Ole Gunnar Solskjaer responds to the decision to play the first leg of Manchester United's Europa League last-16 tie against LASK behind closed doors due to coronavirus concerns.

Almost 700 supporters who bought tickets through the club will be entitled to the fixed sum in recognition of how late the decision was made following a directive from the Austrian government to impose restrictions on large gatherings of people, leading to the match being played with no supporters in attendance.

The £350 payments will be paid to all fans who purchased match tickets through the club, irrespective of whether they travelled to Austria or not.
