Manchester United Are Out Of UCL After Losing 3-2 To RB Leipzig

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer without a doubt got a wake-up call last night about his team, after their horrible display against Paris Saint Germain (PSG) in the Champions League where they lost by 0-2.

The manager who previously had enjoyed some success since taking over at the Old Trafford saw his managerial ability called into question last night, as he had no answer or what so ever to tactically make a change that could have brought his team some good advantage going into the second leg away in Paris.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer who could be exiting the champions league with his Manchester United team after losing 0-2 to PSG, with a difficult second leg to come, told the press that the result will not define their season, even with Liverpool and Chelsea to come next.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer might not want to speak so much about the capabilities of this present United squad at the Champions League, it is clear to all that his team lack what it takes to really go away to PSG and win, or even compete with the big teams at this stage of the Champions League.

Discussing the game and result, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer had this to say:

On the Defeat, Ole Gunnar said:

“It looked like the game we thought it was going to be. In the first half, there wasn’t really much in it, and then they got the first goal. When they got that one, it was a poor goal to give away. Then they got the momentum. They started to control the game. They had the experience to play it out.

”You can see that we’ve not played games at this level for a while and we’ll have to learn from this experience because it was one of those experiences that can go either way. It’s not going to be a season-defining one for us. It has to be one that we’re going to learn from.“

Ole Gunnar also spoke on injuries:

“We don’t know. Muscular injuries – hamstring and groin, so we’ll have to have a couple of days to assess them.

”They’re big parts of our squad and they have played very well. When they went out, in the second half, we didn’t have so much movement and pace to get in behind them. Then Juan [Mata], I thought he was one who got on the ball and created a bit. So, we need to maybe find a different way to play when Anthony and Jesse are out.“

Pogba’s red card:

“He tries to get his body across and Dani Alves is clever enough to put his foot in there, so he hits him. From the side, I knew that all Paul wanted to do was shield the ball, but he’s unlucky and hits him on the knee.”

Sanchez:

“When he plays he needs to find himself because we know there’s a quality performer there.”

On Mbappe:

“Don’t give him that space to run into. He is lightning quick, but get your body in against him when he runs past you. I was never a top central defender so you need to ask some top defenders how to stop him.”

A POTENTIAL REALITY CHECK?

“Of course it was a reality check. You can see the strength they have when they put those players in [Neymar and Edinson Cavani], but then again, that’s the level we want to get to. We are looking to strengthen the squad and we have to learn with so many youngsters, to make the step up next season

SHOULD KIMPEMBE HAVE SEEN RED?

“Yes, very [lucky not to be sent off]. And the way he throws Rashford down to the ground in the second half and we don’t even get a foul. But there’s no point me sitting talking about those things now, they’re gone. I’m disappointed, of course, that we’re not going to have Paul in the next round because I thought he was our best player. He had three players around him all the time and he was still at the top, so that’s a big blow because he has been fantastic for us.”

On the second leg, Ole Gunnar said:

“We know we need to score two goals and not concede. But we’ve done that before at this club. We’ve turned things around. Of course, PSG are a really good team with quality from the keeper to the striker, but we’ve got to go there and believe. We’ve got to go there and try, we’ve got to go there and make an effort, and learn from today. We’ve got to look at this game and see where it went wrong. Of course, when you concede a goal from a set-piece, you concede a goal on the counter-attack, you should not concede those goals.”

Liverpool and Chelsea:

“We’ve got Chelsea and Liverpool coming up, so there’s no time to be sorry for ourselves. We’ll be ready for Chelsea, don’t worry about that.”

HOW DO YOU STOP MBAPPE?

“Don’t give him that space to run into. He is lightning quick, but get your body in against him when he runs past you. I was never a top central defender so you need to ask some top defenders how to stop him.”

POTENTIAL REALITY CHECK?

“Of course it was a reality check. You can see the strength they have when they put those players in [Neymar and Edinson Cavani], but then again, that’s the level we want to get to. We are looking to strengthen the squad and we have to learn with so many youngsters, to make the step up next season.”
