Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer believes a lack of experience was the reason for Aaron Wan-Bissaka getting a red card against Young Boys in the Champions League.

The Red Devils lost 2-1 to the Swiss outfit in their first group stage game, after going 1-0 up through Cristiano Ronaldo in the first half.

Wan-Bissaka was sent off in the 35th minute for a poor tackle on Christoper Martins, after he had miscontrolled a pass.

"I can understand why he gives it," Solskjaer said.

"Aaron takes a touch that goes too far, it's never a dangerous tackle because he hits him in the front of his foot.

"We saw with Harvey Elliott you sometimes can see bad injuries [but] it was never reckless or malicious.

"Maybe inexperience to go through without the ball but the boy wasn't going to be injured. And it makes it difficult after that with 10 men.

"Aaron's normally a very, very astute tackler, one of the best in the world."
