Daniel James stepped up and took the winning penalty to send United through to the last sixteen in a game which Solskjaer will certainly be relieved to have survived against tricky lower league opposition.
"It's about building relationships".
"It's not just signing players for the sake of it, you have to sign the right ones". We need time, and the attitude of the boys has been great.
"If you're half a second earlier in your movement it's so much easier".
"You can see against Astana and Rochdale they want to impress and do well, and maybe they rush their finishing at times". "That's also down to some outstanding keepers out there".
