Manchester United striker Marcus Rashford has thrown his weight behind interim Red Devils boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer for the permanent managerial job at Old Trafford.
England international Rashford has enjoyed some form of a renaissance under the brief managerial spell of Solskjaer and he has seen enough to be certain that the former Manchester United hitman should be given the manager’s job on a permanent basis.
The 21-year-old made a case for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to keep the Manchester United job for the long haul in an interview with Sky Sports as he narrated how he has helped him to become a better player in the space of a few months.
Marcus Rashford has become the first choice striker at Manchester United since the interim appointment of Solskjaer ahead of former recipient Romelu Lukaku.
The Manchester United Academy player has repaid the faith shown in him by his manager with six goals scored in just eight league games in comparison to the poor goal tally of three in 14 games while Jose Mourinho was the Manchester United manager.
The ex-FC Porto, Inter Milan and Real Madrid manager was sacked in December after a poor run of form but Solskjaer has been able to salvage the situation with a run of eight wins and one draw from nine Premier League games under his watch.
