Is Ole Solskjaer blaming Klopp for Manchester United’s penalty misfortune this season?

By Obiajulu Chiagoziem

Last season, Manchester United had too many penalties awarded to them. As it were, they seemed to be getting atleast a penalty in three out of five games.

However, it hasn’t been the same this season as the club’s clear penalties decisions are denied them.

Ole Gunnar Solskajaer, Manchester United head manager, during his pre match interview for tomorrow’s match against Aston Villa, has pointed out some facts relating to the club’s penalties denials.

He indirectly made reference to a certain manager who pointed out Manchester United penalty shoot outs last season.

Klopp’s comment on Manchester United’s penalties

“We just have to hope we get what we deserve,” said Solskjaer. “We should have had three penalties in the last two games.

“There was a certain manager last year worrying about us getting penalties, and it seems since then that the decisions were more difficult to give. I’ve seen a big difference since then. We just have to leave it up to the refs, and hopefully, they’ll make the right calls very soon.”, Ole said in the interview.

Ronaldo, who was rested for the cup clash with West Ham, is expected to return for the visit of Villa to Old Trafford.

Edinson Cavani has also recovered from injury and will be in the squad, with Solskjaer now looking forward to seeing the pair play together.

Speaking on Cavani’s return, Ole said “He’s in the squad. He’s been training, and now he feels ready to contribute. He came on against Wolverhampton, then he got a slight strain in the international break when we had a game, and now he’s ready again.

“He’s worked really hard and diligently as he always does, and hopefully, he can have an impact like he did last season.

“It’s exciting to see them two together. I’m sure that will be a good partnership, wanting to be on the end of things.” he concluded.
