MANCHESTER UNITED fans have been left in hysterics after manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer furiously through a water bottle on the floor when his side gave away a last minute penalty.
The ball struck Luke Shaw’s arm as West Ham were given the chance to equalise from the spot in stoppage time at the London Stadium on Sunday.
Solskjaer was furious when the penalty was awarded
The Man Utd manager lost his head and threw a water bottle in anger
And the decision – which was made after referee Martin Atkinson went to look at the monitor – left Solskjaer raging.
The Norwegian, who is almost always calm and collected, angrily chucked his water bottle to the ground in a fit of rage.
However, his anger would be short lived as David de Gea went on to save the penalty from Mark Noble and Man Utd dramatically claimed all three points.
But Solskjaer’s moment of madness on the touchline got United fans talking on social media, with one supporter comparing it to a similar incident involving his predecessor Jose Mourinho.
The Portuguese coach threw a rack of water bottles on the floor after witnessing a late Marouane Fellaini winner during his time as manager.
And following Solskjaer’s outburst, one supporter said: “Thinking about the time Marouane Fellaini scored an injury time winner to put us through to the last 16 of UCL that prompted Mourinho to dash bottles onto the floor.”
Another added: “Seeing Ole Gunnar Solskjaer throw a water bottle down in pure anger when West Ham gets the penalty is everything.”
While a third said: “Not sure if it was spotted on TV (sorry if so) but Solskjaer (think it was him!) very dramatically threw a water bottle into the ground when penalty given.
“Then running onto pitch to hug his goalie two mins later. Crazy little sport we follow.”
Mocking Solskjaer, another fan said: “Like watching an innocent teddy bear losing his s**t. You don’t get to see it but when you do, it’s lovely to see.”
United’s victory at West Ham means they now sit level on points with table toppers Chelsea and Liverpool.
Next up for Solskjaer’s side is another clash with the Hammers, this time in the Carabao Cup on Wednesday.
