Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has hailed the abilities of striker Marcus Rashford ahead of Monday’s Premier League game against Southampton.

The Norwegian believes the 22-year-old has what it takes to become a top striker.

“I’m very happy with him [Rashford]. He’s physically coping well with the games. He’s mixing up his game; he’s making defenders think. He runs in behind, he comes short, he can play a pass, he can play and run, he’s got individual skills,” Solskjaer said.

“So, Marcus has got all the attributes to be a top a centre forward – or a forward,” the Norwegian added.
