Ole regrets using ‘exploit’ as he backtracks on Man Utd transfer view

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says he regrets using the word “exploit” when outlining his transfer plans for Man Utd during lockdown, while he has been impressed with his squad depth recently.

The Red Devils have started off the season with one win and one loss in their first two Premier League matches but they have won both their Carabao Cup matches against Luton Town and Brighton.

Back in April, Solskjaer was confident Man Utd would be able to “exploit” less well off clubs in the transfer market with some suffering financially.

However, after making just one signing so far this summer, in the form of Donny van de Beek, Solskjaer now regrets his use of the word “exploit”.

“When we’re planning, you’ve got players here we believe in,” Solskjaer said. “Of course, the transfer window is still open for a little while and the club has been working and know my view and we’re here to strengthen it in the long-term as well.

“I’m not gonna say what’s acceptable or not for other clubs and teams in this difficult period. We’ll tell you when and if something happens.

“I think my wording during lockdown – ‘exploit’ – was a bad word by me. I didn’t mean that in that respect, I meant there might be clubs and players out there that have to move because of the situation and it might be a something interesting for us.

“At the moment we’ve not had the, what’s the word? There’s not been those situations. Of course, we’ve lost loads of money, as the other clubs have as well. And when I talk about the squad depth, we’ve got a big squad.”
