Solskjaer's reason for substituting Ronaldo and Fernandes

Meanwhile, Legit.ng had earlier reported that Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has explained why he decided to substitute both Bruno Fernandes and Cristiano Ronaldo during his side’s shock 2-1 defeat to minions Young Boys in the Champions League.
