Manchester United’s current crop will not emulate the famous Class of ’92 as they are ‘not mature enough to carry the team,’ according to Arsene Wenger.
The former Arsenal boss provided a damning assessment on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s youthful side following their indifferent start to the new Premier League season, with one win, two draws and one defeat.
United welcome Leicester to Old Trafford after the international break and Wenger believes young players like Scott McTominay, Mason Greenwood and Daniel James are simply not prepared to be regular starters for a club the size of United.
‘When you see Man Utd they are one of the examples where there is a potential there,’ Wenger told beIN Sports.
‘But they have not found a collective way. Maybe these players are not mature enough to carry the team play of a team like Man Utd all together.
‘Will they emulate what (Ryan) Giggs, (Paul) Scholes, (David) Beckham did over a number of years? Personally I’m not convinced.’
Solskjaer has produced the youngest average age starting XI this season with Mason Greenwood (17), Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Daniel James, Marcus Rashford (all 21), Scott McTominay (22) and Andreas Pereira (23) all actively involved in the Norwegian manager’s immediate plans.
