Solskjaer reveals how Klopp, Lampard are trying to influence referees

Manchester United manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, has accused rival managers of trying to influence referees, after Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp referenced the Red Devils’ penalty record.

Following his side’s 1-0 defeat to Southampton, Klopp said Liverpool should have been awarded two spot kicks and hinted that United may have been more likely to get the decisions.

Klopp is the latest manager, after Tottenham Hotspurs’ Jose Mourinho and Chelsea’s Frank Lampard, to talk about the number of penalties awarded to Ole Gunnar Solskjaaer’s team.

“I can’t talk on behalf of other managers, why they say things like this,” Solskjaer told a news conference on Monday.

“I felt it worked last year in the semi in the FA Cup because Frank [Lampard] spoke about it and we had a nailed on penalty that we should have had that we didn’t get so maybe it’s a way of influencing referees.

“I don’t know, but I don’t worry about that. When they foul our players it’s a penalty.”

The stats show that since Solskjaer arrived at Old Trafford in December 2018, United have been given 42 penalties in all competitions compared to Liverpool’s 19.
