Solskjaer reveals what affected his players in 4-2 loss to Liverpool
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, the Manchester United manager, has admitted his players were affected by a change in their pre-match preparation, leading to their 4-2 loss to Liverpool on Thursday night.
It was gathered that United had to change their plans, because of fans protesting outside Old Trafford.
Players arrived at the stadium hours before the match, over fears that protestors would stop their coach reaching the ground.
Executive boxes had to be turned into makeshift bedrooms for the players to prepare ahead of the game.
When Solskjaer was asked how the change in preparation had affected his team, he replied: “I think the players handled it well, none of them have complained, just got on with it. We knew it was going to happen so there was no point losing energy on what can’t control.
“Preparation has been different but we’re not going to make an excuse. Everyone who has played at this level knows attention to detail is important and we couldn’t do the usual but, the players handled it well.
“Haven’t’ got result and performance, it’s probably affected them a little bit but not making an excuse of it.”
