Marcus Rashford can reach Harry Kane's level - Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

Marcus Rashford can reach Harry Kane's level - Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

The Red Devils' caretaker manager has reportedly told the England striker that he is now the number one forward at the club - ahead of Romelu Lukaku. I remember him when he scored the second goal in the injury time and how I shouted the goal of Manchester United, that was unbelievable.

"And I think he was the best manager in the world, in the history of football".

"He can become a top, top striker", said Solskjaer.

"Having players like (Harry), he's also a top, top professional and I'm sure whoever plays with him and trains with him can talk more about him".

"We are not going to get as many chances to attack against these as we had before so when we have the ball, we have to be ready to play well with it". Pogba is a very talented player, a great player of course. "He did have some problem but he came through the last couple of sessions well. He's a very exciting player to work with".

Pochettino will face his suitors Manchester United on Sunday, with sources telling ESPN that he remains the No. 1 target as the next permanent manager at Old Trafford.

Solskjaer believes Rashford can become as good as compatriot Kane.

AC Milan negotiated with the Belgian previous year, but he opted to remain at Old Trafford and sign an extension until 2020.

Solskjaer has accepted the speculation surrounding Pochettino - "because he has done well" - even though he knows little about the Argentinian's management style.

"I have good memories of him", said Pochettino of Solskjaer.

"When you are a manager or a coach you can not be focused on the rumours, we have to do our job in the best way." he said. From the outside, he looks like that anyway.

Despite the positive start he has made to his reign, Solskjaer revealed he has had no further discussions about his situation with the United hierarchy.

"We just keep working every single day on improving the team here".

Furthermore, he does not consider a move to Manchester to be his decision alone to make, and will consult his family and coaching staff - who would all have to move with him. "We'll put a plan together on how we want to look the next few months".
