LONDON: Manchester United celebrated the new contract of its manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer by “gifting” the win to Queens Park Rangers.
Solskjaer saw his side stunned with three goals in eight minutes in a 4-2 defeat at the hands of QPR in a friendly.
Supporters of the Championship League club mocked United by singing ‘Can we play against you every week?’.
What can be a relief to United fans is that the players brought down by Solskjaer will not be in the starting line-up when the new Premier League season begins.
Fort United’s mess with Aaron Wan-Bissaka shows the reason why Solskjaer is interested in getting Kieran Trippier.
After scoring an early goal, they failed to break through QPR’s much better quality and sharp defense.
United opened the scoring through Jesse Lingard as early as the third minute but the hosts took just four minutes to equalize through Charlie Austin.
Half -time substitute Anthony Elanga had a chance to put United ahead but his effort was saved by QPR substitute goalkeeper Joe Walsh.
Lyndon Dykes punished United’s negligence by blasting home two goals in six minutes, and Mose Odubajo added a QPR goal two minutes later.
United closed the gap through Elanga in the 73rd minute.
