Manchester United did not give Ole Gunnar Solskjaer the support he needed during the summer transfer window, says Paul Scholes, with it “quite clear” who the Norwegian wanted to snap up.

The Red Devils did see a late flurry of activity deliver a number of fresh faces to Old Trafford.

Edinson Cavani and Alex Telles were snapped up on deadline day, while talented teenager Facundo Pellistri was also acquired and a deal put in place with Atalanta for Amad Traore.

Scholes admits that he had been hoping for better and believes Solskjaer will feel the same as a lack of activity contributes towards him facing more uncomfortable questions of his future.

“I don’t think he’s the first one who hasn’t been backed,” United legend Scholes told Stadium Astro.

“There’s been a lot of money spent but has it been spent on the first choices these managers want? I’m not too sure.

“I think [Louis] van Gaal and [Jose] Mourinho especially had a moan about that and it’s understandable when they aren’t getting the players they want.

“I think Ole’s been supported. I think Maguire at £80 million is a lot of money, [Bruno] Fernandes just in January has been an excellent signing and the form was good especially coming from Fernandes in January time you felt that this team was going places.”
