Manchester United Dumped Out Of UEFA Champions League! This was their third defeat in their group.
Manchester United will now play in the Europa League knockout stages. United conceded 3 goals before Paul Pogba and Bruno Fernandes pulled 2 goals back for Manchester United.
Ole Gunnar Solksjaer lamented his side’s eagerness for victory in the game.
“We didn’t perform as a team well enough,” Solskjær told the media after the match.
“That is the manager’s responsibility. We never got going – we didn’t turn up until they got the second goal.
“You can’t say that we were good enough. We weren’t good enough. We were in a difficult group and obviously the big turning point was the loss away in Istanbul.
“That’s where we lost points we should have got. Today we had to defend crosses into the box and we just didn’t deal with them.” The United boss exclaimed.
Manchester United host Manchester City in the Manchester Derby this weekend. They will need to regroup for this tough fixture.
“As a footballer you have to feel sorry for a few minutes and then focus on Saturday, that is a massive game and it is something we have to look forward to,” he added on.
Manchester United came into the game on a good run of form. They had come back from a 1-goal deficit to beat West Ham 3-1 on Saturday.
Ole Gunnar Solksjaer is under more pressure to keep his job. The defeat resulted in more of the United faithful calling for him to be sacked.
