Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer should take a leaf out of Chris Wilder’s book.
When his Sheffield United side were taught a footballing lesson at Anfield a few weeks back, the Englishman took it gracefully and heaped praise on Jurgen Klopp’s team post-match.
Solskjaer though couldn’t find it in himself to do the same – and made some ludicrous comments about our style in the post-game interview.
The Norwegian claimed we play direct football and long balls – and remarkably, that ‘it’s not like they carve you open’.
Time and time again on Sunday, Liverpool sliced through United with ease. There was a period in the second half when in five minutes, we had seven shots.
He’s probably trying to score points with his fans, but it’s a baffling reaction to a game in which his team were bettered in every department.
Listen to the moronic comments, below:
"They're the most direct team in the league. They do put teams under pressure. Play them long balls, second balls, corners."
