Sir Alex Ferguson blamed for Man United’s Europa League final defeat

Sir Alex Ferguson has been blamed for Manchester United’s defeat in the Europa League final.

However, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men, having been held to a 1-1 draw over 120 minutes, eventually lost on penalties.

Solskjaer’s wait for a first major trophy continues, with Man United going another season without silverware.

    All are to blame, but mostly the manager and key players. A manager who only looks at the situation in the game from the monitor, (instead of looking at it before or after the game), instead of giving instructions at all times, who has no control of the game, perhaps out of insecurity, he can not be the manager of United.
