Former Manchester United midfielder Paul Scholes has spoken about the difficulty Ole Gunnar Solskjaer experienced in the transfer window.
He revealed his concerns over the fact Solskjaer became the latest Red Devil’s coach to not have had his main transfer targets secured.
Scholes said: “I don’t think he’s the first one who hasn’t been backed. “There’s been a lot of money spent but has it been spent on the first choices these managers want? I’m not too sure.
“I think Louis van Gaal and Jose Mourinho especially had a moan about that and it’s understandable when they aren’t getting the players they want.
“I think Ole’s been supported. I think Maguire at £80m is a lot of money, Fernandes just in January has been an excellent signing and the form was good especially coming from Fernandes in January time, you felt that this team was going places.
“Towards the end of the season it’s a lot easier to win games, it’s a lot easier to go on a run when the pressure’s not really on.
“Okay you can talk about pressure to get in that top four but that’s not the pressure United want, United want to be winning leagues.
“You felt at the end of last season he would have got more support in the transfer market to go on again to that next level but he’s not been given that.“It’s quite clear the players he wanted have not come.”
