Dimitar Berbatov believes those who think Man Utd interim boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been “found out” after one bad result are “talking sh*t”.
The Norwegian has led United to 10 wins, a draw and one defeat in his first 12 matches in charge at Old Trafford after he replaced Jose Mourinho on a caretaker basis.
His first defeat came on Tuesday night when the Red Devils were comfortably beaten 2-0 by PSG in the first leg of their Champions League last-16 clash at Old Trafford.
And speaking to Betfair, Berbatov said: “Paris Saint-Germain are a great team and deserved to win on the night but I didn’t think United were that bad and some of the comments about Ole Gunnar Solskjaer ‘being found out’ were ridiculous.
“He has got them into the top four – something no-one thought was possible this season – but they lose one game to a team full of superstars and people start talking sh*t again.
“It’s the way of the world these days but everyone who understands football knows what a good job Ole has done.
“The big difference on Tuesday was the first goal – even the best and most creative teams have to rely on set pieces sometimes – which gave PSG the confidence to play, and control the game.
“The injuries to Jesse Lingard and Anthony Martial obviously played a major role as United lost their pace and directness up front.
“It’s often hard for subs to integrate themselves into these type of games quickly, and PSG made it as hard as possible for Alexis Sanchez and Juan Mata to settle.”
United are back in action again on Monday night when they face Chelsea in the FA Cup 5th round at Stamford Bridge.
