As a way to keep responding to the many questions about Lukaku, Solskjaer still remains certain of his decision to sell him. 

There has been a lot of criticism against Ole Gunnar Solskjaer for allowing Manchester United to sell Romelu Lukaku.

The Belgian striker started a new adventure at Inter Milan and he quickly started scoring many goals.

This took all the Manchester United fans by surprise. They blame the club for not allowing him to stay.

When you look at Lukaku’s numbers in an unbiased manner. You can tell he’s been one of the top strikers in English football throughout the last decade.

With this as a constant reminder, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has maintained his position.

The Red Devils don’t regret selling this player. Ole thinks his current forwards are doing a fantastic job.

The Norwegian manager spoke to the press ahead of his side’s visit to Arsenal’s Emirates Stadium.

He discussed this never-ending Lukaku drama. 

Rashford and Martial are perfect for scoring goals. 

“We always believed that Anthony and Marcus were going to score goals. Mason has filled a big void, he has chipped in with goals,” Solskjaer said via Four Four Two.

“I’m not worried about goals from the centre forwards. Mason has eight now, Marcus and Anthony have quite a few.

“Romelu is a good striker and he will always score goals but it was time for him to move on. We didn’t find the right one [replacement] outside of our club – we had Mason.

“If we can keep these lot fit and keep on improving, one or two additions could create competition for places,” he added.

“That’s what we have to deal with at this club. We haven’t much (competition) because we’ve had injuries but now I have to think about leaving players out. It gives me more options.

“I am optimistic that we can keep the players fit and if the right ones (transfer targets) come about I do have the resources and the backing from the board.”
