Manchester United manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has said he had to calm his players down at half-time vs Burnley after two major VAR decisions went against them. Ole recently revealed that his players were very pissed with the referee’s decisions and needed to be calmed before the 2nd half.
According to him, emotions were running really high in the dressing room and he had to intervene because his boys needed control to win at such a difficult ground.
He added that he has always said Pogba is an important player for the club, so he is glad that everyone is currently seeing him in his best form in a while.
His words, “You’ve got to calm them down at half-time because emotions are running high because they disagree with the things that happen out there,”
“So we have to take back control and we played really well in the second half and we held out at the end.”
“I’ve not watched any of the decisions so I can’t really say. Might’ve been a foul by Luke apparently so that’s probably the right decision, definitely not a foul for Harry for his goal. If you can’t jump and head it in like this, I don’t believe that’s anywhere near a foul. Delighted with the response after a bit of a tough first half-hour.”
“I’ve always said Paul is a big player for us, he’s a good character in the dressing room, he’s someone the lads look to, he’s a world champion,”
“We’re seeing the best of Paul at the moment – he’s been injured and he’s had Covid so it’s natural to need to get back to fitness after that.”
On Liverpool, “Of course we know we’re going to the champions. They’ve had an unbelievable three seasons so we’re ready for it,”
“But we’re ready and we’re excited, we’re hungry for it and it’s a test of character and quality again. We’re in a good position going into it.”
