Marcus Rashford has paid tribute to Manchester United caretaker-manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer with a brilliant tweet.
Manchester United have enjoyed an incredible revival under the stewardship of the former striker, winning all five of their fixtures under the Norwegian’s management, scoring 16 goals and conceding just three.
Their turnaround in form has come from them playing a more attacking and high-intensity game, with the likes of Paul Pogba and Marcus Rashford really shining under the new regime, with Jose Mourinho’s more pragmatic tactics having stifled the attacking talents of his star-studded squad.
Solskjaer has taken his squad on a pre-arranged warm weather training camp in Dubai, where after having played two games a week since his appointment last month, he is finally able to do some proper training sessions with his squad.
Having scored 126 goals for United, including that famous Champions League winner in 1999, Solskjaer is quite rightly a legend among Manchester United supporters, and as a boyhood fan of the club, Marcus Rashford will have almost certainly idolised his new gaffer while growing up.
The United number 10 took time to compose a fabulous tweet which showed three of United’s attackers listening intently to their new gaffer, a tweet which paid homage to Solskjaer’s most famous moment as a player.

Rashford’s recent calm, placed finish against Newcastle saw Martin Keown suggest that the England international may already be reaping the benefits of working with Solskjaer, and the sight of the Red Devils’ current crop of strikers all soaking up information from their new boss will give United fans even more reasons to be hopeful for the rest of the season.
In the four league games under Solskjaer, Manchester United have seen the 11 point gap to the Premier League top four cut to just six, but face a stern test next weekend when they face Spurs at Wembley on Sunday afternoon.
