Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has spoken to Sky Sports after Manchester United’s 4-1 loss at Watford.

On Sky Sports News at 5.33pm, Solskjaer was interviewed following another hugely disappointing afternoon.

The first half performance at Vicarage Road was nowhere near good enough, and not the reaction which Solskjaer needed after the Manchester derby defeat.

There was improvement in the second period, but Harry Maguire’s red card killed any hopes of a comeback victory.

“There’s not a lot of point saying too much about it apart from we didn’t handle the first half at all,” he said. “We allowed them to get into our box too easy, we were outfought.

“Second half, so much better. Created six big chances. You just can’t catch two goals in the Premier League. First half was very, very poor. We need to get the players in a better frame of mind to start the game.


“That’s human beings. You’re surprised because all these lads are good lads, top players, top professionals. The first yellow card should never have been because the boy is offside. That should be looked at as well.

When asked if he would understand if the board made a change, Solskjaer said: “I’ve worked here for 18 years, and if the board is thinking of doing something, that’s a conversation for between me and them. The results are not good enough. Something’s wrong.

“We’re embarrassed. I feel for the fans and I feel the same as the fans. Sometimes you’ve got to say sorry and I said sorry for the performance.

“I work as hard as I can, and that (his future) is not for me to worry about. I’m not going to discuss that here and now. I’m feeling very low, put it that way.”

The question marks over Solskjaer’s future will intensify now, and it is now a case of what is the straw which breaks the camel’s back?

Only the owners know what they are planning, but it is another huge week, with Villarreal and Chelsea away coming up in the days ahead.
