Manchester United head coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has revealed why his team has been denied penalties consistently on four different occasions. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer believes his side are not getting penalties because of the comments made by Liverpool head coach Jurgen Klopp.
Why Ole Gunnar Solskjaer Blames Jurgen Klopp for No Penelty Awarded to United
In January, Jurgen Klopp said: “I hear now that Manchester United had more penalties in two years than I had in five and a half years.” Because of this statement, Ole Gunnar Solsjkaer said: “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.”
Solskjaer felt his side were denied “two stonewall penalties” in a 2-1 win over West Ham United in the English Premier League last Sunday. Also, his side was also denied a penalty in their 1-0 loss to the same West Ham United in Carabao Cup on Wednesday.
Klopp made his comments after a 1-0 defeat against Southampton last season in which he felt his side should have been awarded a penalty. Solsjkaer said since then he has seen a big, big difference since but they have to leave it up to the refs and hope that they will make the right calls very soon.”
Manchester United is levelled on points with both Liverpool and Chelsea, who are all on 13 points. They will face Aston Villa on Saturday at 12:30 BST.
