Solskjaer dismisses misleading Rashford report.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has dismissed misleading reports that he wants Marcus Rashford to prioritise his football over the inspiring charity work which we are all so incredibly proud of.

The manager feels he was misunderstood when speaking last Friday about the Academy graduate’s return from injury, following a lengthy period of rehabilitation on a shoulder problem.

At the start of a press conference today to preview the team's Champions League group-stage game against Atalanta, Solskjaer moved quickly to dismiss that story, with Marcus seated alongside him. 

“Good afternoon, boys. Just to get the elephant out of the room straight away, we know the headlines that came after the Leicester game,” the manager told reporters before a question was asked. “We are so unbelievably proud of what Marcus has done on and off the pitch. 

“You know what I said and you made a headline out of one little comment that I never intended to be the focus of what I was saying. I was saying it must be nice for the boy to focus on going into training and not feeling his ankle, or his shoulder or his back. 

“Now he can just go and enjoy his football, and I think you all know that. So, there are no more questions on that one, or you can ask Marcus about it, but I just wanted to start with that one to get it out of the way”.
