Solskjaer admits Manchester United working on improving the finishing of Marcus Rashford

According to Daily Star, Manchester United manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has said that the club are working to improve the finishing capabilities of Marcus Rashford. The England forward managed to grab his 17th goal of the season so far against Real Sociedad in the Europa League.

However, Rashford did miss quite a few clear-cut chances during the game, with one or two of them 1-v-1 situations. Solskjaer, a clinical finisher himself during his playing days, came out in support of his star man.

“He is getting better and better and closer and closer. He’s improving all the time. The chances he gets he gets because of his athleticism and his movement and he was strong to hold him off the first one, the goalkeeper came close to him, so that was a hard-ish one.

“The second one, the ‘keeper comes out, that’s another one we’re working on. We had loads of practice on that yesterday, actually. But he’s improving and I can see that. We’re still working and he knows what we want him to improve on but the goal he scored was a very very good example of composure and technical quality.”
