Following backlashing from fans after 2 : 1 defeat to Turkish side Istanbul Basaksehir, Solskjær reacts to sack claims & defeat to Istanbul.
The Manchester United Manage Ole Gunnar Solskjær has reacted to both the sack claims and defeat to Istanbul after crashing United’s 100% record in the Champions League.

According Ole, lack of communication and good decisions made his side conceive the first goal.
“It’s not easy to be positive now when you’ve lost the way we did,”
“But we have a chance on Saturday morning (against Everton) to get going again.” Ole told United Report
“The performance wasn’t good enough against a team that ran and worked and caught us on the break. We didn’t defend well enough. It’s unforgivable, the first one.
“The second (goal), we weren’t well organised enough to counter-press and win the ball back. Two tough goals to give away and we didn’t have enough to come back in the second half.
“It’s set us back a lot,” he added after the game. “You get a reality check when you play a football game here. You don’t just turn up and get three points in the Champions League.
“We played against lots of good individuals in a good team, well set up and organised. We weren’t good enough.”
It’s no doubt that the defeat has put Solskjær under even greater pressure and Roy Keane, who has refrained from criticizing the manager, suggested that the players could get him sacked.
“I decline to comment on such a thing,” he said. “Opinions are there. Have to stay strong. Employed to do a job and doing that to the best of my ability.”
