Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is disappointed with the decision not to grant a penalty against Chelsea in a 0-0 Premier League match.
After consulting with VAR, chief referee Stuart Attwell agreed not to award a penalty to the Londoners in the first half after the ball struck midfielder Callum Hudson-hand.
“I’m not going to comment on Shaw’s words because it could backfire on him. I don’t want to initiate a discussion, but isn’t it incorrect? It’s all due to external factors.”
Speaking of VAR and Chelsea’s Maguire, the coach told The Guardian, “It’s cheeky to put it on the website, it affects the referees. You can read what they wrote on the website about placing pressure on the referees over the penalty problem in our goal,” he said.
“Have we heard the coaches, who started it all with Lampard? Even though there is no doubt, there has been a lot of talk about us receiving fines. And now we have today’s case, in which we should have earned a penalty.”
“I suppose the officials thought Hudson-hand Odoi’s was in a normal position when he struck the ball. After a ruckus a month or two ago about fines being awarded in our favor, I’m a little worried that we won’t get any. The referees are affected by the coaches.”
