Ole Solskjaer Responds To Paul Scholes And Hargreaves Over Wrong Selection Claim Against Roma

Scholes and Hargreaves claimed the United boss should have made a change to his midfield during their 2-1 slip

Man United are one leg into the Europa League final after stumping out AS Roma at the Old Trafford.

The Red Devils pulled the first trigger when Bruno Fernandes finished off a fine set up from Pogba + Cavani combo.

But the Italians shocked United to have responded in just minutes as they stole the lead and remained victorious until the end of the first half.

At this point already, two Man United legends who served as pundits to BT Sport during the game suggested Ole made a change to his Fred, McTominay and Pogba midfield selection.

But United came back into the second half with a stronger mentality, reclaimed their victory and deepened wounds on Roma skins.

With the result in hand, Solskjaer was bold at the post match conference to send responding messages to the pundits who claimed he made wrong selections.

“It’s easy up there thinking who should play … but who should not play?” the 48-year-old asked BT Sport.

“That’s a very good team, it worked really good against Tottenham. Mason Greenwood should be disappointed not to be playing but it’s about balance.

“Maybe those two should try to leave players out and pick a team with balance. We know we have got creative players who can create big moments.

“Paul Pogba’s position today was very good in that position, he’s allowed some freedom. He’s got the foundation behind him. The difference today is we took most of our chances.

“The character showed that they came back and didn’t lose their heads. Maybe five or 10 minutes at the end of the first half, we didn’t look great but we got ourselves together.

“The two goals are junior, schoolboy errors that shouldn’t happen at this level.”
