Solskjaer compares Rashford to Man United greats Rooney and Ronaldo

Solskjaer compares Rashford to Man United greats Rooney and Ronaldo

The victory gave Solskjaer six wins from his opening six Premier League matches, drawing him level with Pep Guardiola and Carlo Ancelotti as the best start to a tenure in the competition.

'Not bad, is it?

According to Independent, Ole said: "No-one beats him on work-rate, no-one beats him on attitude and at the moment he's very confident in front of goal". Yes, definitely - he can be absolutely top class.

Apparently, Solskjaer has instilled the attacking philosophy of the Old Man United and most Man United players such as the likes of Pogba and Rashford seem to be different players altogether, from the ones that played under Mourinho.

It also happened to be a wonderfully well-taken effort that demonstrated Rashford's sky-high confidence - flicking the ball inside Pascal Gross and curling his shot beyond goalkeeper David Button.

Of course, the club responded to it with a simple message: "We'll vouch for you".

'That's what I like the most, to find out what he's thinking.

"Well played from him but I was a little bit upset". He will stand up for a fight and stand up for himself and a team-mate.

"He is a proper Manc", Solskjaer said.

De Gea, 28, has a deal until 2020 and has been offered a new five-year contract that would keep him at the club into his thirties.

"The past three managers have passed on so much knowledge that the players know they will have it in the locker because every day is an experience".

They face Arsenal in the FA Cup fourth round on Friday (19:55 GMT), live on BBC One, before returning to league action against Burnley on 29 January.

With Rashford having now scored five goals in six Premier League games under Solskjaer, the Norwegian tactician has claimed that the forward has enough talent to follow in the footsteps of Ronaldo and Rooney.

There is certainly a feel-good factor around Old Trafford again, with fan favourite Solskjaer getting the side smiling and playing with a swagger. "I think that everyone needs to be happy".

"As long as you take one game at a time and prepare well we should go into any game as winnable one, we have had some tough years at the club".
