Manchester United coach, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer admits his disappointment with his squad which won a negative result in the 2021/22 Champions League opener, after losing 1-2 to unseeded team, Young Boys.
Knowing his team had a disappointing result, Solskjaer highlighted the disciplined side of the Red Devils players who looked bad in that match, especially in the defense sector after Aaron Wan-Bissaka received a red card in the first half.
In addition to his right-back discipline problem, the Norwegian coach was also disappointed with his team’s loss of concentration at the end of the match, which led to Young Boys scoring the winning goal after taking advantage of Jesse Lingard’s mistake.
“Of course, discipline is a big part of football, not just for games like the Champions League. If it was the knockout stages and we were out of the competition, because we were playing with ten men, everyone would kick ourselves,” said Solskjaer from the Daily Mail.
“We are lucky this is the first game of the group and have a lot of time to bounce back. Man United, have missed the opportunity to get the three points, but we have two home games next and have to focus on both.”
The defeat, in fact, increasingly shows that Solskjaer has not found the best performance at European level, because he has recorded seven defeats from his last 11 matches as Man United coach.
