Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was left a frustrated man.
His team had the upper hand in the group going into the match against Paris and despite getting lucky with a red card decision going in their favour, OGS’ team managed to lose 3-1 at home to PSG.
Fred was sent off in the second half, with two goals from Neymar essentially packing off United on the night. The group now hangs in the balance with PSG, Leipzig, and United all on 9 points.
United will head to Germany to play Leipzig in the final matchday but Ole was left lamenting his lack of tactical decision making on the night for not taking off Fred in the first half.
“It was a very good game which deserved fans,” he told BT Sport. “With a bit more clinical finishing we should have finished the game. They were there for the taking.
“We had some big chances. The difference when you get to the big games is the clinical moments.
“If Marquinhos had bigger studs on he’d have been offside. It’s marginal. You can’t really put your finger on the deciding factors.”
“Fred shouldn’t put his head towards him,” he said. “I don’t think he touched him. He was a bit lucky to stay on [though].
“Yeah [I considered taking him off]… Fred has played really well. We spoke about staying calm and on your feet. The second yellow card was nowhere near a foul.”
