No Solskjaer blame game
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has refused to blame his Manchester United bosses for failing to strengthen his squad.
United have come under fire from the likes of Patrice Evra, Gary Neville, Rio Ferdinand and Darren Fletcher after failing to spend big in the summer transfer window.
Towards the end of last season Solskjaer claimed United could “exploit” a transfer market affected by the Covid-19 crisis, due to his club’s huge wealth and spending power.
The boss said: “I think my wording in lockdown ‘exploit’ was a bad word by me.
“I didn’t mean it in that respect, I meant clubs out there have to move because of the situation and it might be a situation for us.
“We’ve lost loads of money like the other clubs have as well. And when I talk about the squad depth, of course the performances didn’t warrant me giving more of them more options. The 11, 12, 13 players deserved to play.
“We have players to get results. Pat, Rio, Gary and Fletch have always been welcome here to talk to me instead of doing their jobs. We’re all wanting Manchester United as high as possible, it’s my job and that’s what I’m working with. We have great players.”
