Sergio Romero and Marcos Rojo were caught laughing during the injury time against Wolverhampton Wanderers.
Manchester United suffered their third defeat in the last four games under the management of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. The Red Devils went 2-1 down to Nuno Santo’s side after taking an early lead through their midfielder Scott McTominay in the 13th minute. However, that lead was erased by Diogo Jota and an own goal from Chris Smalling to turnaround things for the hosts.
It was Manchester United’s second defeat to the same team in the last two weeks, crashing out of the FA Cup before the International break and now losing their way en route to their top four finish this season. During the 94th minute, Sergio Romero and Marcos Rojo were snapped laughing on the bench when their side was trailing in the game.
The Red Devils faithful went mad when they were caught smiling inside the dugout. The fans did expect better from that Argentine duo..
Despite the defeat, Solskjaer has picked up plenty of positives and wants his side to keep going as the top four spot in up for grabs.
“It’s one of those days that we’ve done more than enough to score three or more goals. We’ve created some great chances, and [there were some] fantastic saves by the keeper. They scored with their first chance after the sending off, about 20-25 minutes after the sending off. So, the boys have done exactly what they’re meant to – but we conceded goals from sloppy mistakes and we didn’t score ourselves.”
“Of course, it’s three points [dropped] and we knew that we’d have to have 15 points probably to get to that position [fourth]. We’ve still got six games to get them 15 points. So we’ve just got to look forward and dust ourselves down, because [it was a] disappointing result, but a very good performance.” said Solskjaer.
