Ole Gunnar Solskjaer admitted Manchester United produced the poorest performance of his reign as Wolves sent them crashing out of the FA Cup on Saturday with a 2-1 quarterfinal win.
But United's interim manager was remarkably upbeat despite his side's flat performance, saying they had plenty more to fight for as they aim for a top-four finish in the Premier League and look towards a Champions League last-eight tie against Barcelona.
United were well beaten by an eager Wolves side who scored two goals in six second-half minutes through Raul Jimenez and Diogo Jota, with Marcus Rashford's injury-time effort a consolation.
"Today was the poorest performance we've had since I've been here," said Solskjaer. "It was a big step backwards. There was a lack of urgency going forwards and a lack of forward passing and a lack of regains.
But Solskjaer delivered a positive message to fans.
"We're in a great position in the league, we've got the Champions League," he said.
"You can't sulk for too long. We've got so much to play for. Man United in April and May always find their form. We can't wait for the challenge when Barcelona come."
