Manchester United boss Solskjaer hit back Klopp with 'Rafa-fact response' after penalty comment

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has scoffed at claims from Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp over penalty bias.

Klopp claimed United have received more penalties in two years than he has seen at Liverpool in his over five years in charge.

United boss Solskjaer hit back: “And that's a fact, probably. That is going to be my answer.

“It's a fact that we have got more than him."

It was a cheeky reference to Rafa Benitez's 2009 press conference rant at Sir Alex Ferguson — when he kept saying 'fact' to back up his statements.

Solskjaer, who is level on points with Klopp at the top of the Premier League, wonders why he and other managers have an obsession with United's penalty awards.

He said: “I don't count how many penalties they have. So if they want to spend time worrying about when we get fouled in the box, I don't spend time on that."
