OLE GUNNAR SOLSKJAER is convinced that Manchester United’s penalty count has dried up since Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp complained about the number they were awarded last season.
Klopp claimed in early January that United had won more spot-kick decisions in two years than his team had during his more than five years at Anfield.
United boss Solskjaer saw Cristiano Ronaldo have strong appeals waved away during last weekend’s 2-1 Premier League victory at West Ham and another fall on deaf ears when the sides met once again in the League Cup in midweek.
Asked if Ronaldo might have an issue with referees, Solskjaer said: “We just have to hope that we get what we deserve. I believe we should have had three penalties in the last two games.
“I don’t know, but there was a certain manager last year who was starting to worry about us getting penalties and after that, it seems like the decisions are more difficult to give. Surely I’ve seen a big, big difference since then on.
“But we just have to leave it up to the refs and hope that they will make the right calls very soon.”
