Manchester United

United starlet ignored Solskjaer instructions

4th February 2019, 11:29 by Alex Jack

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says Marcus Rashford ignored his advice for his goal against Leicester City on Sunday.

The England forward produced the only goal of the game as he slotted the ball past Kasper Schmeichel in the early stages to help United maintain their push for a top-four finish.

However, Solskjaer joked after the full-time whistle that Rashford should have looked to put the ball between Schmeichel's legs but in truth, the Norwegian was delighted with the youngster's performance.

When asked how much he enjoyed the finish from the Rashford, Solskjaer told Sky Sports: "Very much so! But then again I told him (to put it) through Schmeichel's legs, because he opens up! But it was a great finish so I can't complain, can I?

"It is a hard place to come. First goal is vital against a team like this, I think we started brilliantly."
