亚诺·罗纳尔多 following his substitution in a calamitous stoppage-time defeatYoung Boys.

United made a poor start to their Champions League campaign in Bern, surrending a 1-0 lead through Ronaldo’s opening goal after Aaron Wan-Bissaka was sent off during the first half.

Jordan Siebatcheu’s last gasp winner came after Solskjaer had replaced Ronaldo and 布鲁诺·费尔南德斯 in the 72nd-minute. Jesse LingardRonaldo’s replacementplayed the Young Boys striker in with a backpass.

Solskjaer’s game management was questioned after the Europa League defeat to Villarreal in May is under scrutiny again, as United prepare to bounce back against the Liga side at Old Trafford in a fortnight’s time.

When asked to explain his thinking behind the substitutions, Solskjaer said: “The game had gone 70-odd minutes, they had been running a lot both Saturday and today, the astro turf takes it toll as well.

We wanted Nemanja [马蒂奇]’s experience to keep hold of the ball and Jesse’s legs.

On Ronaldo, the United manager added: “You can never be surprised by the man. He scored another goal, he should have had a penalty and sending off the other way. He pounced on that mistake.

He’s exceptional but we have to look after him and it felt like the right moment to take him off.
