Marc Skinner, the manager of Manchester United, honored the late Sir Bobby Charlton by winning 5-0 at Everton.
Before the start of Sunday’s Women’s Super League match, both teams paid respect to the England and Red Devils hero, who unfortunately passed away at the age of 86.
In perfect retaliation to their Champions League defeat against Paris Saint-Germain earlier in the week, an emphatic victory for United was made possible by braces from Rachel Williams and former Toffee star Nikita Parris.
“Everton are a good team, and I know the scoreline is big, but they made it difficult for us,” Skinner stated following the game.
“I think we were courageous, and every player who entered the game and stood by our side was amazing.
“That win was dedicated to Sir Bobby Charlton, Lady Norma and all the family members.
“He changed football in my opinion, especially at my club, so that was for him and for his family.”
Skinner heaped praise on his team’s stellar performance, which was kickstarted by a 14th-minute opener from on-loan forward Melvine Malard.
The United boss added: “I thought we were excellent.
“We’ve had a tough week going out of Europe, we only had a day to prepare for this game and we have had some sickness in the camp with several players missing out.
