Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has stated that the club will not make panic signings despite the current poor run in the English Premier League.
United have struggled to score goals this season largely due to lack of forwards due to the departure of Romelu Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez to Inter Milan. Marcus Rashford has been inconsistent while Anthony Martial has been out for the better part of the season with injuries.
Ole’s job is on the line with a number of coaches like Max Allegri linked with his job. The tactician has however remained defiant stating that he will turn the team’s fortunes around.
Asked whether he will make signings during the winter window, the Norwegian refused to commit stating that the team will make any panic buys. He, however, admitted that the team needs a bit of creativity which he believes is available within the squad.
“To win games you need to score goals and I’m sure Anthony and Marcus are going to get their share of goals. Anthony’s just gonna improve but we need more creativity. But we’ve got loads of players here in the squad who could create more, it’s not just looking outside, we have to do with what we have,” he said.
He added the team will only make additions if they find the right players.
“We’re looking for some creativity and goals, but they [potential signings] have to be the right one. ‘There were strikers available [in the summer] but not the ones we wanted. We couldn’t get the one we wanted,” he added.
