Solskjaer fires back at Lampard ahead of FA Cup semi-final

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has responded back at Frank Lampard over claims that Manchester United have been lucky with VAR decisions.

Frank Lampard admitted that he had concerns that United are getting a run of VAR decisions in their favour.

The Red Devils have been awarded 13 spot-kicks this season equaling the record for the number awarded in a Premier League season.

Solskjaer said, “I can sit here for hours now and try to talk about this.” 

“It looks like there’s a narrative, it looks like people want to influence whoever’s making the decisions. I hear people talking about luck, that we’ve been lucky more than unlucky. 

“If you look at the factual decisions, I don’t want to sound like a certain manager talking about facts, but if you’re offside, you’re offside. That’s clear. Talking about lucky, the penalty we got against Tottenham in the last minute that was taken away from us, that might be two points for us.

“Talking about the red card Romeu should have had against us when he almost got Mason Greenwood crippled, that should’ve been a red card, maybe that would’ve helped us. 

“Talking about Mark Noble when he should have been sent off against us when we lost at West Ham, talking about the actual decision that is made that is against Man Utd but is overturned and corrected.

“So it’s actually me that should be complaining that we get decisions against us on the pitch by the on-pitch referee.”

“There’s a narrative there but we have to focus on our games. We let other people talk about that, I don’t want to go too much into it because I might be in trouble,” Solskjaer said. 

“I hope I’m not now! I’m pretty relaxed on these and refs are going to be making objective decisions and are not going to be influenced by any emotion in any way, so I don’t think they’ll read [what Lampard said].”
