Michael Owen Criticises Ole Gunnar Solskjaer tactics after goalless draw against Leeds United



Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

Former Manchester United Forward Michael Owen has slammed Ole Gunnar Solskjaer for his “negative” tactics after the Red Devils’ 0-0 draw with Leeds United at Elland Road.

Solskjaer’s side defeated their rivals 6-2 in a fascinating encounter in early December, but it was a game of few chances in Yorkshire.

The result means United have now recorded their seventh 0-0 draw of the season, more than any other Premier League team.

Owen believes Solskjaer’s ‘negative’ move of playing Fred and Scott McTominay together in midfield contributed to the bore draw at Elland Road.

“I was disappointed with the team that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer picked,’ Owen told Premier League Productions.

“I thought it was quite a negative team. You’re going to a team that you’ve already beaten 6-2 in the Premier League, you don’t really need two sitting midfielders.

“I thought it was a negative statement to start with.”

with one eye on Thursday Europa League semifinal against Roma, Solskjaer opted to start Paul Pogba and Edinson Cavani on the bench, with the pair entering the fray with around 20 minutes left.
