Rash­ford can be as good as Kane, says Sol­sk­jaer

Tehran Times - - WORLD SPORTS -

Manch­ester United boss Ole Gun­nar Sol­sk­jaer says Mar­cus Rash­ford has the po­ten­tial to be as good a cen­tre-for­ward as Eng­land team­mate Harry Kane as the pair pre­pare to face off in the Premier League this week­end.

Rash­ford is ex­pected to line up as the spear­head of United’s at­tack when they face Kane’s Tottenham at Wem­b­ley on Sun­day with both the team and striker on a hot run of form un­der the in­terim man­ager.

Rash­ford looks reborn un­der in­terim coach Sol­sk­jaer, scor­ing three times in the cen­tre-for- ward po­si­tion as United have rat­tled off four straight league wins since the Nor­we­gian took over from the sacked Mour­inho in De­cem­ber to close in on the Cham­pi­ons League places.

“He can be­come a top, top striker,” said Sol­sk­jaer. “We can talk about Harry Kane and his class and I’m sure Mar­cus as well. He’s got the po­ten­tial to get up there.

“He’s got fright­en­ing pace, he’s now be­come stronger and can hold the ball up for us. He’s a great link player.”
