How does coach Solskjaer justify MU’s defeat against Basaksehir in the Champions League?
MU defense had an unforgettable game when they conceded two goals in the first half when facing Basaksehir in the Champions League. Although Anthony Martial shortened the score before the break, it was not enough for MU to get 1 point. This is really an unhappy signal when MU will have to be Everton’s guest at the end of this week.
Answer after the game, coach Solskjaer admitted that the players were not doing well and made unacceptable mistakes. “Our performance is simply not convincing enough. They attacked a few situations well and got 2 goals. It is common in the European Cup when you do not defend well.
At first goal, we forgot about the opponent’s plug striker and that was inexcusable. The second goal we lost, we did not do well in recovering the ball. “Give” the opponent two goals like that, we cannot reverse the position in the second half.
MU had a goal from a cross, it was a good goal for Martial. I think 45 minutes of the second half is enough to equalize, but not even though I tried my best. It’s hard to be optimistic about the current situation. Even so, MU still has good players and we have a chance to play against Everton at the weekend.
The press said that Solskjaer is under great pressure and is in danger of being fired, but the Norwegian teacher does not think so. “I declined to comment on this matter. Everything is too early and that opinion is always there. I was recruited by the club and I and my colleagues will do our best.”
On the other hand, Donny Van De Beek also blamed himself for not performing well for this result. The Dutch midfielder spoke. “I’m really disappointed. I think we got off to a good start but gave the opponent a goal. I don’t understand why. Maybe it’s because we lost our temper. We could do better like this. so.
We are a team and we all have to take responsibility. There’s a lot of room to create opportunities, but we didn’t do this well. Basaksehir played well, but the problem was with us. We need to do better, especially against Everton at the weekend.”
