Solskjaer confirm Rashford is fit for Roma test; talks semi-final 'curse'

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has revealed that striker Marcus Rashford will be fit for their UEFA Europa League semifinals clash with AS Roma.

Rashford has been playing with an injury and there were doubts over his availability for the game but those fears have been quashed by the Norwegian who also revealed that defender Eric Bailly, who signed a new deal with the club this week, is also available for selection.

“Both of them (Bailly and Rashford) are available. That’s good. We have managed Marcus and we have had to do it for quite a while. I feel he’s gone through the worst now. He’s available for selection tomorrow, he’s happy with the progress,” Solskjaer said on his Wednesday presser.

The tactician further confirmed that his main ambition was to win a trophy as a manager for the club having failed in so many semifinals since taking over the team from Jose Mourinho.

“It will be a dream come true the day I can lift a trophy for this club as a manager. That is what we’re building for. It is ifs and buts, but our ambition is to finish this season with a trophy and to celebrate. I know what that can mean for the group,” he added.

United will be hosting the Italian faints for the first leg at Old Trafford tomorrow before taking the same opponents in the second leg in a week’s time.
