Manchester United’s interim manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, has urged Marcus Rashford to emulate Cristiano Ronaldo, by scoring more goals from inside the penalty area.

Rashford’s dramatic late penalty sent United through to the quarter-finals of the Champions League on Wednesday evening.

The England striker has scored 14 goals this season and seven in 16 under Solskjaer.

But United’s caretaker boss insists he can improve.

“I keep battering him [Rashford] with that he also should score as many goals as Rom [Lukaku].

“You should always get those simple tap ins, finishes, like Rom’s scored the last few games.

“Rashy’s goals sometimes are worldies and he does have a sensational strike of the ball.

“But you see the change in Cristiano’s goals from when he was young to now, he scores more from inside the box and that’s what Rashy has to improve as well,” Solskjaer told Sky Sports.
