Wright: Man Utd boss Solskjaer deserves credit for Rashford progress

Arsenal great Ian Wright says Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer deserves credit for the progress of Marcus Rashford.

Rashford struck the winner against Wolves in midweek.

"I think Ole deserves credit for the way he switched Marcus Rashford over from the left-hand side to the right-hand side," said Wright.

"When he did that - from the left, the runs he was making were in to out, he wasn't really hurting their defence.

"He was getting the ball in positions where they were very happy, very comfortable.

"When you've got Bruno Fernandes who can hit the ball like that… he's still got a lot to do but we're talking about someone with supreme confidence.

"He gets the luck, gets the deflection off Saiss - who had a brilliant game - and gets the goal. Brilliant play from him today.

"And you've got to give Ole Gunnar Solskjaer credit for it."
