Leicester loss reaction, Solskjaer pressure builds, Ronaldo told to clap fans, Tchouameni transfer


Under-fire United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer insists he’s unfazed by mounting pressure despite yesterday’s 4-2 loss at Leicester.

Comeback striker Marcus Rashford levelled at 2-2 but Harry Maguire had a nightmare return at centre-back as Jamies Vardy and Patson Daka struck late on to dump the Red Devils down to fifth place.

Solskjaer said: “Every time you lose, the pressure builds of course but we are used to living with that pressure.

“We are Man Utd; setbacks have happened before, worse performances, and we’ve got to bounce back on Wednesday (vs Atalanta). I believe in this team.”

The Norwegian blamed “sloppy” defending and claimed frontman Cristiano Ronaldo was suffering from poor service not disappointing form.

But midfielder Paul Pogba told BBC Sport: “We deserved to lose… conceding easy goals, stupid goals.

“We need to be more mature, play with more experience and arrogance in a good way. 

“We need to change. We need to find the right mentality and the right tactic. Stick with it and resolve the problem.”

Meanwhile, United are again being linked with Monaco’s Aurelien Tchouameni, in case Pogba departs next summer.

But Liverpool, Man City, PSG and Juventus are also thought to be keen on the £50million-rated 21-year-old.
