Solskjaer explains why he starts Fred & McTominay in Man United's midfield so often

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has moved on to describe why he uses Scott McTominay and Fred in a midfield pair so often.

Man United’s midfield McFred

Following the closing of the summer transfer window, it has become even clearer to everyone that Manchester United’s weakest area is the defensive midfield.

Fred and / or Scott McTominay are usually deployed in this area, along with Paul Pogba in the ‘McFred’ pivot.

However, both players (particularly the former) are simply not cut out to be a leading defensive midfielder for a superior team.

The Brazilian has been particularly poor in recent years, incitement Roy Keane to question whether United can realistically compete for the biggest titles with the Brazilian in his midfield:

“All the shortcomings of United have manifested themselves in the last few days. Look at the performance of the two midfielders. [Scott] McTominay is a good and honest player. And they have Fred. As long as those two players are in Manchester United’s midfield, they won’t win big trophies. “

Solskjaer on choosing McTominay and Fred

Despite the pair not being the highest quality defensive midfielder, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has generally preferred to use McFred’s pivot over any other midfield combination in recent years.

This has generally led to Paul Pogba playing more on the left where he seems to play his best football, Nemanja Matic is only used occasionally and Donny van de Beek, well the less talked about his time at United the better. .

Now, though, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has explained why Fred and McTominay start off so often, and the Norwegian is keen to highlight the energy and desire they bring:

“As you said, first of all, the statistics of those two together, we have had many, many good results, the energy they give us, the way we broke up playing against Villa, they are very, very instrumental together, in that sense. Energy and enthusiasm, and I really like having them both.

“There are two that I can trust and I will always give what they have. The fans will always have an opinion on the selection of any team and when you have good players like me it is difficult to leave them out ”.
