Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has confessed that change is needed at the club if the Red Devils want to return to where they belong.

The Red Devils have fallen in recent times from their position as the giant of both English football and European football.

Their fall from grace to grass was further illustrated in the Carabao Cup on Wednesday night after they needed penalties to beat League One team Rochdale in their third round meeting at Old Trafford.

Manchester United were unable to beat the third tier team at home after the two sides shared a 1-1 draw at the end of regulation time thus paving the way for the dreaded penalty shootout.

Solskjaer and his Manchester United players were fortunate not to concede in the first half against Rochdale after summer signing Aaron Wan-Bissaka made a goalline clearance.

Manchester United took the lead in the second half through young striker Mason Greenwood who has now scored two goals in as many games.

The goal from the 17-year-old Manchester United attacker came shortly after the midpoint of the second half.

Rochdale equalized through 16-year-od defender Luke Matheson eight minutes later to force the dreaded penalty shootout which the hosts won 5-3 to progress into the fourth round.

After the game, Solskjaer told reporters that change must be made in some areas at Manchester United.
