Solskjaer will back Man Utd kids - at risk of job

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is ready back his kids this season - even if it puts his job at risk.

Rookies like new-boy Dan James, Axel Tuanzebe, Mason Greenwood and Tahith Chong will all have big parts to play this season.

Solskjaer says, "You can call it a gamble. I am just staying true to what I believe in.

“It is not just about me getting results to improve my reputation.

“I believe in this way of managing. It is about the club going forward in the right direction, that has always been the case.

“If we don't make these decisions now, they'll have to be done in 12 months or 18 months or 24 months, because at some point these kids have to be a part of Man United."
