Robson: Solskjaer gettng it right for Man Utd in transfer market

Manchester United great Bryan Robson is convinced by the ability of manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in the transfer market.

Robson is adamant Solskjaer is getting it right with his buying.

He told The Sun: “Maybe not this season, maybe not just yet, but Ole's buys have been good. You can't knock Wan–Bissaka, who may not be the greatest on the ball, but what a good defender.

“I'm not having it that Maguire isn't absolutely top class. Yes, he's made the odd mistake, but what centre-half doesn't? What is most important is that he has personality, that drive.

“He's a leader but there is a whole team of leaders beginning to develop in there, just like we had. Van de Beek, with the personality many within Old Trafford have told me he has, will fit right in.

“Ole talked about creating the right culture within his squad and he is doing it — last season you saw the start. Now he has another in there who will add to the team spirit."
