Solskjaer challenges Rashford to score more goals from inside the box

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has challenged Marcus Rashford to score more goals from inside the penalty area.

The 21-year-old has scored nine Premier League goals so far this season, his highest total in a league campaign, but Solskjaer believes the forward should score more from inside the box and referenced ex-United star Cristiano Ronaldo as an example to follow.

“I keep battering him with it that he also should score as many goals as Romelu Lukaku after the training session has finished,” Solskjaer said in his pre-match press conference.

“Rashy’s goals are sometimes worldies and he does have a sensational strike of the ball but you see the improvement and maturity and change in Cristiano’s goals from when he was young to now and he scores more from inside the box and that’s what Rashy has to do.

“You can get those extra five or 10 goals from staying in the box, and he’s been told that.”

Manchester United travel to London this weekend to face Arsenal in a crunch clash in the race to finish in the top four this season.
