Manchester United legend Peter Schmeichel has questioned Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team selection for the 2-1 defeat to Young Boys on Tuesday evening.

Schmeichel told CBS Sports: “We can always question team selection, I just think when your next game is Sunday at West Ham, first game in the Champions League – why don’t you play your best team, your best players?

“Regardless of astroturf, whatever excuses you come up with, get that win on there. I think when you look at Mason Greenwood, he’s in great form, he’s a young man, he creates chances and not only does he score he creates chances for others.

“Varane has just come to the club but I would’ve loved to see those two playing. Then he takes Ronaldo off. We as fans want Ronaldo to be on the pitch, regardless of if they’re down to 10 men, if he gets the ball he can make something happen.

“They were hoping for a very long time to have that kind of player and he puts somebody on that he last year he sent out on loan. He’s a player he tried to sell, tried to loan out, and he replaces him with Ronaldo, I just find it strange.

“But to get a result in-house, it’s 1-1, he puts Martial on, we talked about that, that was really weird because Martial doesn’t defend well. He doesn’t work hard, he’s a goalscorer but we’re down to 10 men, we don’t expect to create many chances, so why put Martial on?”
