Being unable to sell half of the deadwood has left Ole in an awkward position.
A United fan on Reddit vented his frustrations on having such a big squad with little quality and called for big changes immediately.
He wrote: “Realistically along with Jones, Rojo and Romero, Lingard, both Pereiras and Mata should definitely be gone, Fosu-Mensah should have his last chance this season, same with James given that Pellistri and Diallo seem more promising, and with Tuanzebe since even though he's promising as hell, a perpetually injured player isn't a good player to have.
“So if all this happens which is obviously unlikely, with Chong and Dalot returning we'd go into next season with a squad of 20 players that should be at the club which gives us room for some really top players, which is also unlikely to happen for obvious reasons.
“The club really needs to get the squad in order because right now there are far too many players you look at and think that they're absolutely stealing a living or just should be somewhere else.”
You can’t help but agree with these points! United need to clear all the deadwood from the squad as soon as possible and bring in better alternatives if our squad is to compete on all fronts anytime soon.
