After QPR’s humiliation, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer risks repeating Manchester United’s transfer blunder.
Manchester United were defeated by Queens Park Rangers in their pre-season match.
Despite a shocking humiliation, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has signed a three-year deal with Manchester United, and visiting fans at the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium exhausted the songbook to demonstrate their unwavering support.
Adidas and Manchester United have unveiled their official 2021/22 home jersey, which features a modern take on the club’s traditional designs.
On the day he committed his future to the club until 2024, Solskjaer observed the young Red Devils lose 4-2 to QPR in a pre-season friendly.
Sharp QPR were definitely ahead of United in their preparations, bringing an unrivaled level of intensity two weeks before the Championship season began.
Of course, outcomes are immaterial at this point, but winning generates confidence and momentum, and Solskjaer will be concerned about the style of this setback, as a young defense floundered.
With three stunning unanswered second-half goals from Lydon Dykes (x2) and trialist Moses Odubajo, Mark Warbuton’s organized, energetic squad stunned United.
Bright A Charlie Austin header had earlier cancelled off Jesse Lingard’s composed third-minute finish.
Anthony Elanga, a graduate of the Academy, scored a left-footed goal into the bottom corner to save the game.
It’ll be unsettling to concede four goals against Championship opposition, but Solskjaer can point to some positives.
The Red Devils were without three first-choice central defenders, made eight changes, and faced a hard test in the form of the Premier League’s hottest promotion contenders.
But Solskjaer has been warned of United’s lack of squad depth on numerous occasions, and the issue was underscored against QPR.
United tried out a 4-3-3 formation that they intend to adopt in the upcoming season, but Nemanja Matic struggled to keep control of the back four.
Andreas Pereria and Jesse Lingard joined Matic in a midfield that resembled a United side from 2018.
The Serbian veteran and Pereira have demonstrated that they are not United’s future, and the latter cannot even be used as squad depth.
United need to buy a dependable central defensive midfielder to assist them implement Solskjaer’s new system and improve their overall quality.
While the Red Devils’ first-choice back four would almost definitely have made them less susceptible against QPR, they would have been without an exceptional central defender in Raphael Varane. “Brinkwire News in Condensed Form.”
