Scholes: Man Utd have improved but they need to win a trophy

The Red Devils legend says Solskjaer deserves a contract renewal but his efforts must be completed by delivering silverware.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

’s current contract at Old Trafford will expire in 2022. However, the Norwegian coach is reportedly set to pen a new three-year deal with the Red Devils in the coming weeks. Despite their improvement in recent seasons,

Manchester United

are spending their fourth successive season without silverware.

Paul Scholes

insists his former teammate has been successful at Old Trafford but says he must take the next step by winning trophies for the club.

"I think he probably deserves it. There's been progress from the manager before,"

Scholes told the

Webby & O'Neill

YouTube channel.

"I think the team looks a lot better, it's much more exciting, there's goals in the team - which you always expect from a United team, anyway.

"I think the only problem is: win something. It's a little bit of a worry. Losing the [FA Cup] quarter-final to Leicester, it wasn't good.

"For fans especially, the Europa League was tough in Milan, I thought players looked a little bit jaded - [Bruno] Fernandes especially. 

"He probably did need the rest against Leicester, but on the other hand, I don't think United are in a position to rest people for the big games.

"I think they have 12 or 13 players that are good enough to go and win a lot of games. Is the squad then deep enough when you're leaving these big players out to go on and win the bigger games?"

Manchester United will play against
