Solskjaer: No need to dwell on the past, focus now shifts to Barcelona
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has shifted his focus to the next assignment after he saw Manchester United slump to two back-to-back losses as they were dumped by Wolves out of the FA Cup.
Man United could not get past a resilient Wolves machine and recorded a 2-1 loss after another 2-0 earlier at Arsenal. Solskjaer said that there are many things to look up to for and one of such issues on focus will be their home game against Barcelona in the Champions League quarter-finals.
"Of course, you can't sit down and sulk too long. Of course, we are disappointed, everyone is disappointed with the result today. But we are ready to go again after the internationals. We have so much to play for. Manchester United in April and May always find our form. We cannot wait for the challenge for third and, of course, big nights like when Barcelona come. There are so many highlights to look forward to. Don't worry about the players' attitude because when we come back again we will give it a good go." Solskjaer told Sky Sports.
The Norwegian felt that his side were too comfortable on the ball and did not press their opponents enough to enable them to get good results away from home.
"Last week we were happy with the performance but today we never had the urgency or the quality on the ball. Without the ball, we did OK first half but the tempo on the ball wasn't high enough so we played into their hands really. I think we felt too comfortable in possession. We never managed to put their goalkeeper under pressure. We know we played well against Arsenal last week and didn't get what we deserved. This week we did get what we deserved because we never deserved to win this game." Solskjaer lamented.
