The Red Devils boss believes his side had a good game despite failing to progress into the next round
Manchester United manager Ole Gunner Solskjaer has praise his boys following a frustrating loss to West Ham.
Solskjear’s side bow out of the Carabao Cup after Lanzini handed the Hammers a 1-0 win, in what was their first victory at Old Trafford since 2007.
United were very much expected to rides over the London side, but West Ham proved too strong for the Red Devils.
The Premier League giant is currently on a four-year run without a trophy, their longest barren run since 1989.
Despite missing out on a piece of potential silverware, Solskjaer is very much confident his squad gave it a ‘good go’.
In an exclusive interview, following the game, he revealed:
“”It was a poor start again, that needs addressing. After that we played well for long periods and gave it a good go. Stats don’t mean anything but when you’ve got 27 shots you know the boys have given it a good go.
“We didn’t create big chances but we created pressure. Mason Greenwood had a big chance but sometimes that pressure doesn’t come to anything. Of course, in the last few minutes we had to go gung-ho and they could have scored another.
“You want to go through but it’s a long season. Everyone gave it a good go. I can’t fault their attitude. We’ve got big games coming up and that’s the decision we made.”
