Man Utd boss Solskjaer: Rashford is bulking up

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer insists Marcus Rashford has another level in his game.

The 24-year-old forward could make his first appearance of the season in Saturday's Premier League game at Leicester after recovering from shoulder surgery.

Solskjaer said: “I know we'll see the best of Marcus in the years to come.

“He's done remarkable things at a young age and he's now coming into his best age for a footballer.

“He's learning. He's getting more and more experience. He's got a challenge on his hands here at Man United and a challenge to play for England and I think Marcus is one of those who takes up those challenges.

“He's going to express himself and his talent and he knows we want a lot from him, but also we'll give him the time to get back to what he was and what he can be."

Rashford, who scored twice on his United debut as an 18-year-old against Midtjylland in the Europa League in 2016, will embark on his seventh Premier League season.

“He does look fresh," Solskjaer said. “He looks keen, he looks fit. He's bulked up a little bit, some muscle.

“Of course, he had to bear a lot of responsibility for us because we had injuries and different players out and at such a young age he's done so much for the team.

“He's done so much off the pitch as well and I think that time away for him was time for him to focus on himself."
