The 34-year-old also feels Edinson Cavani should be in the team whenever fit, although the veteran striker is currently sidelined throuh injury.
The Red Devils may be having a reasonably promising season, second in the Premier League and still in the FA Cup and Europa League, but Bolt wants to see changes at Old Trafford and has been particularly scathing of Fred.
‘I think Fred should not be in the midfield,’ Bolt told CNN. ‘I think he is lacking so much. He works hard, but he’s lacking passing and he gives away a lot of cheap fouls in bad areas.
‘We definitely need more strikers, somebody that’s really a pure striker.
“I think [Edinson] Cavani needs to play more. I definitely feel like as long as he’s fit, he should be on the field, you know what I mean, and overall I think we need to just pressure all the players. I feel like they’re so comfortable now because they know they’re going to start.’
Bolt’s general feeling is that there needs to be a toughening up at Old Trafford, with players getting out of their comfort zones, and that must come from the manager.
‘If he changes – he’s too nice,’ Bolt said when asked if Solskjaer should remain as Manchester United manager.
‘That’s the only thing I can say, he’s too nice. He never really says anything bad about any player, even if they don’t play good and that’s the only thing, but if he changes and really pressures the players, you know what I mean, calls them out sometimes when they really didn’t put their all into it, then I feel like he should stay because he is cool and the fans love him.’
