Saha: We Had To Dig In

Louis Saha praised Manchester United's mental strength after the Reds came back from behind to beat Benfica 3-1 in the Champions League.

The French striker's mental strength was called into the question when missed a penalty against Celtic but he feels the team showed impressive resolve.

Saha scored United's third goal of a memorable evening but admitted that at first they tried to avoid conceding a goal.

'Today we worked hard and I think this brilliant goal surprised us,' Saha told Sky Sports News.

'We showed great mental strength and had to dig in, and we've done that.

'In some ways, we tried to avoid the first goal, but it happened for them and we reacted very well.'

'I think we needed a bit more movement and it wasn't going very well for me up front.

'After half-time we showed a bit more composure, so we scored two good goals.

He admitted that the changing from 4-5-1 to 4-4-2 was much more comfortable for him, having Rooney as a strike partner.

'It helped me a lot because Rooney's movement is always a help for mine and I do enjoy to play alongside someone.

'It was very important to get a good back four, a good shape and that's what we've done.'

11 goals to his name, he's performing quietly but efficiently. Shame he missed the pen against Celtic. Still, it'll be good to have to experienced, lethal Scandinavian finishers on the bench in January.
