Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has named the three main leaders in his United team.

Asked to name the leaders in his squad, Solskjaer told the High Performance Podcast: “You’ve had an example lately of Marcus Rashford. What kind of human being he is, but also a leader he is by stepping forward. He’s stepped forward on the pitch and off the pitch,

“He stepped forward, took his first penalty ever for Manchester United, extra time in the Champions league against PSG. He’s never have a penalty before and he takes it and he scores and we’re through. Marcus is a leader.

“Of course Bruno has come in with the impact he’s made. You can see he’s a leader because players follow him.

“That was the little spark we needed, I feel, earlier on this season from being a team who should’ve won games to winning more games.

“And of course the captain Harry Maguire. He’s been there six months and he’s captain of the club.”

We missed our chance to move into third spot by drawing 2-2 against Southampton at Old Trafford on Monday.

Goals from Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford looked to have sealed all three points, but Michael Obafemi scored in the 96th minute to dent our top-four hopes.

The Red Devils take on Crystal Palace on Thursday before an FA Cup semi-final clash against Chelsea at Wembley on Sunday.
