Manachester United manager OGS has become a spin doctor.
His analysis of the derby was painful. It was almost as if he forgot his team had two attempts on target.
‘Two good teams. We beat them a few times last season but those were different games and we counter-attacked. Today was the most we’ve been in the game as in possession-wise and control.’
‘David has made a fantastic save from Mahrez, Harry made two great blocks from Sterling and De Bruyne,’ Solskjaer continued.
His assessment of United’s attacking threat was equally painful. ‘From corner-kicks, Harry had a header, Scott could have tapped one in at the back post and Victor had a couple of headers, Marcus had a couple of decent moments. We could have won it but it wasn’t to be.’
OGS had also not been any different before the Leipzig match.
Solskjaer had said ‘you can’t sit back and hope for a 0-0 draw. That’s not in our genes, it’s not in the team’s genes, it’s not in the club’s genes.’
