Ole Gunnar Solskjaer ’Embarrassed’ By Man Utd Form But Not Drawn On His Future

Posted by

As the pressure built following a 4-1 thrashing at Watford, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer confessed he is “embarrassed” by Manchester United’s current form but refused to be drawn on his future.

United had lost four of their previous six Premier League games prior to the international break, and this crushing setback just added to the misery for the beleaguered Norwegian.

Watford led 2-0 at halftime thanks to goals from Josh King and Ismaila Sarr, before Donny van de Beek equalized. However, after United captain Harry Maguire was sent out after 69 minutes, the Red Devils were punished by late goals from Joao Pedro and Emmanuel Dennis.

Solskjaer, who revealed he went over to apologise to the travelling fans after the game, told Sky Sports: “I feel for the fans and I feel the same as them – we’re embarrassed by losing the way we do. We know we are in a very bad run and a bad situation, but that’s football and I know they’ll support whoever is on the pitch every day, and sometimes you’ve got to say sorry.”

Solskjaer shrugged off the inevitable speculation about his future, adding: “I’m working for and with the club and I’ve done that for 18 years. We’ve got a good communication and if the club were thinking about doing something then that is between me and the club.
