Man Utd fans blast Solskjaer as ‘in denial’ after Young Boys assessment

Manchester United fans are fuming with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer for his comments following United's loss to Young Boys on Tuesday evening.

The Red Devils lost 2-1 to the Swiss side after they reduced to ten men when Aaron Wan-Bissaka saw red after 35 minutes.

Cristiano Ronaldo had put United ahead, but Young Boys pegged them back into their own half as they spun the clash on its head.

United struggled to get out of their half as the Swiss side piled on the pressure.

And after losing to a stoppage-time winner, Solskjaer was claimed he would have been 'pleased' with a well-earned draw.

"We could have done better ourselves [in the] first half with eleven men, but we always knew that they are high intensity, energetic, and an athletic team," he said.

"I thought we started the game well, but we didn't get the second goal that would have killed the game off in the second half.

"I felt, as Harry just said here, we felt in control without the ball. They didn't create any big chances at all.

"[They created] a couple or a few shots, David had one shot to save, he probably hit the crossbar or over and then the two unfortunate goals.

"So I was very pleased: it could have been a very well earned point."

And United fans weren't too happy with comments.

"Has there ever been a man more in denial. No shots for 65 minutes. Getting overrun by a team that would struggle in the PL, holding on for dear life," one fan questioned.

Another replied: "I love Ole, but he's tactically clueless."

"I don't agree with it. Don't get me wrong drawing away from home in Europe with ten men would have been a lot better result than losing, but we didn't look in control," a third tweeted.
