Solskjaer defends self as summer transfer decision hunts him


Man United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has always come under criticism for a decision he made in the last summer transfer window to let go of Belgium international Romelu Lukaku and Chile international Alexis Sanchez on loan. Both players now ply their trade with Italian Serie A outfit Inter Milan.

While Romelu Lukau has been in hot form for the Serie A giants, Alexis Sanchez has struggled to perform at the club and it is unlikely he would be extending his stay at the San Siro.

When the question was asked again to manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, he made it clear that his decision to let go of the two players was not a mistake and he is proud of it.

According to him, the decision was made in the best interest of the team and the club so as to get results on the pitch. He stressed the need to give younger players the opportunity to showcase their talent as well as build their trust. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer boasted that he will make the same decision again if times are brought back.

However, it is rumoured that Man United will part ways with Alexis Sanchez on a permanent basis because he would no longer be needed at the club.
