Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer insists the club need “quality” signings to help his mentally fatigued young squad after losing to Burnley.
The Clarets recorded their first win at the Old Trafford in 58 years following a 2-0 victory on Wednesday night.
Solskjaer is currently without key players Paul Pogba and Marcus Rashford through injury and is hopeful of strengthening his squad before the January window shuts.
Solskjaer said: “I’m responsible for what is happening on the pitch, we’re looking to strengthen, we need to strengthen. We know that.
“We took the decision to let some players go as we needed to start afresh with a clear sight on the target in front of us which is a certain type of player. We know we need to get quality in and numbers in.
He added: “We are working to improve and get players in. Hopefully, we can get something over the line. These players are stretched, and I’ve got no complaints on any of them – they give everything they’ve got.
“We’ve got to stick to our values, stick to our beliefs. And knowing that there is no use feeling sorry for yourself. Go out tomorrow, the next day with the same commitment and get ready for Sunday. We are stretched. Some of the players have played more than they should’ve – more mentally rather than psychically, they need a mid-season break.”Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
