Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has hit out at Liverpool players following their 1-1 draw against the Merseysiders at Old Trafford on Sunday.
Jurgen Klopp’s men managed to salvage a point in the last five minutes, thanks to the equalizer from Adam Lallana. However, Liverpool was disappointed on not being given a penalty early in the first half.
Marcus Rashford’s goal was allowed to stand after a VAR check, much to the dismay of the Merseysiders. Later, Liverpool have also disallowed a penalty following Victor Lindelof’s tackle on Divock Origi.
“No chance… we’re not playing basketball. He touched him but it’s not a clear and obvious error. I don’t think it’s a foul,” Solskjaer said.
“We are better when he attack quickly, no dilly-dallying on the ball.”
“Playing the ball forward doesn’t have to be a counter-attack but you need to be more direct, take more risks, be braver.”
“It doesn’t matter if you lose the ball up there because you can win it back.”
“Being more direct helped us.”
