Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has responded to Jurgen Klopp’s comments on Manchester United’s penalty record.

Earlier this week Reds faced a 1 – 0 defeat to Southampton, and after the clash, Klopp revealed in his post-match interview that United had more penalties in two years than he had in five-and-a-half years at Anfield.

“I don’t count how many penalties they have, so if they want to spend time on worrying about when we get fouled in the box, I don’t spend time on that,” Solskjaer told reporters ahead of the League Cup semi-final with Manchester City.

The Red Devils manager also reminded the case when his side were denied a penalty in last season’s FA Cup semi-final defeat by Chelsea after manager Frank Lampard suggested the VAR had favoured United during the season.

“I can’t talk on behalf of other managers, why they say things like this,” Solskjaer added.

“Obviously I felt it worked last year in the semis in the FA Cup because Frank spoke about it and we had a nailed-on penalty we should have had that we didn’t get.

“So maybe it’s a way of influencing referees. I don’t know, but I don’t worry about that. When they foul our players it’s a penalty. It’s just when it’s inside the box.”
