Former Manchester United goalkeeping legend Peter Schmeichel has blasted United’s senior players, claiming a number of them aren’t up to the job.
Schmeichel believes that a number of players need to catch a wake-up for leave the club and get replaced by youngsters that are hungry for success.
“There are a few in the dressing room that are not taking the responsibility of being a Manchester United player as seriously as I would like it,” said Schmeichel.
“I find that a big shame. There are a few players there that haven’t been performing this year or the year before and I think at some point the manager needs to make a decision, whether to keep them or not keep them, and then maybe bring some younger players in instead to make some kind of statement.
“If you’re a senior player and you really want to make an impact in the dressing room, it’s difficult if you have players there who are not as committed as you are and they have a certain status.
“I’ve said it before and I’m not afraid to say that and it could be something that could be done in this transfer window, to maybe let a few players go and if that happens, you have a better chance of self-help in the dressing room,” he added.
