‘Marcus Rashford needs to prioritise football’ – Ole

Manchester United head coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer claims that Marcus Rashford needs to prioritise his football.

Solskjaer says that Rashford needs to do so if he is to meet the twin challenges of playing for club and country.

The 23-year-old forward has earned huge praise for his off-field work around food poverty among children.

“He is coming into the best age for a footballer and he’s got a challenge on his hands here at Manchester United.”

“HE also has a challenge on his hands to play for England.”

Rashford became an MBE in 2020 and this month received an honorary doctorate from the University of Manchester.

However, Solskjaer says the forward must keep his focus on his day job.

The manager, though, does not feel Rashford’s activities away from the pitch have impacted his on-field performances.

“Marcus has done some remarkable and fantastic things,” Solskjaer added.

“But now he maybe needs to prioritise his football.”

Marcus Rashford is already edging towards 300 United appearances, in addition to 46 England caps.
