“I played in teams with a lot stronger personalities than that to be honest and that’s the way for us to improve and to take the next level, to always demand more, and more and more.”
In a separate interview with BT Sport, Solskjaer labelled the performances of Rashford and Fernandes as ‘exceptional’.
He said: “They have been exceptional, they have been so good for us and they’re so important for us.
“The first goal, very good run by Rashford and then he takes the ball fantastically and it’s a fantastic finish.
“And Bruno, I know he’s so confident on penalties and even though the goalkeeper almost saved it, it was good enough to give us a good lead.”
But United star Daniel James has warned the dressing room the tie isn’t over yet despite their positive evening abroad.
