Solskjaer Questions Need For United To Sign ‘Superstar’ Players In Bid To Become Premier League Challengers

Manchester United interim manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer believes the club should move away from making headline summer signings.

The club have generally splashed the cash in their bid to become Premier League challengers once again.

However, Solskjaer thinks that the focus should be on coaching and improving the players already at the club:

“I think it is about who we’ve got here as well. If every single player can improve by one or two per cent. It is not about X amount of players.

“It has to be the right one and one who fits, the personality has to fit with the team, it is not just buy a superstar and that will fix things and suddenly we go from challenging to being top four and be champions.”


Over the past few years, the Manchester club have broken their transfer record a number of times with the ambition of bringing the league title back to Old Trafford.

The likes of Paul Pogba, Romelu Lukaku and Fred have all been brought in for expensive fees to get the side challenging at the top of the table.

It seems Solskjaer believes a more considered approach is necessary, and that keeping a young squad together and developing their talent is the best way forward.

Whether the Norwegian’s thoughts on the matter will be taken on board by the United hierarchy, we shall have to wait and see.
