Ole Gunnar Solskjaer Aims Dig At Liverpool For Playing Basketball In The Week

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer Aims Dig At Liverpool For Playing Basketball In The Week

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer appeared to aim a thinly-veiled dig at Liverpool over Manchester United's controversial goal.

United opened the scoring in contentious fashion on Sunday as Marcus Rashford tapped in from close range, with VAR checking an incident involving Divock Origi and Victor Lindelof during the build-up. But the goal stood with Jurgen Klopp furious on the sidelines.

"They scored a goal which shows all the problems with VAR. For me, it was a clear foul," the German boss said when asked about Lindelof's challenge on Origi.

Solskjaer, though, believes the correct decision was made and seemed to take a swipe at Liverpool playing basketball ahead of their Old Trafford clash.

"Foul? No chance, we're not playing basketball," the United boss said in his post-match interview. "He touched him but it's not a clear and obvious error."

In the lead up to United vs. Liverpool, some of Klopp's players were pictured playing basketball at Melwood.

Klopp also criticised United's approach but Solskjaer refutes his claim and takes pride in his tactics.

"We set the team up to attack and be aggressive and create chances and I think we did that," he added.

"You can say that it's a bonus we made them look at tactics.

"When you get teams doing something different to what they normally do then you know you have executed your plan."
