Manchester United Will Learn From Young Boys Defeat – Ole
United appeared to be clinging to a point in Group F in Switzerland after Aaron Wan-Bissaka was sent off.
However, Jordan Siebatcheu scored the game-winning goal when Lingard, who had replaced Cristiano Ronaldo, made a terrible back pass.
“We’re human, and every footballer makes mistakes,” United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer remarked.
With his third goal in two games since re-signing from Juventus, Ronaldo had given United the perfect start against the Swiss champions.
However, right-back Wan-Bissaka received a straight red card for a lunging tackle on Christopher Martins just before halftime.
Moumi Ngamaleu equalized before Lingard’s injury-time blunder handed United their seventh Champions League defeat under Solskjaer.
“No footballer loves to make mistakes, but it’s obviously part and parcel of the game,” added Solskjaer, whose squad only managed two shots against a team that had to qualify for the group stage.
“We’ll benefit from it, and he’ll benefit from it as well. He’ll dust himself off and be ready to face West Ham on Sunday.”
