Manchester United manages to find a way to win despite the dismissal of long-time manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, as rookie manager Michael Carrcik takes the helm — thought to be destined to fail with just only two training sessions behind as they set off to Spain.

Indeed it is something to celebrate as both the Glazer family and the executive front office are in awe of the team’s 2-0 win over Villarreal — which takes Manchester United to the Champions League knockout stages.
Christiano Ronaldo didn’t disappoint with his sixth goal in five CL games. Surely his efforts did not come to waste as he delivered and lived up to his expectations both on the defensive and offensive end of the game. Shown best when the ball broke to him.
And on the other end of making stops, David de Gea, made two of those to put Man Utd on the offensive edge during the second half save from Trigueros.
Both efforts ensured Michael Carrick’s takeover to show what Man Utd does best, giving the team a qualifying knockout with a game to spare later this month and a top position in Group F.
