Jimenez, Jota slay United as Wolves reach FA Cup semis

"Now is not the squeaky bum time like the gaffer [Sir Alex Ferguson] used to say but it tightens up and April and May and at Manchester United we narrow the focus and it's now about winning trophies, making use of the squad".

"It was a big step backwards, I've got to say", stated Solskjaer.

With their fans singing "We're on our way back", Wolves savoured another huge Cup victory after knocking out Liverpool in the third round and will now have a Wembley semi-final to add to their many highlights in a hugely impressive first season back in the Premier League.

Solskjaer continued: "Some of the players go away with the national teams and they'll enjoy the break". We know that we've played well against Arsenal last week and didn't get what we deserved.

Asked whether this defeat could harm his chances of becoming permanent manager, Solskjaer replied: "I'm here until the summer, we've got loads to play for in the league and the Champions League".

The Norwegian said his side have "got to go again" after the global break as they bid for a top-four finish in the Premier League and face Barcelona in the Champions League quarter-finals.

"Very disappointing tonight, though, that we're not in the semis".

Romelu Lukaku and Luke Shaw have already come out to publicly back Solskjaer and Carrick said that feeling is echoed by everyone at the club.

Man United suffered their first domestic defeat under Solskjaer last weekend when Man United were beaten 2-0 by Arsenal at the Emirates.

"But of course, you can't sit down and sulk too long".

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's Manchester United had their FA Cup hopes destroyed by Nuno Espirito Santo's Wolverhampton Wanderers.

"We've played so much worse and won games and that's the unusual thing when you're a manager".

Solskjaer is still talking a good game, but plenty rests on the next two months for him and United. "The atmosphere was fantastic".
