Ole Gunnar Solskjar says Manchester United “did not rise” They lost 3-2 at RB Leipzig And crashed out of the Champions League, with only one point needed to qualify for the last 16.
The manager suggested in advance Defeat of Group H in Istanbul Basaksehir Crucial, tee defending was attributed to three Leipzig goals, so United have now dropped to the last 32 in the Europa League.
“We didn’t play enough as a team,” Solskjr said. “It simply came to our notice then. We never went – we didn’t come forward until they scored the second goal. You can’t say we have enough. We are not enough. We are in a difficult group and clearly the big turn is the loss in Istanbul. That’s where we lost the points we needed to get. Today we had to save the crosses in the box and we did not deal with them. ”
Just two minutes later, Aaron van-Bissaka allowed the unidentified Angelino to score from a long diagonal, then lost the right-back Manchester City player on the right, creating Amadou Haidara’s second in 13 minutes. With Justin Clevert 3-0 in 69 minutes, Harry Maguire was unable to clear this time. Bruno Fernandez, Paul Pogba late scoring was not enough.
The errors followed a similarly poor defensive performance at Basaksehir with a 2-1 lead in November, with Demba Ba’s opener emerging from United, advancing unmarked at half-distance from their own corner.
Solskjార్r asked his players to pick themselves up for City’s weekend visit to Dorby. “As a football player you have to be sorry for a few minutes, and then focus on Saturday, it’s a huge game and it’s something we have to look forward to,” he said.
Pogba had an impact on entering the second half as a substitute. His agent, Mino Riola, was unhappy with midfielder United during the match and wished everyone well if he left in January. Solskjార్r said: “You have to ask if Paul is happy or not, I will not speak for him. Paul is focused on doing his part for the team and he is working very hard in training while he is here. [and] Focus on his performances. “
He denied that Riola’s comments had disrupted preparations for the match. “The team is good – they are a team and they are together. As soon as Paul’s agent finds out that it’s a team sport. I do not want to spend energy on it. I do not talk about Paul Agent anymore.”
