Solskjaer's press conference
The boss spoke to reporters at Old Trafford shortly after the final whistle…
Q: Lowest point at United? Yeah, you can say that. Of course it’s at home, it’s a team that we’ve assembled that we hope – we see the potential in it and we know how good they can be. But today all our mistakes came, it’s almost like Christmas, everything came at once. Too many mistakes against a good team and you’ll be punished. Q: Message to the fans? Yeah, it’s very embarrassing. It’s hurt all the players, it’s hurt me as the manager it’s my worst day ever. Hold my hand up, I’m responsible for this. But I’ve been part of a team – well I’ve lost 5-0 for United, we’ve lost 6-1, we’ve lost big results before and we’ve always bounced back and I promise we’ll do everything we can to turn this round. Q: Half-time subs at 3-1? Well 4-1, so got to get that right. 4-1. Needed Scott with fresh legs and had a couple of knocks. We wanted to get out there, be aggressive, try to get the first goal and then we concede after five or six minutes and then 5-1, then the game’s over. We wanted to be more aggressive, but after 5-1 we became really passive. Q: Are transfers an issue for you with the board? No, it’s not an issue at all. Q: Might you look at transfers from EFL after window closes? Well we’re not going to, I’m not going to go into that here now. Tonight it’s about addressing this and we know what we want do and you’ll know more tomorrow night because the window closes. We need to look at what we’ve got here and make more of that. Q: Annoyed at sending off? For me, yeah of course I am. There’s two emotions there, well done Anthony for not going down, trying to con the referee to send Lamela off, because he puts his arm on Anthony’s chest and throat. Then you shouldn’t react, of course Anthony knows he can’t react like this. Putting two fingers on this throat, but then come on. You can’t go down like that, it’s an absolute joke for me that a lad can stay up for five second before he decides to go down. If that was my son he’d live on water and bread for two weeks. That’s not how I want my players to act. Q: Happy it’s taken until last day of window to get deals done? The world is a different world at the moment. Of course everyone wants to have the squad they want as early as possible. We are still in a position that we can add to this. I’ve got a squad that I need to get more of and I need to get more out of these, but we can still maybe, by tomorrow night have an addition.
