Solskjaer’s Statement Confirms The Two Man Utd Players Who Are Leaving The Club

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has given a big hint that Chris Smalling and Marcos Rojo no longer want to be at the Old Trafford.

Smalling and Rojo have been training away from the first-team in recent weeks and were therefore not part of the squad for the Red Devils’ first two matches of the season.

England international Smalling spent a successful spell on loan at Roma last term and the Serie A club are keen on making the deal permanent.

But Solskjaer’s side are yet to receive an offer they feel is acceptable for the 30-year-old.

Rojo, on the other hand, spent the second half of last season at boyhood club Estudiantes.

And when asked about why the pair are training alone, the United boss strongly hinted it is due to their desire to leave the club.

“It’s different ways they can get their fitness and sharpness but, of course, the first major contribution is for them to give 100 per cent and want to be a part of the team themselves,” Solskjaer said.

“They have got to want to be a part of this team going forward, be a part of this culture. If they don't they will have to train by themselves.”
