Former Manchester United striker Louis Saha has challenged Marcus Rashford to aim for the Golden Boot. The Frenchman believes the English striker has what it takes to win the Golden Boot and has urged United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to push the player to achieve this.

“Rashford has got no excuses to not score over 20 league goals next season. He’s clearly Solskjaer’s main man up top now and he’ll start most games, giving him ample opportunities to score goals,” he told Bwin.

“He’s an excellent player and has all the attributes to be a golden boot winner – pace, technical ability, an engine and he’s unpredictable when he’s got the ball at his feet.

“Sometimes he’s guilty of trying one flick too many which he needs to get out of his game, as he does the hard part but then tries one thing too much.

“He’s still very young, but Solskjaer is the perfect manager to get the best out of Rashford. Solskjaer always took his chances and was clinical in front of goal and if he can pass that down to Rashford, then he’ll score 20-30 goals a season.”
