Cape Town - Paul Scholes has admitted his surprise
at Manchester United's decision not to bring in a replacement for
Belgian striker Romelu Lukaku in the off-season.
United sold the striker to Inter Milan but chose not to pursue a
replacement, leaving themselves with only Anthony Martial and Marcus
Rashford as senior strikers.
Solskjaer has repeatedly talked up Mason Greenwood, though the teenager is yet to actually score a goal for the club.
Scholes told talkSPORT: "That's the one thing that disappoints me.
"He [Solskjaer] obviously knew they were going to sell Lukaku at some
point, but not to have a centre-forward lined up seems like a mistake
"Whether they did, whether it dragged on too long from the club's point of view, I don't know.
"They're going into a season without a centre-forward when it's a
club that is known for its attacking style and had probably four
centre-forwards in its heyday.
"So to go in there with Rashford and Martial, who you're not quite
sure if they're left-wingers or centre-forwards, we don't know. But I'm
sure it'll get sorted."
