Man Utd boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer claims it’s “not my job” to keep his fringe players happy but it’s “up to them to be fit and be ready when called upon”.
The Red Devils have so far failed to offload a number of fringe players who are unlikely to feature much this campaign.

The likes of Sergio Romero, Phil Jones – who only made two Premier League matchday squads last season – and Marcos Rojo are all reportedly up for sale this summer.

“You know, players are happy when they win well and win games, I am too, it’s not my job to keep them happy,” Solskjaer told reporters.
“It’s to pick players to get results, and up to them to be fit and be ready when called upon.”
On transfers, Solskjaer said: “As I’ve said so many times, I’m very confident in my players. If and when something happens with ins and outs, we’ll update you.
“In football, you can’t predict too much, but for me we’re just working on getting better. My focus is solely on the game, I can’t be thinking any other way. Then we can talk again.”
