Man Utd coach Solskjaer questions Romeu red-card: I'd be out for a month!

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer thinks Oriol Romeu was lucky to escape a red-card in Monday's 2-2 draw at Old Trafford.

The Southampton midfielder caught Mason Greenwood with an ugly challenge, with VAR taking no action after the incident.

"I don't think anyone would have been surprised if there had been a different outcome," said Solskjaer. "I mentioned it to the fourth official.

"My ankle would be gone and I'd be out for a month. But he (Greenwood) has got strong ankles and it's up to the referees to make the decision.

"It was a nasty one but we've said enough about VAR."
