“Embarrassing what the defense was doing,” Red Devils club legend Paul Scholes told Manchester United television studios, who were overwhelmed by the mistakes made by Solskjaer’s charges.
Especially the first, when they played a corner kick and completely forgot about the former Newcastle and Chelsea players of 35-year-old Dembu Ba, who then ran from the halfway line alone to the goalkeeper Henderson and scored comfortably.
“Only decades will the boys forget that there must be at least one defender left in the back,” Scholes said at the BT Sport studio.

And when, after Mata’s mistake in the middle of the field, the home team made a quick attack and the legionnaire from Bosnia Višča added a second goal to Basaksehir, he got upset again.
“It’s coming for me. It’s unforgivable, so we just can’t get cheap goals. Not especially in the Champions League. I am responsible for the fact that the players did not perform defensive tasks, “the Norwegian coach Soljskjaer tried to defend his charges.

Not to mention that the Red Devils are in the Premier League with a gain of seven points from six matches to fifteen.
Now, of course, speculation about Solskjaer’s end has intensified. Especially when they call the Red Devils’ performance against Basaksehir comedic in the Islands and sarcastically recall that the plague of domestic suffering has already spread to the continent.
“I’ve already faced similar pressure, so I’m not dealing with it,” Solskjaer declined to comment on the appeal.
“We are disappointed, just as we were our game and the result was disappointed after Arsenal. But we are a team and everyone has to deduce their responsibility from this and prove it against Everton in the league on Saturday. Just because we are Man United, “said midfielder Donny van de Beek.
