United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has opted to offer opportunities to a number of young players this term but that has not necessarily enhanced the club’s performances at the beginning of the season.
Speaking to BeIN Sports, Wenger said that the current United side have plenty of potential but they have not been able to provide a collective performance, he told: “When you see United, they are one of the examples where there’s a potential. But they have not found a collective way. Maybe these players are not mature enough to carry the play of a team like United, altogether. That’s the question mark now. You feel there is something coming out but it’s not ready. When you watch them play, they are not a candidate to fight for the championship. Will they emulate what Giggs, Scholes and Beckham did over a number of years? I’m not convinced.”
