Manchester United boss has criticized the VAR and referees work in the league.
After seeing their goal checked off by the VAR decision in theRed Devils
victory over Tottenham,
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer
has talked about the referees saying that to prepare his players for such incidents, they intentionally make wrong decisions as referees in training. However, he is happy with his side’s performance and focus after facing such an incident in the game.
“Everyone knows this group of players has so much football talent, but last weekend they really showed us what their mentality was all about,”
the Norwegian wrote in United Review ahead of his side’s clash with Burnley at Old Trafford on Sunday
“It would have been so easy to lose focus after not allowing a brilliant goal from Edi, especially if we had fallen behind so quickly, but the guys have regrouped, stayed calm and really showed their character, by dominating the second half. “
“How you react when decisions don’t go your way is a test that is only part of the game. We have often made deliberately bad referee decisions during practice to remind players that these things are happening.
“Sometimes we honestly get them wrong anyway, so we know what a tough job it is. I was really pleased to see that in the face of adversity they come together and react correctly.”
Solskjaer’s men will face Burnley in their next Premier League after beating Tottenham to show the improvements in the team, but not winning a trophy with Solskjaer still hurts his reputation, and his only chance of winning a title this season is Europa League, where they face Roma in the semi-final.
