Ole Gunnar Solskjaer names Man United star to be blamed for AC Milan equaliser

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer suggests who should be blame for AC Milan equaliser

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has suggested that Dean Henderson was at fault for AC Milan equaliser after claiming the goalkeeper should have saved the header.

Man United played out a 1-1 draw with Milan at Old Trafford on Thursday night in the Europa League round of 16 first leg.

Amad Diallo, who replaced injured Anthony Martial at half-time, opened the scoring with a big header, thanks to Bruno Fernandes for telegraphing the second-half substitute.

The Red Devils had two decent chances to kill the game off and eventually put a huge foot into the Europa League quarter-final ahead of the return leg but Daniel James and Harry Maguire missed both chances.

The pair needed to hit the ball perfectly into an empty post but their efforts were dreadful.

When teams failed to utilise their chances, most times, they backfired and Man United witnessed it yet again after AC Milna got the equaliser in the last minute of the game.

Simon Kjaer scored the equaliser with a fine header and the AC Milan defender’s effort was directed towards where Dean Henderson was standing but the Manchester United second-choice goalkeeper punched the ball but his punching wasn’t strong enough to clear the header off.

Solskjaer has also pinpointed the defending that allowed the Milan defender to get an effort on goal, but did question his goalkeeper.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer told BT Sport: “Its a header from six yards. He [Dean Henderson] can save it of course, I’ve seen him save them.

“But it is the structure that we lose. We drop deep and we get blocked off and Kjaer makes a good run.

“We should’ve attacked the ball with the men we had.”
