Ole Should Stop Making Excuses About Why Manchester United Lost [OPINION]

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was visibly angry after his team was knocked out of the Carabao Cup by West Ham on Wednesday. Manuel Lanzini's goal in the 10th minute was enough to divide the two teams, and despite bringing on Mason Greenwood and Bruno Fernandes and collecting 27 shots, United were unable to get an equalizer. In nearly three years as United manager, Solskjaer has yet to win a trophy, and this is yet another opportunity that has gone begging, yet he could not criticize his players' attitude following the game.

'They scored, and after that we played brilliantly for extended periods of time, gave it our all, and stats don't matter.' When you have 27 shots, you know the guys have given it their all. 'We generated pressure, Mason Greenwood came in and had a good game, but pressure doesn't always equal results. 'He made a favorable impression; he was young and smart, but it was too late.' We went all out for the last six or seven minutes, and they could have scored a few.'

In a similar vein to Sunday's thrilling triumph at the London Stadium, United manager Jose Mourinho thought his team deserved a penalty kick after Mark Noble seemed to upend Jesse Lingard in the box. 'I don't want to reveal too much, but there was another penalty on Jesse Lingard,' he explained.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer should stop making excuses by talking about the penalty that Manchester United were not awarded, instead he should accept the fact that his team lost due to his decision making which was risky and foolish by having players like Ronaldo take a rest.
