Solskjaer: Fred’s red card for Manchester United was not a foul

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, manager of Manchester United, felt Fred’s tackle that saw him sent off was “nowhere near a foul” but said the midfielder might have been lucky before.

The decision that saw the midfielder sent off was regretted by Solskjaer, although he admitted he may have been fortunate before.

In the second half of United’s 3-1 Champions League loss at home to Paris Saint-Germain on Wednesday, Fred was sent off.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said the tackle that led to Fred’s red card for Manchester United was not a foul.

“We spoke to him at half-time – and be sensible – and I thought he was. I thought he played really well,” he told a news conference.

“I thought he was very, very sensible in the second half and he covers the ground, he gets up to men without trying to tackle. The ball that he actually gets a yellow card for though, the tackle, that’s nowhere near a foul. So, if you see that again, that’s a mistake by the referee.”

“But that’s also a human error, it’s allowed. You can’t, I can’t sit there and complain about that now. I thought Fred was unlucky there, but he was probably lucky enough to come off for the first half.”
