Ole Gunnar Solskjaer backtracks after furious touchline spat with Chris Wilder

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has quelled any tensions between him and Chris Wilder after the two were engaged in a touchline spat at Brammall Lane.

It came as Manchester United were trying to see out the game against Sheffield United in an entertaining 3-2 result.

The Red Devils emerged victorious after taking a two-goal lead in the second-half.

But the Blades came back with a late goal from David McGoldrick to give the visitors something to worry about.

Ethan Ampadu gave away a foul that saw possession gifted back to United.

However, Wilder was furious with referee Michael Oliver's decision – and Solskjaer did not take too kindly to that.

It ended up with match officials keeping the two away from each other with the Sheffield United boss gesticulating wildly.

All seemed to be forgotten at full-time as the two reconciled and Solskjaer explained further in his post-match interview.

He said: "I don't mind a fair tackle, but there were a couple in front of me.

"One of these games that these boys will learn from. It's a proper game and like football should be.

"I maybe went overboard with my words and have apologised. We'll have a drink after."

The Red Devils once again started poorly after an error from Dean Henderson – standing in for David de Gea.

The keeper, who spent two seasons on loan at Brammall Lane, did not deal with a backpass well and Oliver Burke was allowed to steal in and set up McGoldrick for his first.

Solskjaer's side came back to win once again from behind, with Marcus Rashford scoring a brace while Anthony Martial also got on the goalsheet.

On Henderson, the United boss said: "It was the good bad and the ugly. Maybe in a different chronological order.

"It's a test (for him). He comes back here and probably been looking forward to it. To get that start, it shows his character for the rest of the game."

Solskjaer added: "It could have been more comfortable. We were sloppy 3-1 up and we could have scored more, we created good chances.

"Their corner that led to the second goal wasn't a corner. Really really difficult at the end. They are handful in a very unorthodox way."
