Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, the head coach of Manchester United, has spoken out about the importance of football referees.
After the ball struck the hand of midfielder Callum Hudson-Odoi in the first half of the 26th round of the EPL match against Chelsea (0-0), head referee Stuart Attwell chose not to give a penalty against the Londoners.
“You know, the way football works is that you simply move on to the next match. Situations like that are highly stressful, and we have to accept the decisions of the referees,” the coach told Sky Sports.
“We’re moving on. I was focused on the Crystal Palace game after the match, so I didn’t think about it at all. I agree that the work of a referee is stressful enough without the extra stress. We can only wish them the best of luck in making as many positive and right choices as they can.”
