Man Utd news: Ole Gunnar Solskjaer gives verdict on Roy Keane backing Harry Kane transfer | Football | Sport
But, speaking on the eve of the club’s Europa League Group L clash against Partizan Belgrade, Solskjaer smiled when Keane’s comments were put to him.
“Roy’s quite straightforward isn’t he? For us it’s working hard, getting Anthony back is going be a massive boost for us and I’m sure when Anthony comes back that’ll help Marcus as well,” Solskjaer said.
“With the forwards we’ve got and the pace, I’m looking forward to the next few weeks.
“There aren’t many Robert Lewandowskis and Harry Kanes, they’re like Alan Shearer, Ruud Van Nistelrooy – fantastic players.
“Ours are different types of players but I like someone who can finish half a chance and he does that.
“Marcus’s played with Harry and knows how good he is but he’s a Tottenham player.”
Luke Shaw and Nemanja Matic are expected back in Manchester before the weekend after warm-weather training in Dubai.
United will be looking to put a six-game winless run behind them when they take on Partizan in Belgrade on Thursday night.
