Wolves produced a hugely impressive display in both halves at a rocking Molineux, reaching the last four of the FA Cup for the first time since 1998 with second-half strikes from Raul Jimenez and Diogo Jota. "We will respect everybody in the semi-finals".
"Sometimes worldwide breaks come in handy and we would have loved to play it again and put it right".
"That was the poorest performance we have had since I've been here", Solskjaer said.
"It is a deserved result, we were outstanding", Wolves captain Conor Coady added.
"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".
Solskjaer went on to admit he had ripped into his players in the dressing room as he insisted his players had to bounce back after the upcoming worldwide break.
"Then we will be ready to push again because we're in a great position in the league, we're in the Champions League, but I'm very disappointing that we're not in the FA Cup semis".
"Sometimes when you say "on the break" people take it as "oh, they're going to sit on top of the ball" but no, that's not what they do". "The FA Cup is the oldest competition there is". To try to achieve the same is much, much harder now but we will try step by step.
"So, to give them back this joy and seeing our fans going out of the stadium with a smile - with a lot of beer, of course -feels good". We didn't have the urgency or quality on the ball, the tempo wasn't high enough and we played into their hands.
"If they hadn't had [David] De Gea behind, then they certainly wouldn't have won as many games as they have".
