Marcus Rashford has said that he would like to see Ole Gunnar Solskjaer be handed the Manchester United job on a permanent basis.

The Norwegian has been earning lots of praise for the impact he has had at Old Trafford since taking over as interim boss following the sacking of Jose Mourinho back in December.

Manchester United are currently in the running to finish in the top four this season as Solskjaer looks to try and guide them to Champions League qualification.

The Red Devils’ impressive form in recent weeks has inevitably led to suggestions that Solskjaer could be handed the job on a permanent basis at the end of the season.

And Manchester United striker Rashford, who has been in fine form since Solskjaer’s appointment, feels that there is no reason why the Norwegian shouldn’t take over on a permanent basis at the end of the season.

Speaking in an interview quoted by the Daily Express, Rashford said: “For me, it’s been a massive help having that type of guidance around me.

“But he’s been working with all of the players with everything he’s got, you can see even the defenders are improving, the midfield is improving, the team’s improved overall but we understand we can still take more steps forward.

“He has that know-how, the understanding, that’s the kind of thing you just pick off naturally off these type of people.

“Even not just out on the pitch, having conversations about it, it all adds up. It’s been a big turnaround.

“As long as we keep improving I don’t see why [he shouldn’t get the job permanently].”

Manchester United will return to Premier League action on Wednesday night when they take on Crystal Palace away from home.

They will then host Southampton next weekend as they look to try and keep up their push for a top four finish and Champions League qualification.
