Peter Schmeichel has hailed four Manchester United players after the 2-1 win over Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League.
The Red Devils celebrated a 2-1 win over the Ligue 1 side on Tuesday as Bruno Fernandes and Marcus Rashford scored for United, while Anthony Martial scored an own goal.
‘This was a magnificent win and I think it was something we absolutely needed,” Schmeichel told the Tunnel Insider.
“I think we are still in this transition period and we will see some results that we don’t like and some of them that are going to blow us away.
“This was one of them that has blown us away. I thought it was a fantastic performance and right from the back.
“The goalkeeper played exceptionally. Wan-Bissaka and Tuanzebe came in for a difficult game against some of the best strikers in the world and they were just fantastic.
“Up front, as well, we have got players who can, on their own, create chances and actually put them away. I think Marcus proved that right at the end.”
He added: “You would hope this win will give the players confidence. I don’t think these lads are going to get carried away.
“It is a very, very young squad of footballers with a very experienced manager who will tell them that tonight was good, but it is something that we have got to replicate in four days against Chelsea and when we play Leipzig in a week’s time.
“We can’t play one great game and think we are there. We are still a work in progress and I think there is still some way to go before we are competitive on all fronts, but tonight was a fantastic performance and a giant step in the right direction.”
