Europa League: Solskjaer Reveals Why His Team Didn’t Beat AZ Alkmaar


Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has revealed why his team didn’t beat Dutch opponents AZ Alkmaar in their Europa League clash on Thursday night.

The Red Devils were forced to a goalless draw by AZ Alkmaar in what’s their second game in the Europa League.

After the game, manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer complained to reporters about the injustice on the part of the referees.

According to him, Manchester United should have been awarded a late penalty for a foul on second half substitute Marcus Rashford.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was adamant that Stijn Wynters brought down Rashford in the penalty box and that his team should have been given a spot kick.

Manchester United were poor in the AZ Alkmaar game as they failed to hit a shot on target throughout the duration for which it lasted.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer also complained about a penalty incident in their penultimate game against Arsenal during his post-match press conference.

He felt that Manchester United should have been awarded a penalty when they were still 1-0 up at the start of the second half for a handball against Arsenal left-back Sead Kolasinac.

In the end, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored later to give Arsenal a share of the points.
