Gary Neville criticizes Solskjaer for Manchester United's lack of options

Former Manchester United player Gary Neville has urged Ole Gunnar Solskjaer need to have some experience to work with Manchester United squad. The United boss has replaced Juan Mata with 19-year-old Angel Gomes during the game against West Ham, which ended with the Red Devil’s loss (1 - 0). Speaking about Solskjaer's squad to Sky Sports, Neville said: “Now Juan Mata is off and Angel Gomes is on. A young boy out of the academy – which is fantastic, but that is a depleted team and squad. There's no-one who likes academy players playing for Manchester United more than me, but the manager needs some experience out there with them. They haven't got any. All those young lads, they're talented but to come on in this atmosphere, when the team are struggling like this, it's difficult for them.” Some professional stars like Ander Herrera, Alexis Sanchez and Romelu Lukaku left Old Trafford this summer while Anthony Martial and Paul Pogba both missed the game because of injuries. Neville believes Solskjaer should have chosen more experienced replacements to the footballers rather than kids. He added: “Ole wouldn't want to be calling on them [young players] in these moments. He'll know. He was at the club long enough to know what he needs. He needs three of four players down that spine to hold those young lads together.”
