OGS - Focus on derby, move on from CL crash out

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wants his troops to turn their attention to the derby this weekend.

United lost to Leipzig 3-2 and as a result have now crashed out of the Europa League in the group stages. However, according to OGS, they have little time to be sad as the big Manchester derby is set to take place this weekend.

“We started too late. Great spirit and comeback again,” Solskjaer said after the game.

“It’s different to the Premier League, you can’t give a team a three-goal lead and expect to come back. We were unlucky towards the end and you almost thought it was in at the last minute there.

“Of course you can’t say we were good enough, we weren’t. In a difficult group of course, the big defeat for us was the one away to Istanbul – that’s where we lost the points we should have had.

“Today we were close but we knew we had to defend crosses and balls into the box and we just couldn’t clear them.

“As a footballer you can’t feel sorry for yourself. You feel sorry for a few minutes tonight and then we focus on a massive game on Saturday.”
