PREMIER - Solskjaer on defeat against Young Boys
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer chose a solid starting eleven for the match against Young Boys, probably with the aim of avoiding a repeat of last season's disaster against Istanbul Basaksehir.
But, like Manchester United, the Norwegian coach was left empty-handed after a second-half performance that left a lot to be desired.
“I can understand why he gives it,” Solskjaer told reporters on Wan-Bissaka’s red card, as seen above. “Aaron takes a touch that goes too far. It’s never a dangerous tackle as it hits him on the front of his foot. Probably a little bit inexperienced to go through there. It makes it difficult after that with 10 men.
“We know we’ve given ourselves a more difficult task than we did last year but everyone thought we were through after two games last year.
“You need 12, maybe 10 points, you need to win your home games and win away from home. We’ve lost an opportunity to win three points but we’ve got two home games next and we’ve gotta focus on those two.”
