Photo: IC Ole Gunnar Solskjaer on Tuesday hit back at Jurgen Klopps jibes about Manchester Uniteds penalty record as the Old Trafford boss claimed Premier League managers are trying to influence referees.Liverpool boss Klopp highlighted the large number of penalties given to United since Solskjaer took charge in a rant that followed the champions not getting a spot kick in Mondays defeat at Southampton.Klopp claimed United have had more spot kicks in two years under Solskjaer than Liverpool have in his entire 5.5-year reign.United have been awarded six league penalties this season compared to the five won by Klopps men.They have been given 42 in all competitions since Solskjaer took over in December 2018 compared to Liverpools 19 in the same period.Liverpool have had 46 penalties since Klopp arrived on Merseyside in 2015.Klopps comments touched a nerve with Solskjaer, whose second-placed team are due to play leaders Liverpool in a crucial clash in the Premier League title race on January 17.When Klopps remarks were put to Solskjaer ahead of Uniteds League Cup semifinal against Manchester City on Wednesday, he said, “And thats a fact, probably…”Thats probably going to be my answer, thats a fact that weve got more than them.”I dont know how many penalties theyve had. I dont count how many penalties they have.”So, if they want to spend time on worrying about when we get fouled in the box then I dont spend time on that.”Solskjaers use of the word “facts” recalled former Liverpool boss Rafael Benitezs infamous rant at then United manager Alex Ferguson in 2009.But Solskjaer was just as frustrated with the comments of other Premier League bosses, after both Tottenhams Jose Mourinho and Chelseas Frank Lampard referenced Uniteds good fortune with penalties.Solskjaer believes United pointed to last seasons FA Cup semifinal defeat against Chelsea, suggesting Lampard had an impact on decisions in that game when Kurt Zoumas challenge on Anthony Martial was not deemed worthy of a spot kick.”I cant talk on behalf of other managers, why they say things like this,” Solskjaer said.”Obviously I felt it worked last year in the semi in the FA Cup because Frank spoke about it and we had a nailed-on penalty that we should have had that we didnt get, so maybe its a way of influencing referees. I dont know.”But I dont worry about that. You know when they foul our players I think it is a penalty, its just when its inside the box.”load_file(“/includes-n/article_share.html”);RELATED ARTICLES Man Utd bow outManchester United were knocked out of the Champions League after a 3-2 defeat by RB Leipzig on Tuesday, … Man Utd storm backManchester United roared back to beat West Ham 3-1 on Saturday, while Chelsea moved top of the Premier … Man Utd stunned by PalaceManchester United suffered a miserable start to their Premier League campaign as Wilfried Zaha fired Crystal Palace to …load_file(“/includes-n/article_most_view.html”);var wxs = (function() {return navigator.userAgent.toLowerCase().indexOf(micromessenger) !== -1})();if (!wxs) {/* * * CONFIGURATION VARIABLES: EDIT BEFORE PASTING INTO YOUR WEBPAGE * * */var disqus_shortname = globaltimes; // required: replace example with your forum shortnamevar disqus_identifier = 1211973;/* * * DONT EDIT BELOW THIS LINE * * */(function () {var dsq = document.createElement(script); dsq.type = text/javascript; dsq.async = true;dsq.src = https:// + disqus_shortname + .disqus.com/embed.js;(document.getElementsByTagName(head)[0] || document.getElementsByTagName(body)[0]).appendChild(dsq);})();}Please enable JavaScript to view the comments powered by Disqus.blog comments powered by Disqusload_file(“/includes-n/footer.html”);load_file(“/includes-n/addthis.html”);
