Man Utd boss Solskjaer: I was right to offload Lukaku and Alexis

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says he was right to offload Romelu Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez to Inter Milan.

Last night, Mason Greenwood underlined his huge potential with the only goal at Old Trafford as United secured a 1-0 win against Astana in Thursday's Group L opener.

Put to Solskjaer that you have to be brave to play a 17-year-old having not replaced high-profile players like Sanchez and Lukaku, the United boss said: "For me, it was the right decision.

"Because I think for the club and for him, I think he's going to be important for us this season.

"He's not played a lot so far but he'll get his minutes and he'll grow and develop."
