Marcus Rashford explains how Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has improved him for Manchester United
Marcus Rashford says Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been a “massive help” in improving him as a striker since his appointment.
The 21-year-old has been one of the biggest beneficiaries of Solskjaer’s arrival, moving into a central striking role in the manager’s first game and repaying him with six goals in 12 matches.
Few can relate to Rashford better than a player who scored 126 goals across 11 seasons for Manchester United, and ahead of their clash with Liverpool on Sunday, live on Sky Sports Premier League and Sky Sports Main Event at 2.05pm, he told Soccer AM: “For me, it’s been a massive help having that type of guidance around me.
“But he’s been working with all of the players with everything he’s got, you can see even the defenders are improving, the midfield is improving, the team’s improved overall but we understand we can still take more steps forward.
“He has that know-how, the understanding, that’s the kind of thing you just pick off naturally off these type of people. Even not just out on the pitch, having conversations about it, it all adds up. It’s been a big turnaround. As long as we keep improving I don’t see why [he shouldn’t get the job permanently].”
