Solskjaer challenges Rashford and Martial ahead of new season

Manchester United head coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has challenged Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford ahead of the next campaign. 

With the pair on target during United’s 4-0 win over Leeds United on Wednesday 17th, Solskjaer expects the duo to be able to play anywhere along the attacking line. 

"With Marcus, he can play along the frontline," Solskjaer said.

"Sometimes he likes to drift to the left, same with Anthony, both of them can play at nine and 11, also together as a pair as a nine and a 10, also sometimes on the right-hand side.” 

"For me, it's great to have forwards who rotate and see, 'He's on the right side and I'll be on the left side, or he's through the middle, I'll be on the side'. I don't think we can nail them down to one position, because they're good footballers who can see space."

United played without striker Romelu Lukaku who missed the second match of the Red Devils’ pre-season tour match.
