Manchester United interim coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer believes Marcus Rashford must have watched Cristiano Ronaldo’s free-kick practice during his time with the Red Devils. Right after helping Romelu Lukaku to score the opener, Rashford sealed the 2-0 victory against Newcastle United last night with a brilliant strike.
Newcastle United’s goalkeeper Martin Dubravka failed to deal with Rashford’s excellent free-kick which then falls for the Lukaku to tap in. And after the match, the interim coach believes that the English star must have learned a lot from the Cristiano Ronaldo and his techniques who left the Manchester club way back in 2009.
While talking about the brilliant display of gameplay by Marcus Rashford, Manchester United interim coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer told in the news conference “I can talk about loads of individuals but when you’re a striker like he is, scores such a great goal like today, calm, composed, just passes it past the goalkeeper.”
He said, “But then his free-kicks, that was, of course, the start against Cardiff and then he does it again, he’s got a great hit.” The Manchester United manager then compared the young striker with Cristiano Ronaldo while saying “He must have been watching Cristiano when he was practicing.”
While talking about his fourth straight wins, Solskjaer said “That will be in the books but it’s nothing I’m thinking of,” he said of winning his fourth straight,” and added, “I’m just thinking about the next game, because if you win four you can win another four with this club.” He then also said, “That’s the challenge, that’s the standard we’re used to.”
He said, “It’s such a great bunch of players, atmosphere, but it’s the next game, it’s the next game, it’s the next game, and I’m doing my job as long as I’m here.” Ole Gunnar Solskjaer further added, “I’m just thinking about the next game, because if you win four you can win another four with this club.”
