That’s what Don Hutchison believes.
United were soundly beaten by West Ham on Sunday at the London Stadium.
Andriy Yarmolenko and Aaron Cresswell got the goals as the Hammers strolled to a comfortable 2-0 win.
United’s day was made even worse after their only fit striker, Marcus Rashford, was halted by an injury in the second-half and had to be taken off.
This left Solskjaer in a difficult situation, and was forced to put Jesse Lingard on as a striker.
And Hutchinson explained that he believes that the club’s poor decision making regarding transfers has now cost them dear.
“What Ole’s got to pick with, the team isn’t actually that good,” he said on ESPN FC.
“He’s got a good crop of youngsters, I don’t think they’ve got enough quality to lead Man Utd going forward.
“I think he’s been left in the lurch from the higher level – at boardroom level – when you look at what he’s been left to deal with.
“Yes it would have been Ole’s decision to sell Alexis [Sanchez] and [Romelu] Lukaku, that was a big decision in my opinion to sell Lukaku without a replacement.
