Solskjaer admits Man Utd working to improve certain aspects of Rashford’s game

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has admitted that the club are continuing to work on improving Marcus Rashford’s finishing.

Rashford netted his 17th goal of the season as United won the first leg of their Europa League clash against Real Sociedad.

Though he was also guilty of missing some big chances including flaring one-on-one opportunities.

Red Devils boss Solskjaer himself was a wonderful finisher during his playing days and continues to work with Rashford on his finishing.

"He is getting better and better and closer and closer," Solskjaer said. "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."

United return to Premier League action this weekend as they host Newcastle on Sunday evening.

Solskjaer added: “You know, every game creates opportunities, it creates problems.

“Teams give you spaces and it’s just a natural thing because the pitch is as big as it is. There are 11 players on each team and some teams give you space behind, some give you it in between, sometimes teams try to press high or press low.

“We have to learn to adapt to every single game, it’s about learning from every game.
