Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has said Dean Henderson should have saved AC Milan’s equaliser but feels the entire Manchester United team should take the blame for their poor display on Thursday.
A goal from Amad Diallo goal saw United take the lead as the game headed into stoppage time, but a late equaliser in the 93rd minute by Simon Kjaer saw the game end in a 1-1 draw.
And the Red devils goalkeeper Henderson should have saved the header by Kjaer that saw the Italian side secure the draw.
But, Solskjaer said he is disappointed with the team’s overall performance.
“Very disappointed to concede with one of the last kicks of the ball, or head. “That makes it harder of course, but it was always going to be going down to the second game there, anyway,” said the Norwegian.
“I’ve seen him [Henderson] save them, but it’s the structure that we lose. We dropped too deep and we got blocked off and they got the header on.
“We should have attacked the ball with the men we had there. We were a bit too slow with the possession.”
