Manchester United Fan Reduced To Tears After Seeing Team Drop Points Against Southampton
A die-hard Manchester United fan was reduced to tears after seeing his team drop points against Southampton.
United went 1-0 up in the first half through Daniel James' stunning strike but were pegged back by Jannik Vestergaard's header and couldn't make the most of the one man advantage after Kevin Danso was sent off in the second half.
It left United three games without a win following their 4-0 thumping of Chelsea in their opening game - and led to United supporter Mickey's emotions spilling out.
The elderly fan was praising Aaron Wan-Bissaka's display at right-back, saying: "That right-back is something different. That Aaron he's brilliant... he wins that ball so much..."
But Mickey soon got choked up outside St Mary's and said he was upset with the two dropped points because of how much it means to him.
Having suffered more disappointment on the road, United now find themselves in seventh place in the table.
Solskjaer described the recent run as a "a dip in results, not a dip in form" and said United did enough to come away from the South Coast with all three points.
But Jermaine Jenas, speaking on Match of the Day, did not concur with Solskjaer's viewpoint.
"I totally disagree (with Solskjaer)," he said on the BBC show, via Manchester Evening News.
"In terms of being clinical, you have to create those opportunities and in my opinion these are half chances.
"Ole said they dominated the game and need to be more clinical. They had a decent start but once they got the goal they completely took the foot off the pedal and let Southampton back into the game.
"They only started creating half chances when Southampton went down to ten men. Until that point the game was only going to Southampton. They didn't create anything and they didn't look like scoring.
"I did not see the game that was described to me by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer."
After the international break, United will face an in-form Leicester City side at Old Trafford as they look to get back to winning ways.
