Champions League: Solskjaer Reacts To Man Utd 2-1 Defeat To Young Boys

Manchester United manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, has reacted to his side 2-1 defeat to Young Boys on Tuesday.

Naija News reports that Cristiano Ronaldo scored a 13th minutes opener to mark his third goal since he returned to Old Trafford.

The Red Devils were not doing bad even as Young Boys’ Moumi Ngameleu netted a 66th minutes goal to bring the game to a draw.

The game, however, turned sour for the Premier League side after Aaron Wan-Bissaka received a straight red card for a high challenge on Young Boys’ Christopher Martins.

As the match approached 90 minutes, Jesse Lingard put a backpass to find David de Gea but the ball was found by Theoson Siebatcheu who wasted no time to tuck past the United goalkeeper.

Reacting to the bad start, Solskjaer warned the Red Devils squad that they must learn from their mistakes if they are to avoid another early exit from European competition.

The Norwegian coach asked his team to remember how they lost concentration last season and suffered a loss against Basaksehir.

Solskjaer said: “A lack of concentration, you make a mistake and you get done. We did that last year, conceding two sloppy counter-attacks against Basaksehir and lost that game in the last seconds today.

“So we know we’ve given ourselves a more difficult task. We did last year when everyone thought we were through after two games.”

“You need 10 or 12 points: win your home games and one away from home. We’ve lost the opportunity to get three points, but we’ve got two home games next and got to focus on those two,” Solskjaer said after the game.
