Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has hinted that there are a few players in the squad who won’t be donning the Red shirt again next season.
The Red Devils gave another disappointing performance against “The Terriers” in their home ground and came away with a 1-1 draw against the side who are last on the table.
There are doubts over the futures of Paul Pogba, David De Gea, Ander Herrera and Romelu Lukaku with all the big stars tipped to leave the Old Trafford next season.
Ole, in his post-match press conference, was asked whether there are players in the squad who won’t be donning the jersey next season and here’s what the gaffer replied:
“I have to manage for the club, and manage the players, yes. You give people a chance, but sometimes, you’ve got to be ruthless and say: ‘Sorry but you had your chance.’
“‘I’m not afraid to do that.’”
The Norwegian was specifically asked whether Alexis Sanchez, who suffered an injury during the game, would still be a Manchester United player next season and the manager didn’t look very enthusiastic about it:
“Every performance has an impact on who you want to keep and let go, that’s simple,” he said.
“We’ll see how his injury is for now.”
Honestly, there are at least half a dozen players in this side who aren’t good enough to be in the squad, let alone in the first eleven.
What Manchester United need is a squad overhaul which will take at least a couple of transfer windows, if not more. Whether Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is the right man to look over that is another question altogether!
