Manchester United hero Dwight Yorke has raised concerns over Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team, despite the Red Devils sitting just one point off the top of the Premier League table. United spent big this summer bringing in the likes of Jadon Sancho, Raphael Varane and Cristiano Ronaldo.
Ronaldo, who returned to Old Trafford from Juventus, has made the biggest impact of the new additions.
The Portuguese international has scored five goals in all competitions this season, showing the clinical edge which has won him five Ballon d’Ors.
However, Yorke is not convinced by United’s attack, which has a host of glittering talent.
“I find it frustrating when you have that sort of talent going forward, that you can’t push teams right back,” Yorke told the Daily Mail.
“They should be fearing us more than I think they are at the moment.
“It’s just unbelievable. [Anthony] Martial can come on, [Marcus] Rashford still has to come back into the equation.
“We are a serious threat, this team going forward.
“You’ve got Bruno [Fernandes], [Paul] Pogba is included in that. You’ve got Ronaldo. I mean, what more do you really need?
“Unfortunately, everybody can’t play at the same time. I think we have enough to send shockwaves around the Premier League, and certainly Europe as well.”
Meanwhile, ex-defender Wes Brown has backed his former team-mate Solskjaer to get the best out of his new signings.
“He’s obviously brought in good signings,” Brown said. “This summer, the signings are winners, which is going to help the team. This season is a big season for him.
“But any manager at Manchester United will always be looked at to win trophies. That’s just the club we’re at.
“Ole will be no different. But I do think this season, we have a squad capable of definitely doing that.
“The signings brought in are experienced and have won many trophies before. We’re still early on in this season.
“The team are just getting to feel and know each other. We still have got enough to win trophies.
“It’s a new-ish team. Defensively they’re just getting to know each other. Cristiano has come back. They’re just warming up.
“I think we’ve had spells in the games so far where we can see potential. I just think it’s about making it more consistent now.”
