Austrian attacker Marcel Sabitzer expressed happiness after scoring the first goal for MU against rival Fulham in the quarter-finals of the FA Cup 2022/2023.
In the last match of the FA Cup quarter-finals last night, Man Utd club with their bravery made a comeback to win 3-1 against the away team Fulham.
In the context of still not having the service of key midfielder Casemiro because of the suspension, coach Erik ten Hag arranged Marcel Sabitzer to pair with Scott McTominay in the middle. Although there was no harmony to help Man Utd control the midfield well, the midfielder on loan from Bayern Munich still left his mark with a delicate goal.
From the break to the bottom of Luke Shaw’s border, the ball was stretched and the midfielder took the opportunity to score to make it 2-1. With this goal, Sabitzer officially became the first Austrian player in history to score for Man Utd.
And after the game, the star born in 1994 said: “To score the first goal at Old Trafford in front of these amazing fans, that is the goal that I have been pursuing for a long time. And the important thing. rather it was the goal that made the game 2-1. I’m very happy at the moment.
I can’t reach the ball with my right foot. So I just tried jerking my left heel and it worked. This is a big win for MU. We wanted to go back to Wembley, we did. Going one goal behind was difficult but we came back and won.”
In the context of Casemiro’s absence due to suspension, it is likely that Sabitzer will be used more by coach Ten Hag in the next matches. And this will be a better opportunity for the contract from the Gray Lobster to score with the Red Devils’ BHL.
