Ole Gunnar Solskjaer prefers to be without a striker than have Romelu Lukaku

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer claims he prefers to be without a striker than have Belgium star Romelu Lukaku at Man United.

The Old Trafford dwellers offloaded the Belgium forward during the summer transfer window, with Inter Milan coughing out £74m, but the Norwegian insists Lukakau’s "head was not there".

Solskjaer has since put his trust in on Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial to deliver the goals this campaign.

However, the pair has been battling various injury issues this term, with Man United struggling upfront.

At the last count, Solskjaer has been slammed for United’s poor pay and result upfront, but the Norwegian tactician stressed he had no regrets selling Lukaku.

“I can say [I am a striker short], but that was the decision that I made and I made it happily," The Mirror report quoted Solskjaer as saying to Sky Sports.

"When you have players, [they may have] great potential, but Romelu's head was not here for us working forward as a group.

"I don't want to speak too much about other players. I have got lots of respects for Romelu but his time was up here.

"We are very happy with the recruitment we did. Towards the end the right one we just didn't get him over the line.

"You'd rather bite the bullet and wait because you don't want to spend big amounts of money on something that you are not sure of."
