Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has joked about the failed advice he gave to Marcus Rashford ahead of Manchester United’s win away at Leicester.
The England international netted the only goal of the match when he latched onto a superb lofted pass from Paul Pogba before dispatching an effort low into the bottom corner of the goal.
Rashford was making his 100th appearance in the Premier League and marked the occasion with a goal which his club manager would have been delighted with.
However, speaking after the match Solskjaer joked how Rashford had ignored his own advice in the build-up to the game.
The Norwegian coach had encouraged the forward to always hit the ball through the legs of Kasper Schmeichel when through on goal, however Solskjaer was happy to be proven wrong on Sunday afternoon.
When asked how much he enjoyed the finish from the Rashford, the caretaker manager told Sky Sports: “Very much so! But then again I told him (to put it) through Schmeichel’s legs, because he opens up! But it was a great finish so I can’t complain, can I?
“It is a hard place to come. First goal is vital against a team like this, I think we started brilliantly. Marcus had a great chance from Luke’s cross and he finished the ball fantastically when Paul played him through. So I’ve got to say the start made the foundation.”
