Manchester United manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer expressed fears over Romeu’s rough tackle which could possibly cause Mason Greenwood miss the rest of the season on injury.

Ole Solskjaer is no where near happiness over Southampton defender’s hard tackle on favorite boy, Mason Greenwood amid the Red Devils 2-2 draw at Old Trafford yesterday.

The Norwegian feared he would have had Mason Greenwood sidelined for the rest of the season after a “nasty” tackle from Oriol Romeu.

Without any severe reaction from the referee, Ole expected the act to have warranted for a Red card, as he also had went over to the linesman to help beckon on Chris Kavanagh to come look at the pitch-side monitor.

“My ankle would be gone and I would be out for a month,” said Solskjaer. “He’s got strong ankles. I don’t think anyone would have been surprised if there was a different outcome. I mentioned it to the fourth official, subtly. It was a nasty one.”

Further complaints also came from former Manchester United player, Gary Neville who now works as a Skysports pundit as he believes the Southampton back-man intentionally went for Greenwood’s feet but the referee failed to take a serious action against the visitors.

“He’s tried to do him there. The ball is gone. They can be leg-breakers, those ones,” said Neville.

Southampton managed to leave Old Trafford with one point after a late equaliser from Micheal Obafemi during the 96th minute.

The Saints managed to cope with the pressure after conceding double in 3 minutes during the first 45 minutes after taking an early lead.

“We defended well until that corner so it is always disappointing to get that in the 96th minute. I know the feeling the other way as well,” Ole said.

“It’s the worst time to concede a goal but that happens in football, you just have to be strong and take it because we won so many games ourselves that way. It’s all part of the learning of this team to be sat there really disappointed after you think you have the three points in the bag but we didn’t deserve three points.” he added.

Meanwhile, united defender, Luke Shaw will go through a scan after going off over a probable ankle injury.
