Fa cup: Solksjaer singles out there Man Utd players for criticism
Manchester United interim manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, has criticised his side’s attacking play, after Anthony Martial and Jesse Lingard struggled in the FA Cup defeat to Wolve on Saturday.
The Red Devils have now suffered back-to-back defeats under Solskjaer for the first time.
And the Norwegian admits United did not have “enough quality” in their attacking third and was unhappy with the link-up play between his three forward players.
“We started too slowly and played into their hands.
Our possession wasn’t bright enough and quick enough, so it’s disappointing.
“I didn’t think we had enough quality in the last third, enough combination play.
“We had decent dominance with the ball in the first half but that doesn’t help if you give the ball away and they can counter.
“This was a big step backwards, mainly because of the quality of the possession and the passing,” Solskjaer told BBC Sport.
