Ruud Gullit bashes Solskjaer for ‘mistake’ against Barcelona

first_imgAdvertisementRuud Gullit believes that Manchester United manager made a ‘huge mistake’ in their Champions League clash against Barcelona. He said that United left it until it was too late to attack in their two legged-tie.Lionel Messi’s early brace made it 3-0 on aggregate, which essentially ended the tie. Philippe Coutinho scored a late stunner, as Barcelona progressed to the semi-finals. United were knocked out, and Gullit though that it was due to their attitude in the first leg.“Manchester United made a mistake I think, tactically,” Gullit told beIN SPORTS after United’s loss. “I can understand when you play at home that you want to score goals and be more adventurous and they decided not to do it in the first leg. They succeeded half because of the own goal – Messi had no shots on target but then you go to the Nou Camp and all of a sudden you want to attack.”“I don’t understand it because you’re not going to win in it then. Eventually, on a pitch like that it’s difficult to play like that. ‘You can ask Liverpool or Chelsea who have done it… you can ask Atletico Madrid who have done it. ‘You’re not going to attack there and they did… and I think it was a huge mistake.”Barcelona will now face Liverpool in the Champions League semi-final.Advertisementlast_img
