Ole Gunnar Solskjaer - Rashford Must Have Been Watching Cristiano Ronaldo Practicing

Marcus Rashford recent shooting form has prompt manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer likening him to Christiano Ronaldo.

Solskjaer described Rashford recent free kick expertise as though he watched Cristiano Ronaldo practice free-kicks at Manchester United. 

Rashford scored the second goal for Manchester United last night against a stubborn Newcastle United side, having also helped Romelu Lukaku open the scoring.

Rashford scored from the free kick spot against Cardiff and sent another towards goal against Newcastle that leads to Lukaku’s opener.

Solskjaer believes Rashford may have learnt a bit from former United star Ronaldo, who left Old Trafford in 2009.

"I can talk about loads of individuals but when you're a striker like he is, scores such a great goal like today, calm, composed, just passes it past the goalkeeper," he told a news conference.

"But then his free-kicks, that was, of course, the start against Cardiff and then he does it again, he's got a great hit.

"He must have been watching Cristiano when he was practicing."

Manchester United has won four of the last premeir league games, scoring 14 goals and Rashford has been instrumental in both scoring goals and assisting.
