Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says the Red Devils must take “smart” decisions during the transfer window and keep nurturing their youth players in order to challenge the top sides in the Premier League next season.

There will be no Champions League football next season for the most successful club in the EPL as relegated Huddersfield held them to a 1-1 last Sunday to make it impossible for United to finish in the top four of the league.

Concise News reports that the Terriers stunned United as Isaac Mbenza’s first goal for the club levelled Scott McTominay’s first-half effort.

“We’ve got to recruit smart, we’ve got to keep blooding the youngsters and we’ll be fine,” Solskjaer said.

“This club is huge and the media and everyone’s criticising us as soon as they’ve got a chance. We got a few injuries and it’s been ups and downs for the last two months, but that’s football.

“It’s not like (playing the video game) Football Manager. You’ve got to deal with different stuff outside of football as well… But I’ve enjoyed it. It’s a great challenge. I haven’t gone to bed one night worrying about what’s going to happen.”

United host relegated Cardiff City on Sunday in their final game of the season.
