Solskjaer slams Klopp for lack of penalties


Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has blamed Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp for his side’s lack of penalties in the current season.

The Norwegian mentor believes that the ‘Red Devils’ are not getting penalties following comments by Klopp back in January 2021.

The ‘Reds’ manager made his comments after a 1-0 loss against Southampton last season in which he felt his side should have been awarded a penalty, he said: “I hear now that Manchester United had more penalties in two years than I had in five and a half years.”

Speaking in a press conference ahead of Saturday’s league clash against Aston Villa, Solskjaer stated that: “There was a certain manager last year who was starting to worry about us getting penalties.

“After that, it seems like the decisions are more difficult to give.

“Surely I’ve seen a big, big difference since then.

“But we just have to leave it up to the refs and hope that they will make the right calls  very soon.”

This comes after Solskjaer felt his side were denied “two stonewall penalties” in a 2-1 league win against West Ham last Sunday, and also felt like United should have had a spot-kick in a Carabao Cup defeat by the ‘Hammers’ on Wednesday.
