Ole Gunnar Solskjaer criticized the way fans acted to express their anger last Sunday, invading Old Trafford by force.
When the anger of Manchester United fans overflows, there are consequences, and victims, sometimes innocent. The invasion of Old Trafford shocked the football world and moved the club, causing the Manchester United-Liverpool Premier League poster to be postponed on Sunday.
Hundreds of supporters took to the “Theater of Dreams” on Sunday afternoon, shouting “We want the Glazers gone”, the super rich Florida family who took control of the Red Devils in 2005. These protests are the result of a tenacious resentment of the supporters towards the owners. The dissenting Super League project has shattered fans who had already protested twice in the previous days.
Solskjaer: “Everyone has the right to demonstrate, but …”
However, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, manager of the Red Devils, does not understand that some have come to such extremes: “It was a difficult day for us, he said Wednesday. We wanted to play, we wanted to beat Liverpool for the fans. Our job is to have good performances, good results, that is my goal and that of the players. As I said before the game, we have to listen to them. Everyone has the right protest, but it must be done in a civilized and peaceful manner. Unfortunately, when you break in, when police officers are marked for life (two police officers were injured in clashes), it goes too far. it’s a matter for the police. It’s no longer a question of showing one’s opinions. “
Manchester United travels to Rome on Thursday, with the ticket for the Europa League final, scheduled for Gdansk, almost acquired. The Red Devils will start at the Stadio Olimpico with four goals in advance, strong of the drop (6-2) inflicted on the Romans in the first leg at Old Trafford. And after two and a half seasons on the bench without winning a title, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will hold with this almost acquired final his first opportunity to fill his coaching record at MU.
