Rafael da Silva has urged Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to ‘keep fighting’ after the Brazilian returned to Old Trafford in Manchester United’s win over Istanbul Basaksehir on Tuesday evening.
United sealed a comfortable victory over their Turkish opponents in the Champions League as two goals from Bruno Fernandes, plus a penalty from Marcus Rashford and a late strike from Daniel James, sealed a 4-1 victory. For Rafael, it was his first return to Old Trafford since leaving United in 2015 and the Brazilian embraced Solskjaer after the final whistle.
The former United defender, who made 170 appearances during his time at Old Trafford, also had a special message for Solskjaer after the match. The 30-year-old posted an image of his post-match hug with Solskjaer along with the caption:
‘Just hope the best for you and Manchester United keep fighting my friend like you are doing,’ ‘All the best Manchester United, thank you for the warm welcome before and after the game. Love you all.’
