Solskjær on the Liverpool match: - Like a boxer who was beaten

On Friday, the Norwegian used boxing terminology when he was going to describe the feeling of the first round where most things went wrong at home against the archenemy.

– We felt like boxers who got beaten up in the first round. We had the chance, but we conceded a goal. We wanted to fix it, and then we became very open and panicked against a good teamSolskjaer said, continuing to refer to British heavyweight champion Tyson Fury.

Tyson Fury has also been fired on occasion. It’s amazing how quiet it is on Earth. Counts to 6, 7, 8, then wakes up and is ready again. We may have woken up too early.


Solskjaer described Sunday’s defeat as the darkest day on the job at United. There’s no doubt that the days that followed were tough, too. The British and international press was full of speculation about when the Norwegian would be expelled.

– It’s been a tough week. We had to deal with the result and the performance which we know wasn’t good enough. But I have to say we had a really good week in training,” Solskjaer said.

On Tuesday, legend Alex Ferguson paid him a visit to United’s training ground. And at the press conference ahead of Saturday’s away game against Tottenham, he was asked if he was talking to Fergie, and if he thought he could save the job despite the sporting setbacks, as the Scot did in the late 1980s.

– Yes. on both. If it’s short and sweet, Solskjaer replied, before you go into detail.

I’ve had some terrible moments here as a player, and I’ve had to deal with crises here as a coach as well. One thing I can say is that I will always try to fight for it.

It’s just a lie

Solskjær also had a chicken to pick with the media due to some articles written last week. A post in The Sun that he and Paul Pogba are in conflict with each other has received a lot of attention.

– After this match, you expect to hear it from right, left and center. But we cannot accept lies. Paul came to me angry and said what he posted ( In social media ). When it’s a pure lie, they should stand up to it, Solskjaer says and makes a clear plea to the press:

We accept all opinions, but we don’t make lies about me and the players.

damage free

For now, Solskjær will be sitting in the manager’s chair at one of the world’s biggest football clubs. But it’s not inconceivable that he needs a good result – not least a better performance – against Spurs to keep the job.

On the plus side, the club’s injury condition is looking better than ever.

Paul (Pogba) is suspended of course, but apart from that it is a completely injury-free team. It’s a very strange situation to be in. I had 30 guys trained this week, says the Norwegian.

Saturday’s duel kicks off in London at 18.30 Norwegian time.
