Gary Neville identifies types of players Man Utd should target in January

Gary Neville says inexperience is costing Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at Manchester United.

United drew 3-3 against Sheffield United, and were once again poor for large stages of an away fixture. Solskjaer’s men made an incredible comeback to take a 3-2 lead, but could not feel hard done by only coming away with a point.

Speaking on Monday Night Football, Neville argues that the Reds are suffering from a lack of any leaders on the pitch, which is affecting how they set up for away games.

The need for Solskjaer to spend in the January transfer window has become glaringly obvious with United lacking in key areas all over the pitch. But Neville believes the United boss has to target two or three experienced players, that can get the best of the talented youngsters at the club.

While two or three players will not fix problems in their entirety, it would certainly provide some stability for the younger players who need more experienced, mature players to learn from.

Neville believes Solskjaer has to be ruthless and selfish in his January spending, but targets are not always easy to acquire in the winter window and the United boss has to be backed financially by Ed Woodward.
