Rashford can reach Kane’s level – Solskjaer


Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has backed Marcus Rashford to emulate Harry Kane and become one of the most feared strikers in the world, KweseESPN reports.


Kane has bagged 20 Premier League goals in each of his last four seasons and won the Golden Boot at last summer’s World Cup. Rashford has scored in five of his last eight appearances and Solskjaer believes the 21-year-old can reach the same level as his England teammate.



“He can become a top, top striker,” said Solskjaer. “We can talk about Harry Kane and his class, and I’m sure Marcus as well. He’s got the potential to get up there.


“He’s got frightening pace, he’s now become stronger and can hold the ball up for us. He’s a great link player. He’s a very exciting player to work with.”



Rashford and Kane will go head-to-head at Wembley on Sunday when Manchester United take on Tottenham. The Premier League clash will also see Solskjaer go up against Mauricio Pochettino, the favourite to land the United manager’s job permanently in the summer.


“I’ve only met him once myself. He was a very nice man to speak to and we had a nice chat,” said the Norwegian, who has a contract at Old Trafford until the end of the season. “He’s probably a very good man manager, but you’ve got to ask someone else. From the outside, he looks like that anyway.


“He’s got good players, it’s the same with me. It’s easier to play an attacking way and your way when you’ve got good players, and he’s got lots of good players.”
