Roy Keane and Micah Richards were both in agreement over the reaction to Manchester United ’s 2-1 defeat to Young Boys.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and his side came in for criticism after their Champions League campaign got off to a losing start.
After taking a 0-1 lead through Cristiano Ronaldo, an Aaron Wan-Bissaka red card changed the dynamic of the game.
Keane and Richards were discussing the defeat on Sky Sports, prior to United’s Super Sunday game against West Ham.
Both agreed things get blown out of proportion when analysing their results.
Keane said: “Southampton away from home, they weren’t great, probably could’ve got beat. The Wolves one, they got the win but weren’t that great, so I wasn’t that shocked. It happens, we all made mistakes.
“You mentioned the point everything’s exaggerated. They beat Newcastle everything’s great, lose during the week it’s a disaster. It’s still early in the season takes time to bed in, they’ll be disappointed but plenty of time to bounce back.”
Richards agreed United can be unfairly judged but did question some of the tactics of Solskjaer during the game.
“I think it was [blown out of proportion] when you go down to 10 men, it’s difficult and don’t forget you’re playing on a plastic pitch as well for your knees and ankles, they’re used to it. But that’s not making excuses, the Wan-Bissaka challenge changed the whole game.
Is Ole Gunnar Solskjaer the right man to take Manchester United forward? Let us know in the comments section.
"The one thing I couldn’t understand was towards the end of the game, he took off Fred and brought on Martial at the time it was 1-1 they ended up losing the game 2-1, if you look at the tactical element of it, I couldn’t quite understand it.
“In terms of people saying Ole isn’t good enough, I just believe on that occasion it was difficult because of the red card.”
