Manchester United Coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says unused players must earn their way back in
Jesse Lingard's representatives in talks with clubs in England and Europe; Chris Smalling, Phil Jones, Marcos Rojo, Sergio Romero and Andreas Pereira yet to feature in United's matchday squad
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has warned Manchester United's out-of-favour stars they have to work their way back into his plans and insists it is not his job to keep them happy.
Jesse Lingard, who was left out of the side for United's league opener against Crystal Palace, has yet to be persuaded to leave Old Trafford despite his representatives holding initial talks with several clubs in England and Europe.
Sergio Romero, Chris Smalling, Phil Jones, Marcos Rojo and Andreas Pereira have all failed to feature in either of United's matchday squads this season, including Tuesday's Carabao Cup victory at Luton.
United's failure to offload players this summer has been linked to their lack of activity with incomings, with Donny van de Beek the only major signing in this window.
Players are happy when they play well and win games," Solskjaer said. "It's not my job to keep them happy. My job is to pick players to get results.
"It's up to them to be fit, to work hard and be ready when called upon."
