Manchester United is out of the race for the FA Cup, after a humiliating defeat to Leicester City. But United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer doesn’t want to stick with the loss and “keep going” for the upcoming games.
The Red Devils had a hard time against the Foxes on Sunday, March 21, at the King Power Stadium. Kelechi Iheanacho from Leicester was the first to bury a ball into the back of the net, followed by Mason Greenwood equalizing the score for the United. But the tie didn’t last long as Leicester forwards Iheanacho and Youri Tielemans took the lead again with two goals.
The match concluded in favor of Leicester City and they will face Southampton in the semi-finals of the FA Cup on Saturday, April 17.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wants his squad to keep moving
Manchester United boss mentioned his disappointment of not playing the finals in the Wembley Stadium but also advised his squad to move on from a lost match. Thus, the Red Devils now need to focus on their upcoming matches in UEFA Europa League and Premier League.
Solskjaer reported after the 3-1 defeat to Leicester, “We’ve got the Europa League and Premier League to concentrate on — yes, we would’ve liked to go to Wembley, but now all the focus is on the games we do have.
“We’re in a good position in the league and we want to keep improving, of course, Leicester is just behind us so it won’t be easy but we want to keep going and get as far as possible in the Europa as well.”
Solskjaer’s squad is enjoying a secure position in both Europa and EPL. The Red Devils will face Granada in Europa League quarterfinals on Friday, April 9 at Nuevo Estadio de Los Cármenes.
The Red Devils are ranking second to their Manchester derby rivals, Man City, on the EPL table with 57 points. The Old Trafford squad will next face Brighton on April 9 to move forward in Premier League.
The boss is looking ahead to getting the boys back fresh and hungry after the international break.
