Solskjaer explains angry comment on Lingard


The Norwegian was seen fuming on the touchline, in the Caraboa Cup 2nd leg Semi Finals win against Manchester City. and the anger was directed at Jesse Lingard.

Though, Manchester United failed to progress to the Finals despite the win. the 3 – 1 First leg loss was enough to oust the red.

And Solskjaer explains his reason behind the angry gesture.

“Just heat of the moment, once in a while”.

“When you lose the ball, make sure we try to play more. And in the next moment him and Victor [Lindelof] grew in confidence and started playing”.

“Once in a while you’re going to make mistakes but if you’re going to come here and just defend you’ve got no chance”.

“Yes, we created one or two dangerous moments with the way we tried to play our way out, but that’s the way we want the box to express themselves”.

“We have to do that to release the pressure”.
