Ole Gunnar Solskjaer refused to criticize Fred for his sloppy mistake in Manchester United’s FA Cup loss to Leicester City.
Solskjaers United beat their rivals 3-1 in the quarterfinals of the competition the Premier League and was far from their best.
Goals from Kelechi Iheanacho and Youri Tielemans secured victory for Leicester, who will face Southampton in the semi-finals. Mason Greenwood scored some consolation for the Red Devils.
Iheanacho’s first destination was an absolute gift from Fred. A sloppy back pass left Dean Henderson stuck as Iheanacho rounded him and scored an open goal.
« We want to build from behind and we want the players to be confident – sometimes it doesn’t work and this time it doesn’t, » Solskjaer told BBC Sport.
« We don’t point our fingers or blame – that second is a good target for the boy, but maybe we could have reached him with a shot of energy and it wouldn’t have been so easy in the middle. »
« That was one of our strengths, keeping sheets clean and being persistent, but we didn’t get a chance. »
« We didn’t have a spark tonight – but it’s understandable, » he added. ‘This team has been fantastic the last three or four months.
“We played every three days and we were on a great run. It just caught up with us, all the games and travel.
“Thursday evening in Milan was a great night and it took a lot off our body. We didn’t have an extra zip, no extra authority, and no extra confidence today.
“We tried to get on the forefoot and start well because sometimes you can get that adrenaline rush and confidence when you hit a goal and that can get you over the line.
« We have too many players who have played too many games and too many who haven’t had much football. Anthony Martial, Donny van de Beek, Paul Pogba and others are trying to get in who haven’t had enough football. » . We didn’t have enough against a tough team. «
