Manchester United are going through yet another complicated season, as they started the year with the left foot with more subpar performances and injuries.
The Red Devils haven’t been the same team they were when Ole Gunnar Solskjaer first took charge following Jose Mourinho’s sacking, and it doesn’t think like their current roster is good enough to get the job done.
However, the Norweigan boss hinted at a very quiet transfer window in January, so Manchester United fans shouldn’t get their hopes high about new talents making their way to Old Trafford.
“The priority now is to get the players fit and get to the next round (of the UEFA Europa League). We always look at the long term with transfers, it might be none, might be one, might be two in January. It’s always the summer. you can’t really do too many big deals in January,” Solskjaer told the media ahead of their UEL Clash vs. Partizan Beograd, as quoted by Metro.
Solskjaer backed his young players again even though they’ve underperformed for most of the season, stating that he’ll continue to give them a chance to prove their worth and develop:
“We’ve seen some young players getting a chance and doing well. Mason’s (Greenwood) given us a winner, Brandon (Williams) was fantastic in Belgrade, Jimmy (Garner) came through that game really well. We have given other players a chance to play which is important in the long run. For me, it’s been good to give the young kids a chance. Good to see young players play games and we’ve kept three clean sheets and that’s impressive,” he concluded.
Manchester United look to be building ahead for the future, but their fans are running out of patience as the team hasn’t been able to compete at the highest of levels in years.
