Solskjaer: We have to hold our hands up
Watch as the manager gives his opinion on the performance against Burnley in his post-match interview...
It’s a tough night, what did you make of it, overall? It’s hard and sometimes the boys come in and they’ve given everything in a game that, early on, looked like it was going to go our way. In the first half I felt that a bit of quality and luck and we could have scored the first goal. If you don’t get the first goal against Burnley you know you’re in for a tough night because they can defend really well in the box. When they got the second goal, I think that is when all the air went out of the balloon. The fans stayed with you, did you appreciate their support tonight, even though it didn’t go the way we wanted? We hold our hands up and tonight wasn’t good enough, but they always support the team and I’ve felt that support ever since I’ve played here. It’s important that we do in difficult times. We’re all disappointed. The players after disappointed, the club’s disappointed, but what else can we do than come in tomorrow and know that we’re wearing a Man United shirt and work to improve again? Sunday in the FA Cup - it’s relentless. The boys have played so many games and they’ve been fantastic. I’m really proud of them but tonight you’re so disappointed. It’s hold your hands up and that wasn’t good enough for this club. But, you can’t feel sorry for yourself, you’ve got to look forward. What can you do? There are just so many games at the moment… We need to react well, we need to think and use that big muscle between the ears in the right way. That can give you energy or it can zap all your energy. It’s important that we use it to get energy back into us for Sunday. Is it annoying that Chelsea leave the door ajar from last night? So many times and now you feel that we can claw that points tally back and that doesn’t happen. Then again, we’re still fifth and we’ve just got to continue. There are loads of games left and we’re going to do everything we can to get as many points as possible.
