Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has told his Manchester United players to make sure they regroup during the international break after their surprise loss to Wolves in the FA Cup on Saturday night.

The Red Devils slipped to a 2-1 loss to Wolves at Molineux as they missed their chance to reach the FA Cup semi-finals.

It made it back to back defeats for Solskjaer’s side, who slumped to a 2-0 loss to Arsenal in the Premier League last weekend.

Manchester United will now not return to action until after the international break, when they take on Watford at Old Trafford in the Premier League on Saturday 30 March.

And Solskjaer feels that the international break could be a good way for his players to clear their minds after their disappointing defeats.

Asked to send a message to his players after the defeat, Solskjaer told his post-match news conference on Saturday: “[The international break] is happening so we can’t do anything about it.

“The players who go away with international teams, go and enjoy it, go and play as well as you can. Some of them are called back into a squad, maybe that will give them a boost.

“We just need to come back recharged. Whether you have days off or you play with your national team, come back with a big smile, loads of energy and be ready for the league and Champions League.

“We’re in a great position in the league, we’ve got the Champions League but we’re very disappointed tonight we’re not in the semis.”

Manchester United will take on FC Barcelona in the Champions League quarter-finals next month after being pitted against the La Liga leaders in the last eight.

The Red Devils came from behind to claim an impressive 3-1 win over PSG to secure their spot in the last eight of Europe’s elite club competition.
