Manchester United defeat by Wolves a 'big step backwards' - Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

Manchester United defeat by Wolves a 'big step backwards' - Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

Solskjaer's former Manchester United team-mate Paul Scholes left his position as Oldham Athletic manager on Friday after just a month in charge and the Norwegian has opened the door for him to come and talk about his experiences. There's so many factors you need to think about when you sign players.

"But we are ready to go again after the internationals".

"It's not easy - I don't know if it's easy either - when you're in the media or when you're a supporter, you can think short-term".

Bale has been at Real Madrid since 2013 and is a four-time victor of the Champions League, although there is no chance of a fifth this term after bowing out to Ajax in the round of 16.

Should they succeed, and Solskjaer's team keeps creating chances, United's superior quality in front of goal will shine through.

"It was the poorest performance we've had", said Solskjaer. Every team has quality and we can not win all the time.

Manchester United head coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was upbeat after his side were drawn against Barcelona in the quarter-finals of the Champions League, insisting that they would have to beat everyone if they are to lift the trophy.

Wolves are an impressive side - probably the best of the rest outside the Premier League's top six - and Nuno Espirito Santo's players were fully deserving of the 2-1 victory, secured by second-half Raul Jimenez and Diogo Jota goals, which confirmed the club's first FA Cup semifinal place for 21 years.

"I think I've answered that question quite well here", he said with a smile.

"Any game you lose is a big anti-climax".

"We were very disappointed in the result, it hurts more than anything, but we can't look at the performance and say we were s***, because we weren't, to be honest and blunt".

"We got what we deserved".
