Ole Gunnar Solskjaer reveals what he told Marcus Rashford after replacing Mourinho

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has revealed what he told Marcus Rashford when he met the England forward for the first time as Manchester United caretaker boss.

Solskjaer was appointed as club permanent boss after Jose Mourinho was sacked and won six league games in charge after Saturday’s 2-1 win over Brighton.

Rashford has now scored five goals in seven matches under Solskjaer and the caretaker manager said: “What a finish from Marcus. The way he finished it off. It is great working with him. That was his 150th game, I think he has scored more than a couple of the legends we have so he has a great future ahead of him. What I like the most is to get into their heads and find out what they are thinking. He is so calm and assured when he is finishing. That was the first thing I said to him when I met him. He had missed some chances and I said “no problem, you’ll be alright, just settle down a little bit”.
