Solskjaer backs Rashford to reach Kane's level

Solskjaer backs Rashford to reach Kane's level

Meanwhile, Rashford has scored in three of the four games he's played under Solskjaer and is nearly certain to start against Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday.

"For me it wasn't hard - I think it was more hard for him than me".

The Reds have won all five of their games under the Norwegian's charge so far, although this weekends game against Spurs is quite comfortably the most hard that they will have faced.

But the Norwegian, United's interim manager until the end of the season, is also content with his options going forward ahead of his side's trip to face Mauricio Pochettino's men in the Premier League on Sunday.

"Mike Phelan knows the club, the fabric of the club", he told Sky Sports' The Debate show.

Manchester United used to take players from Tottenham fairly regularly, having signed Teddy Sheringham, Michael Carrick and Dimitar Berbatov, but Pochettino believes such transfers are becoming increasingly rare.

In other words: Solskjaer has fulfilled the functions of what you'd expect from a manager, encouraging a more open environment and style of football which best suits the players. He always was one of the people I admired the most, an inspiration. "He is an encyclopaedia of football".

"When you play in this Premier League, every weekend, or every three days as we've been playing in the last few months, always it's about the opponent have a few players that can make the difference", Pochettino said.

"I don't know what happened in the past but games like Tuesday's semi-final against Chelsea please me a lot".

"The team is very competitive, that is true".

"He will keep them ticking over and now we'll see if that method has worked or whether it will need to be a bit more of a methodical way of winning these games".

Pochettino is the favourite to land the United job on a permanent basis in the summer, but, should they want to appoint the Argentine, they will likely face strong resistance from Spurs chairman Daniel Levy.

United would need to pay the £34million value of Pochettino's remaining contract merely as a starting point, plus the contracts of his staff, with Levy expected to demand the biggest ever compensation fee for a manager.

"You have to give him credit because when he came here 16 years ago Tottenham was a completely different club".
