Former Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger, feels Manchester United’s current crop of youngsters lack the potential to emulate the club’s celebrated class of ’92.

The likes of Ryan Giggs, David Beckham and Paul Scholes all graduated from the club’s academy, to play key roles in a decade of Premier League dominance under Sir Alex Ferguson.

After missing out on Champions League qualification last season, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer allowed the likes of Romelu Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez leave.

Solskjaer has placed his faith in young players like winger Daniel James and fullback Aaron Wan-Bissaka.

Wenger fears the weight of expectancy could have a detrimental impact on United’s young players.

“When you see Man United they are one of the examples where there is a potential there.

“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 United all together.

“That’s the big question mark now. You feel there is something coming out but it’s not ready.

“That’s why I say when you watch them play they are not candidates to fight for the championship.

“Will they emulate what Giggs, Scholes, Beckham did over a number of years? Personally I’m not convinced,” Wenger told beIN Sports.
