Ole Gunnar Solskjaer told he has made wrong decision with Man Utd star – ‘Really unfair’

That is the opinion of Sky Sports pundit and Liverpool legend Graeme Souness.

Following the departure of Romelu Lukaku to Inter Milan, Marcus Rashford is the only recognised senior centre-forward in the Manchester United squad.

Winger Anthony Martial did start centrally against Chelsea on Sunday but interchanged with Rashford throughout the 4-0 win.

But before the match Souness raised concerns over United’s reliance on 21-year-old Rashford.

The England international has only hit double figures in a season in terms of Premier League goals once.

And Souness believes it is unfair of Solskjaer to put so much responsibility on Rashford for this campaign.

“Rashford is going to be a player but at 21, last year he was being asked to be the main man at Man United,” Souness said alongside former United defender Gary Neville.

“He will be asked to do the same again today.

“You’re talking about bringing 17 and 18-year-olds to come in and do a job on a regular basis for Man United.

“I think [for] young players that’s very, very difficult. It’s Man United we’re talking about.

“Man United should be able to get something better than what they’ve got up front right now.

“In your [Neville’s] time here as a player, would Rashford have played every week on a regular basis? That’s the point I’m making.

“He wouldn’t have played every week, he would have been coming into a team that was firing on all cylinders, doing well, winning trophies and being slowly introduced.

“And I think it’s really unfair on him at 21, or 20 last year, being asked to be the main man at Man United.

“The reality is, from this moment on with the transfer window gone, they’re asking Rashford at 21 to be the main striker at this football club.

“He got 10 goals I think from 33 games last year, it’s not enough for United.

“All the pressure is on his young shoulders.”
