Solskjaer admits Man Utd have too many centre-backs

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer admits he has too many centre-backs in his squad.

Phil Jones, Chris Smalling and Marcos Rojo all missed out on the match-day squad for last weekend's win over Chelsea.

"I do have too many centre-backs to keep everyone happy," Solskjaer said. " But we need to win games, we need to perform - so we will pick the players that give us the biggest chance to win games.

"They're all quality centre-backs and we will need quite a few of them. With Eric Bailly's injury, we have six fit centre-backs - which is maybe one too many to keep everyone involved."
