Solskjaer had to calm his players down at half-time against Burnley after two big VAR decisions went against Man United

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has said that after two big VAR decisions went against them, he had to calm his players down at half-time against Burnley.

The Red Devils will finally triumph 1-0 at Turf Moor through Paul Pogba’s shot, sending them to the top of the table, after taking in their manager’s terms.

After Robbie Brady appeared to deny Edinson Cavani a goal-scoring chance with a foul outside the box, United may have been a man up in the first half, but after video analysis, referee Kevin Friend overlooked Brady’s foul and instead called United defender Luke Shaw for an earlier challenge, handing a yellow card to the left-back.

Due to a controversial foul by the defender during his jump, United defender Harry Maguire then appeared to score the opener with a header, only for the goal to be called back.

Solskjaer understood that his players were frustrated by the decisions of the referee and wanted to be patient at the break.

“You’ve got to calm them down at half-time because emotions are running high because they disagree with the things that happen out there,” Solskjaer told Sky Sports.

“So we have to take back control and we played well in the second half and we held out at the end.”

“I haven’t watched any of the decisions so I can’t say. Apparently, Luke’s might have been a foul, so that’s probably the right decision, certainly not a foul for Harry for his goal. If you can’t jump and head it in like this, I don’t think it’s near a foul anywhere. After a bit of a tough first half-hour, pleased with the response.”

In the 71st minute, Pogba finally found a winner, with Solskjathe French star is finding his best form after a tough spell earlier in the season.
