Champions League: Solskjaer explains why Fred wasn’t taken off before Red Card against PSG

Champions League: Solskjaer explains why Fred wasn’t taken off before Red Card against PSG (Updated: 2 years ago)


Manchester United manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, has admitted he considered taking Fred off at half-time, during their 3-1 defeat to Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League on Wednesday night.

Fred was eventually shown a second yellow card in the 70th minute.

The Brazil midfielder picked up his first yellow card in the 23rd minute, with many thinking he should have been sent off for a headbutt on Paredes.

That second booking eventually came after Fred’s foul on Ander Herrera.

At the time, United were down 2-1 with Marquinhos scoring the winning goal just one minute prior to Fred’s dismissal.

Following the loss, Soslkajer revealed he told the midfielder that it was imperative that he keeps his head in the second half.

“Yeah [I considered it]. Fred has played really well. We spoke about staying calm and on your feet. The second yellow card was nowhere near a foul. Ander knows that,” Solskjaer told BT Sport.

He added: “Fred shouldn’t put his head towards him [for the first yellow]. I don’t think he touched him. He was a bit lucky to stay on.”
