'I had a little bit of a go at him' - Solskjaer reveals Rashford dig in Man Utd win


Rashford/Solskjaer Manchester United 2020-21

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaerhas revealed he "had a little bit of a go" at Marcus Rashford during their dramatic 3-2 win over Brighton in the Premier League on Saturday.

Rashford scored the Red Devils'second goal of the game after being released by Fernandes in the 55th minute and also had another strikeruled out.

While an overall promising performance from the England international, Solskjaer admitted he did call Rashford out in the first-half as he looked to ignite the attacker.

"He was getting better and better. I had a little bit of a go at him halfway through the first-half for a tackle he evaded, but I think his reaction, his sharpness is getting better, he's more direct," Solskjaer said of Rashford post-match.

"You can see his confidence is getting there. Great goal and great run - and great finish for the one that was disallowed as well. And I think Marcus will really kick on this season.

"I’m very happy for Marcus to get that goal. He was just a couple of inches offside on a counter-attack we had, with a great cross from Mason Greenwood."

The goal was Rashford's first in the league this season and comes just days after he also struck in a 3-0 win over Luton Town in the Carabao Cup.

Rashford scored 22 goals in all competitions last campaign and was recently named as the most skillful player Jadon Sancho has lined up alongsideto date.

Despite his strong stats last season, Rashford felt he could have done much better and has challenged himself to do even moveover the next 12 months.

"I missed four or five months and in my mind, I could have done much more this season. But for whatever reason, it didn't happen," Rashfordtold thePA News Agency earlier this month.

"I never lose touch with reality and I know next season, I have to come back better than I was last season.
