Cristiano Ronaldo has urged his Manchester United teammates to ‘recover well and focus on the next game’ after they suffered a dramatic defeat to Young Boys in the Champions League.

The five-time Ballon d’Or winner posted on social media: ‘Wasn’t the result we wanted, but now it’s time to recover well and focus on the next game!’

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, meanwhile, said: ‘That is football for you at the highest level. A lack of concentration, make a mistake and you get punished.

‘We did that last year in Europe, we conceded two sloppy counter attacks against Basaksehir.

‘Today in the last seconds Jesse [Lingard] wants to play it safe and one misplaced pass and you concede a goal. If Jesse gets that chance again he would swivel and clear it but we will learn from it.’
