Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was disappointed over Chelsea’s Callum Hudson-Odoi handball incident penalty denied by referee during their match.
Solskjaer is believing that pressure from outside, made referee to reject their penalty after Chelsea winger Callum Hudson-Odoi appeared to handle the ball in the box.
The Manchester United boss is sick for how they were treated on last match, as VAR advising referee Stuart Atwell to watch a replay of an incident, but opted to stick with his original on-field decision of a free-kick.
Solskajer spoke with Sky Sports about the penalty decision, he reply, “Yep, 100 per cent. They’re shouting it’s handball for our player, but when you look at it on the video, it’s taken two points away from us.”
“It’s not right, is it?” he said. “It’s all these outside influences, even the VAR talk before the game here on Harry, when they put that on the website, that’s cheeky. It’s influencing referees. You can go back and look at the website. It’s putting pressure on the referees to give penalties against us.
“We’ve seen, there was a manager – was it Frank? [Lampard] – there’s loads of talk about us getting penalties, when there is no doubt whatsoever. Now we should’ve had one, that’s clear to this.”
Manchester United is currently 12 points behind Manchester City after draw with Chelsea. This week, they are expecting to have derby with City.
