Ole Gunnar Solskjaer hails ‘best in the world’ David De Gea after Villarreal win


Ole Gunnar Solskjaer lauded world-class David De Gea and matchwinner Cristiano Ronaldo after Manchester United secured a thrilling last-gasp Champions League comeback win against Villarreal. Having kicked off Group F with a shock late defeat at Young Boys, the Red Devils were facing the prospect of a third straight home defeat in all competitions after Paco Alcacer deservedly put the visitors ahead. De Gea had prevented the opener coming sooner with some outstanding saves to deny Villarreal, against whom he missed the crucial penalty against in the Europa League final loss in Gdansk back in May.
