Carrick: That win is for Ole


“That one meant a lot. It was a tough, tough game, they’re a good team. They really test you and make you work, they’re really good with the ball and push you to the limit defensively. We had to be good at times, we had to dig in at times tonight and I thought, as the game grew, we got better. We had a little spell after half-time that we struggled to get hold of the ball, but I thought the substitutes had a massive impact. A clean sheet too, David [De Gea]’s had to make a save or two for us and keep us in the game when he has to. It’s a terrific night for the players, a terrific night for the club, to go through in the Champions League is amazing. That one’s for Ole that.”


“Let’s be honest, I don’t think we could have hoped to have come out here and played really pretty football from the word go. When you have suffered results-wise and not being in a great run of form, individually and as a team, it’s not easy to just come out and let things click. In some ways, tonight was the best way to win, we had to show some character, we had to dig in and fight. It went our way at times, it didn’t some other times, and, on occasions, it could have drifted away from us. After half-time, we got back together again, and the subs made a massive impact towards the end. The game had a bit of everything and that’s all I could have hoped for, the boys gave everything.”
