Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has warned his players that their places in the team is far from being guaranteed as he expects them to give their all for the club.

Speaking ahead of the clash against Brighton & Hove Albion, Ole said: “You need competition for places at Man United.

“If you think you’ve got a divine right to be playing every game and are doing so well that we’re not going to look for players to replace you, you’re in the wrong place.

“I’ve been here myself for so many years as a striker and Teddy Sheringham comes in, Dwight Yorke comes in, Ruud van Nistelrooy comes in, Wayne Rooney comes in.

“We’ve always got to look at improving, and if they don’t improve, we might have to look somewhere else to get better because we have to be better. We’re too far away from where we need to be and want to be.

“Romelu is a very good goalscorer, he’ll score goals in any team that he plays in. It was time now for him to move on and pursue other dreams.

“For us as a group it was time to allow our forwards to feel that confidence and feel that demand of playing and being demanded to play every game, two, three, four games, five, six, seven games on the bounce and perform.”

The Red devils face Brighton next in the league as we battle for a place in the top-four.
