Fabregas attacks Arsenal teammate over United Champions League win
AS Monaco player Cesc Fabregas has blasted his former Arsenal teammate Julio Baptista for criticizing Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and his tactics that were employed against French Ligue 1 outfit Paris Saint Germain on Wednesday night.
The Red Devils’ boss led his team to France to secure a historic 3-1 win to secure qualification to the Champions League quarter-finals after being defeated at home by 2-0.
Man United team were forced to sit behind in the game to wait on counter-attack situations and were lucky to have Belgium international Romelu Lukau take advantage of the defensive lapses of the team to secure a resounding win.
In his criticism, Julio Baptista criticized the decision of the Red Devils team to sit behind despite being a good side, stressing that it would hurt them should they employ such tactics in the next round.
However, Cesc Fabregas said the United interim manager should not be blamed because he has got to make use of the tactics because of the strength of his team, knowing that a good number of his team are out as a result of injuries.
Meanwhile, Ole Gunnar Solskajer has defended his decision to field play much of a defensive game because it was the only way to stop PSG from gaining control of the game.
