We did not deserve extra as a result of we did not carry out as much as the requirements to take factors within the Premier League. So we have now to have a look at it, study from it, which, after all, we have had time now over the worldwide break to have a look at issues we have to do higher. At the moment, we simply did not do issues effectively sufficient.”
Regardless of the huge assets given to Solskjaer as he makes an attempt to rebuild United, there have been only a few rewards for these investments.

All of the objectives we conceded have been disappointing in the best way we conceded. It wasn’t simply the midfield, however we have been too straightforward to play via. Possibly we gave an excessive amount of house however that simply the entire staff. I agree we did not defend effectively sufficient. At the moment, we simply did not do issues effectively sufficient.”
