Manchester United manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, has revealed why he lashed out at Marcus Rashford during their 3-2 win at Brighton on Saturday.

Rashford was criticized for a sluggish performance against Crystal Palace last weekend, as they lost 3-1 in their Premier League opener.

Against Brighton, the 22-year-old has an effort ruled out for offside, but still went on to score his first goal of the new season, when he sprinted clear, turned Ben White inside out before smashing the ball past Matt Ryan.

Solskjaer was thrilled to see United’s No.10 get off the mark, but admitted he had to talk to him, after he failed to compete for the ball in a challenge with a Brighton defender midway through the first half.

“He was getting better and better but I had a little bit of a go at him just halfway through the first half for a tackle he evaded.

“But I think his reaction, his sharpness is getting better. He is more direct, his confidence is getting there, he scored a great goal and it was a great run and great finish for the one which was disallowed as well. I think Marcus will really kick on this season,” Solskjaer told Sky Sports after the game.
