Ole Gunnar Solskjaer Apologises For Smiling In Post-Match Interview After 4-1 Defeat To Watford, It's A Difficult Watch

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer apologised for smiling in his post-match interview following the club's disastrous 4-1 defeat to Watford.

It was an awful Saturday afternoon for Solskjaer's men, who went 2-0 behind at half-time after goals from Joshua King and Ismaila Sarr.

Donny van de Beek, one of the few bright sparks for United, gave his side hope with a close-range finish but the Reds conceded twice in the final minutes as Joao Pedro and Emmanuel Bonaventure secured all three points.

After the full-time whistle, a defeated Solskjaer spoke to Sky reporter Geoff Shreeves and well, it was a difficult watch from start to finish.

In the post-match interview, he struggled to answer why his players aren't in the right frame of mind as United, who suffered a fifth Premier League defeat in seven games at Vicarage road, fall 12 points behind leaders Chelsea.

You can see the interview below.

After Shreeves asked about their frame of mind, Solskjaer smiled and laughed before apologising for his actions. "Sorry for smiling there," he said.

In the same interview, the Norwegian said Harry Maguire was unlucky to be sent off. Just five minutes after picking up a yellow card for hauling down Ismaila Sarr, United's captain was sent for an early bath.

He dawdled on the ball and as a result, Watford midfielder Tom Cleverley took advantage. Moments later, Maguire brought him down and referee Jon Moss had no other option but to send him off.


Thoughts on Solskjaer's interview? Is he still the right man for the job?

Let us know in the comments.
