Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has blamed the ball used in our Europa League match at Club Brugge as reason for the lack of quality in team play.

“It’s just different and difficult to play with,” Solskjaer said of the ball during his post-match presser, as quoted by the Daily Mail. “You can get one and try! It’s light.

“But it’s the same for the two teams, of course. But the conditions weren’t nice, the wind and the rain. But anyway, strange goals for both teams. Their throw-in we scored from and a long kick straight through the middle, so lack of concentration probably from both teams there.

“We needed to make everyone part of the squad (so I made changes), gave them games.”

Anthony Martial’s goal secured the Red Devils a draw at Jan Breydel Stadium.

“We’ve got so many games now, so we got an away goal, we got a draw. We go home next week so hopefully, we can finish the job,” the Norwegian added.
