Europa League: Slavia Prague player banned for 10 matches ahead of Arsenal second leg


Manchester United manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, has suggested the red wrap on the seats at Old Trafford, could have contributed to their inconsistent home form.

According to him, the players were unable to pick each other out during games.

United have won 27 points at Old Trafford this season, losing four times and drawing three.

However, on the road, they have picked up 36 points and are unbeaten in 23 Premier League games.

The Red Devils face Granada in their Europa League quarter-final second leg on Thursday, looking for a first knockout round home win in this season’s competition.

Solskjaer feels the team are now at an advantage because the banners around the seats have changed.

“You’ll see a change now, if you see the banners around the club, it’s not red anymore.

“We’ve looked into this, there shouldn’t be a reason, really. But some of the payers have mentioned that split-second decision you have to make where you look over your shoulder to see if your team-mate is there or not and the red shirt is on a red background with red seats.

“So, we’ve tried to change that, along with the anti-racism campaign, that was important that it wasn’t red anymore,” Solskjaer said.
