Rui Patricio's stop against the Frenchman cost United two points but their manager says he and Marcus Rashford will continue as designated takers
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has attempted to quell a potential storm around Manchester United’s missed spot-kick in the 1-1 draw at Wolves on Monday night, stating that Paul Pogba and Marcus Rashford are both designated penalty takers. “Of course, we get a penalty where normally we can get another two points and score that one but sometimes the keeper makes a good save,” Solskjaer told Sky Sports. “The two of them [Rashford and Pogba] are designated penalty shooters and it’s up to them there and then who feels like ‘this is mine’. “Sometimes players just feel that they’re confident to score. Paul’s scored so many for us and today Patricio made a good save. “You can see the slides before on the PowerPoint [that they are the two penalty takers].” United left Molineux with one point rather than three, arguably a fair result after the home side grew into a game initially dominated by the visitors.
