despite the fact that the quarterfinals was at the terminus of FC Copenhagen, as were Stale Solbakken furious proud of what his players had done on the track. Yes, he was actually a little impressed that FC Copenhagen in the whole of the regular playing time was able to play straight up with the mighty team.
- Players can be proud. We showed mental strength, courage and had closed many of the gaps, we knew Manchester United would create, because they are so talented.
It was absolutely equal in the first 90 minutes. It is earned, United eventually win, because Karl-Johan Johnsson delivered many great saves. But we also had our moments, believe Stale Solbakken, who had no difficulty placing the performance in the hierarchy of the many great performances, the FCK has delivered historically.
- the Performance against Manchester United is one of the best matches we have played ever. One should have in mind that many of our current players have never been in the vicinity of the to play on such a level before, he points out.
