And United manager Solskaer played at Old Trafford from 1996 to 2007 and has been a manager since 2018, said he had not suffered a worse day during his time at the club.

“It’s a horrible feeling, the worst day I have had as a Manchester United coach and player,” Solskjaer said. “You don’t win football games by making individual mistakes, mistakes, by doing such a performance.

“It is alarming, far from sufficient. I raise my hand. It’s my decision to pick the team and as a team it’s not good enough for Manchester United.

“When you have a loss like this, which has happened at the club before, you just have to look at yourself in the mirror. ”

United were already 2-1 behind when Martial was sent off by referee Anthony Taylor in the 29th minute for slapping Lamela while defending a corner kick.

Lamela’s reaction provoked Solskjaer’s ridicule.

“It’s like a two-edged sword to me,” Solskjaer said. “Anthony, well done for not coming down when the boy hit you in the throat, but you shouldn’t react like that with a slap in the throat.”

“If you do that there’s always a chance they’ll send you, but come on, if he was my son, I’d put him in the attic for two weeks without food.” You don’t go down like that, to It’s an absolute joke.

“If it was one of my players, I would absolutely hang him up to dry because you don’t come down like that. ”

United defender Luke Shaw has suggested he and his teammates retire after Martial’s red card.

“It was a lack of focus and then a mistake, another mistake, another mistake,” he said. “We turned off. It really hurts.

“Manchester United shouldn’t lose this way. It really hurts, it’s embarrassing and we let a lot of people down. We were disappointed with the staff. We have to look at ourselves in the mirror, we are nowhere. nearby at the moment. Maybe we’re lucky we have a break now.

“When we got down to 10 men, maybe we gave up, there wasn’t this character on the ground. We were too silent and naive. There were a lot of mistakes, we need to do more. ” It’s embarassing. I was embarrassed on the pitch. We need a long look at ourselves. ”

Meanwhile, Mourinho showed no sympathy to his former club over the red card, adding: “I didn’t watch him. Maybe later I will. If anyone can cry over VAR decisions it’s Tottenham and if anyone can’t cry VAR it’s Manchester United for sure.

“I don’t know, the only thing I know is that we played really well. I told my players that a good result here would be to win and we did it. “
