What Manchester United’s Raphael Varane did during Wolves’ triumph at halftime.
On Sunday afternoon, Manchester United defeated Wolves 1-0 in a Premier League match.
After Manchester United’s win against Wolves on Sunday, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer spoke out about Raphael Varane. The Red Devils came into the contest on a high after Cristiano Ronaldo’s sensational return. They also won 1-0 at Molineux thanks to Mason Greenwood’s late goal.
Against Wolves, Manchester United were not at their best.
The Red Devils were under siege for the majority of the game, and they owe it to David De Gea to keep the hosts at bay.
United, on the other hand, did what all excellent teams do: they won when they weren’t playing well.
Greenwood scored late to send the away fans berserk and give his side all three points just days after Ronaldo’s emotional comeback.
While United struggled to get going at Molineux, there were plenty of positives for Solskjaer and his players on the day.
First and foremost, another Greenwood goal.

De Gea, meanwhile, has returned to his best form, producing a fantastic double save while the scores were equal.
Varane was also a standout performer.
Solskjaer gave the former Real Madrid player his first start after he was an unused substitute in the 1-1 draw with Southampton.
And he didn’t put a foot wrong the entire competition, with the France international exuding class.
Varane was a boisterous presence both before the game and during half-time, according to Solskjaer, who said he was ‘good’ on both occasions.
