Ever since Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp question Manchester United ‘s number of penalties, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side have seen far fewer penalty shootouts in the league.
Throughout the previous several seasons, Manchester United under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team has been a team. That has been award penalties very often. Until contributing to the team’s victory in many matches. Which has cause both the coach. And the fans of other teams to show distrust at the decision of the referee many times. Klopp was one of them.
During the past January, he gave an interview after the team lost. Southampton 0-1: “I’ve heard that Manchester United have taken more penalties in the last two years than I’ve had in the five-and-a-half years at the club. I don’t know if it’s my fault or not. and not sure how it could be But that’s not an excuse for our form. We can’t change it. We must respect the judgment. But we can change our own form. That will be our focus now.”
Since then, Solskjaer has often made references to Klopp at times. Such as recently saying his team has won fewer penalties. Ever since the Premier League manager has questioned the number of penalties awarded to Manchester United.
However, although last season, Manchester United were the team that took the second most penalties in the Premier League with 11 (Leicester is the team with the most penalties with 12). But after c Klopp raised the issue. They have won just five more penalties in the 2020-21 season, while they haven’t taken any penalties in the league this season.
In addition, on average, United have averaged one penalty shoot-out in every 2.9 games in the league between 2018-20 (Solskjaer joined United in December last year). 2018), but since Klopp gave such an interview They have been reduced to just one penalty in every 5.4 games.
