Solskjaer: Rashford can get up there with Harry Kane

Marcus Rashford

Marcus Rashford has the potential to become one of the world’s best strikers, according to Manchester United caretaker boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. The Norwegian compares Rashford wit England striker Harry Kane and feels the 20-year-old can reach the same level as the Tottenham forward.

“He can become a top, top striker,” said Solskjaer. “We can talk about Harry Kane and his class and I’m sure Marcus as well has the potential to get up there.  He has got frightening pace, he’s becoming stronger, he can now hold the ball up for us, he’s a great link player.”

Solskjaer feels that because Rashford was developed in United’s academy he  is even more likely to succeed at the highest level. “He’s been brought up here so there were a couple of sessions with the young kids. [Tahith] Chong, Angel [Gomes] and him, they play together in a certain way so he’s a very exciting player to work with.”
