Man Utd news: Ole Gunnar Solskjaer reveals the problem he has with Marcus Rashford

MANCHESTER UNITED boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has revealed the one issue he has with Marcus Rashford at Old Trafford.

Manchester United manager Solskjaer has deployed Rashford up top in his opening two matches as Red Devils boss.

The England international impressed in the 5-1 win over Cardiff on Saturday – finding the net with a curling free-kick – before starring against Huddersfield on Boxing Day.

Solskjaer’s midas touch has already improved Manchester United and, seemingly, the club’s No 10 too.

But the Red Devils boss believes his players must do more to help Rashford realise his potential, believing them to be unable of noticing the 21-year-old at times.

“What we can do with him is use him more, because I don’t think the team is used to his runs,” Solskjaer told Norwegian TV2.

“If you just watch him, the amount of runs and the good runs he makes in second half when we’re 2-0 up and 3-0 up and he makes runs in behind and he gets in behind the defence.

“We must look for his runs earlier.

“His speed is his strength. I’m going to work with him on his finishing. He’s just got to calm down a little bit.

“He’s got a great strike from outside the box and inside the box we’ll just keep on working on being cool and calm and pass it past the keeper.”

Meanwhile, former United star Ryan Giggs has praised Rashford, Paul Pogba and David De Gea for their performances in United’s Huddersfield rout.

“Ole’s first home game, and the positivity that came from Cardiff game the performance and result everyone was looking forward to it,” Giggs said.

“The big players are turning up, Pogba with the goals, David [De Gea] with a great save and Marcus [Rashford] getting better and better each game.

“There’s a real positivity around the game and we need that to carry on to the Bournemouth game.”

Rashford could feature when United face Bournemouth on Sunday (4pm).

And the England forward will be hoping for a repeat of last time out against the Cherries.

Rashford scored a late winner as United beat Bournemouth 2-1 back in November.

That goal came after Callum Wilson and Anthony Martial had traded blows.
