Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has praised the performance of Marcus Rashford during the weekend’s 0-0 league draw against Liverpool. The England international had sustained an ankle problem within the opening minute of the game but he managed to keep going for the entire 90 minutes with three other teammates suffering hamstring injuries during the first half itself.
Speaking after the game, Ole praised Rashford as a ‘warrior’ after he was able to play the entire game despite a swelling on his ankle, he told Sky Sports: “Marcus is a warrior and he’s a Manc and he knows what this game means. We had to keep him on, because we already had to make three subs. It seemed like it was their plan, to just kick him, because they kept kicking him from the first minute. If that’s not an accumulation of fouls I don’t know. But he stayed on. His ankle is like a balloon, so it was a fantastic attitude by him. He’s angry, because of how many fouls they did on him.”
