What young Benfica keeper said will make United fans smile >

Benfica’s teenaged goalkeeper Mile Sviler’s
post-match comments is surely something
that will get Manchester United fans excited.
Although, the 18-year old’s inadvertent
mistake gave United the lead, just two
weeks after his error also earn the Red
Devils a win in the Champions League.
But that notwithstanding, Benfica boss Rui
Vitoria picked Svilar for Benfica's following
two league games and for the reverse clash
against the Red Devils on Tuesday.
And the young Belgian looked to put any
previous nightmares behind him when he
brilliantly saved Anthony Martial's penalty.
But just as Svilar appeared to be regaining
his confidence, Nemanja Matic's shot from
distance hit the post and ricocheted in off
the keeper's back.
Daley Blind's second half penalty at least
ensured the game wasn't decided by that
one unfortuitous moment.
And when asked what it was like, as a
teenager, to play at Old Trafford, Svilar
responded with an answer that United fans
will love.
"I ain't going to lie," began Svilar. "It was
really magnificent to play at the Theatre of
Dreams at my age."
And despite the own goal and the result,
Svilar remained positively upbeat at full-time
and praised his manager for standing by
"Yeah of course, a lot of confidence from the
manager and I want to thank him for that,"
Svilar told Viasport.
"I came back and a lucky shot, but I will still
keep fighting and playing for the team and
help them."
