Video: “He’s improving all the time” – Solskjaer working closely with Rashford

Marcus Rashford missed some big chances in the first half against Real Sociedad and Neil Custis put a question to the Manchester United manager about the forward becoming a complete player.

Solskjaer answers by outline how Rashford uses his athleticism to get into the best opportunities for his team-mates to create opportunities. He admits that the England international is still a work in progress, without putting it that way, which we all knew already.

Rashford is, at 23, one of the best players out there in his position. However, he needs to learn how to compose himself better in front of goal. I can see other areas of his game improving this season, but goals are what make the difference and win you games.

The goal he scored last night showed that he can compose himself in front of goal but he needs to work on it becoming a strong point to his game.

We just need to see it more often.

“He’s improving all the time,” Solskjaer told reporters. “Of course, the chances he gets because of his athleticism, his movement and he was strong to hold him off [for] the first one.”
