Schmeichel blasts: Some still at Man Utd using club to increase profile

Manchester United legend Peter Schmeichel says there's still some players manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer needs to "get rid".

The Dane says that although he thinks former teammate Solskjaer has done well at the club, he thinks there are players at United who "are not there to play for the badge" and should be sold.

"I'm on record for saying this a long, long time, since Ole came, that his most important job is not really to sign players, it's to get rid of players," Schmeichel told the MUTV Group Chat on Tuesday.

"There's a few players in the squad that we absolutely do not want there.

"They're not there to play for the badge. They're there to create a profile for themselves.

"I was reading about one player trying to make themselves a brand like Beckham which is shocking really. But there are players there that do not belong in the dressing room.

"And I think Ole has done really well in kind of sifting them out of the picture really, so we only get reminded that they're there in a chat like this, or reading about the squad.

"I think he's done an amazing job."
