Solskjaer blames Jurgen Klopp for United’s lack of penalties

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer believes his side are not getting penalties following comments by Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp.

“I hear now that Manchester United had more penalties in two years than I had in five and a half years,” Klopp said in January.

According to Solskjaer United have failed to get penalties since Klopp’s comments.

“There was a certain manager last year who was starting to worry about us getting penalties,” said Solskjaer.

“After that, it seems like the decisions are more difficult to give.”

Solskjaer felt his side were denied two stonewall penalties in a 2-1 league win against West Ham last Sunday.

Meanwhile, he also felt his side should have had a spot-kick in a Carabao Cup defeat by the Hammers on Wednesday.

Klopp made his comments after a 1-0 defeat against Southampton last season in which he felt his side should have been awarded a penalty.

“Surely I’ve seen a big, big difference since then on,” added Solskjaer.

“But we just have to leave it up to the refs and hope that they will make the right calls very soon.”

United, who are level on 13 points with Liverpool after five top-flight games, face Aston Villa on Saturday.
