EPL – Solskjaer Finally Picks Designated Penalty Taker


Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has finally picked his designated penalty taker according to the latest reports emanating from the media in the United Kingdom (UK).

Solskjaer and his Manchester United players are under the spotlight after the penalty miss that overshadowed the Premier League meeting with Wolverhampton Wanderers on Monday night.

According to UK Sun, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has made Marcus Rashford the designated penalty taker for the team.

It was revealed that Solskjaer tore into Marcus Rashford and Paul Pogba after the events of Monday night.

Rashford and Pogba had a discussion over the penalty awarded by Manchester United before the latter had his spot-kick saved by Wolves goalkeeper Rui Patricio.

At that point, the scoreline would have been 1-1 and a successful penalty from French World Cup winner Pogba would have given Manchester United a very good away win over their nemesis, Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Manchester United had taken a first-half lead through the in-form Anthony Martial who has scored in every game since the new league season started.

Wolves got back into the game through a sensational second-half strike from Ruben Neves and Manchester United would have gotten the three points at stake if not for the penalty miss.
