Solskjaer Reacts To Raphael Varane Unveiling Before Leeds Match

Raphael Varane appears to be the lucky charm for Manchester United when he was unveiled just before they thrashed Leeds United 5-1.

Varane emerged from the tunnel around 10 minutes before kick-off clutching a United shirt and posed for pictures on the pitch before he was congratulated by United great Rio Ferdinand.

United had intended to confirm the arrival of Varane on Wednesday but unforeseen circumstances delayed the protracted announcement by another three days.

However, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has reacted after Varane's unveiling on Saturday, according to The Manchester Evening News.

“I haven't spoken to him after the game,” Solskjaer said. “But, of course, it was a nice moment for him and it was a nice moment for the fans, them together, they look forward to seeing them, he looks forward to seeing his teammates.

“I'm looking forward to working with him. Top professional, I've followed his career throughout and you just see the way he conducts himself, the way he lives his life.
