Solskjaer blames Klopp for Manchester United not getting penalties

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has rightly claimed there has been a difference in penalty calls for Manchester United since the Liverpool coach Jurgen Klopp questioned the number of penalties they had received.

Klopp complained in January United had X amount more penalties in two years than he had in five-and-a-half-years, in attempt to draw focus to Solskjaer.

Cristiano Ronaldo was denied two stonewall penalities in the 2-1 win at West Ham last weekend and Solskjaer felt Jesse Lingard deserved one in the 1-0 League Cup defeat against the Hammers in midweek.

United have yet to be given a penalty this season despite several shouts.

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

“There was a certain manager last year who was starting to worry about us getting pens and after that it seems like the decisions are more difficult to give.

“I’ve seen a big, big difference since then. We just have to leave it to the refs and hopefully they’ll make the right calls very soon.”

Solskjaer speaking straight out of Sir Alex Ferguson’s book.

There’s no harm in biting back at club or putting the pressure back on referees to fix their mistakes. A lot of bad decisions have gone against us already this season, but thankfully we remain unbeaten in the league with Aston Villa up next this weekend.
