Solskjaer backs Martial to shine
Anthony Martial has what it takes to become a 20-goal striker after committing his future, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says.
The Frenchman appeared to be heading for the exit door under Jose Mourinho, but has now penned a new contract to take him through until 2024, much to the delight of Solskjaer.
The Manchester United caretaker boss says there is much more to come from Martial and believes he is capable of one day eclipsing the 17 goals he bagged in the 2015-16 campaign.
"He has the capability [to reach 20 goals]," said former United striker Solskjaer. "You have to read and sniff wherever there is going to be a chance.
"Maybe some scruffy goals as well at times. We have players like him and Marcus Rashford, they score worldy goals. But then five or six extra goals - that I used to do by getting tap-ins by making the runs that I used to do.
"I'd like him to make a couple more runs in behind, but I've not seen many players with the quick feet and skills in the last third that he has.
"We are going to build his career and hopefully he will grab the chance with both feet."
