Solskjaer compares Rashford with Kane

Solskjaer compares Rashford with Kane

20 Jan 2019, 07:50

Manchester United new manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has said that his striker Marcus Rashford could be considered the Premier League's best striker when Harry Kane is out injured.

Forward Rashford was on target again in United's 2-1 win over Brighton and Hove Albion on Saturday - taking his tally to five in the seven games since Solskjaer was appointed a month ago; the match being the 21-year-old's 150th appearance for the club and he marked it with his 41st goal, bending a fine finish into the top corner to demonstrate just why Solskjaer rates him so highly.

"You can argue for many strikers but I'm glad he's in my team. Harry Kane is injured so maybe that gives him a better chance to be the best one at the moment. No one beats him on work rate, no one beats him on attitude and he's very confident in front of goal at the moment. He finishes, tries to shoot, he doesn't think twice about it. I think he's playing the best football in his career," Solskjaer said after the game.

Rashford's form has been integral to Solskjaer's fine start at the Old Trafford helm, with the Norwegian having now presided over seven wins from seven.
