Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer told the seven players he must sell

Manchester United have been told seven players they must sell by former Chelsea midfielder Craig Burley.

United have had their worst start to a season for over 30 years under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

The Red Devils are 10th in the Premier League table having won just three of their opening 11 games, losing four.

The first player Burley thinks United should sell is Paul Pogba and the ESPN FC pundit went on to name another six members of the first-team squad who he thinks should go soon.

Jesse Lingard

Burley: “There’s been one or two people who have been very critical of his off-field activities because when your off-field activities are in the public domain and are very in your face, then you have to be performing on the field and preferably at a team that are performing well.

“For all those reasons, he’s not. I’m not saying he’s a bad player, not saying he’s a bad lad, [but] I’m not keeping him.”


Burley: “No, I’m not keeping [Fred]. He’s been so disappointing and in fact, £50million or whatever it was, he’s played a bit recently and every time I see him I’m like ‘I can get a youngster to get that job’.

“He’s been outshone by [Scott] McTominay, simple as that.”

Marcos Rojo

Burley: “[Rojo’s] a ticking time bomb. Can’t trust him, can’t trust him at all and he’s a red card, disciplinarian headache waiting to happen.”

Nemanja Matic

Burley: “[Matic’s] legs have gone, he was a desperation signing really at the time.

“I think that’s one of the reasons Chelsea were happy to get him out.”

Phil Jones

Burley: “[He’s] been there [at Manchester United] too long, Phil Jones now. He’s had his time there and quite frankly he’s another one of the, we call it deadwood, you call it what you want.”

Ashley Young

Burley: “Ashley Young, at the end of the day, you love him or hate him, bit of a Marmite character.

“He isn’t a full-back and he’s a winger who’s been converted. He’s played a World Cup semi-final at left-back, so fair play to the guy.

“I’m not the biggest fan of him, I thought as a youngster he was a decent wide player.

“Ultimately I think he’s another one I think needs to go.”
