Ole Gunnar Solskjaer adamant Tottenham thrashing is his lowest moment at Man United and blasts Erik Lamela for Anthony Martial red card
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer insists Manchester United’s 6-1 defeat to Tottenham is his LOWEST moment at the club.
The Red Devils were 4-1 down at half-time thanks to goals from Heung-min Son (2), Harry Kane and Tanguy Ndombele.
Tottenham did not let up in the second-half as Serge Aurier got in on the act before Kane completed the rout from the penalty spot.
Solskjaer, who made 367 appearances as a United player, said: “It’s just a horrible feeling.
“It’s the worst day I’ve had as a Man United manager and player. I’ve been part of big defeats before and we’ve bounced back.
“So we’ve just got to let the boys, who go away on international duty, try to find their mojo themselves and the others who stay here, we’ve got to help them because after a result like this you need to clear your mind, clear your head, and look forward.”
At 2-1 down, Anthony Martial was shown a red card for raising his arms at Erik Lamela, who appeared to hit him seconds before.
The Spurs forward fell to the ground, clutching his face, which led to Martial’s premature departure.
Solskjaer slammed Lamela’s actions and insisted if his son did that, ‘I’d put him in the attic for two weeks without food’
He added: “This is a very two-edged sword for me because, Anthony, well done for not going down when the lad struck you in the throat.

“And then you shouldn’t react to it with a slap on his throat, not even in his face. If you do that, there’s always a chance they’re going to send you off.
“But come on, come on. If that was my son, I’d put him in the attic for two weeks without food.
“You don’t go down like that. It’s an absolute joke.”
