Man Utd boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer not happy with Marcus Rashford’s finishing

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and the club coaches are concerned with Marcus Rashford's finishing.

The Red Devils suffered a setback in their Premier League title hopes after a shock loss to Sheffield United this week.

The Blades managed a 2-1 win at Old Trafford after goals from Kean Bryan and Oliver Burke.

It means Manchester City can stretch their lead over them by four points.

Rashford was one culprit against Sheffield United, having a poor game, along with many others for Solskjaer's side.

And the Norweigan has demanded the England international switch up his style in training, in particular his finishing.

According to ESPN, the Red Devils manager and club coaches are concerned with Rashford in front of goal.

They believe he has become too reliant on one type of finishing, blasting the ball past the goalkeeper.

The report states that coaches are working on his finishing and building a broader repertoire.

Solskjaer, in particular, has been urging Rashford to control his shots better, using the corners of the goal as targets.

The former striker was a master of finishing in his heyday at Old Trafford and wants to pass on some tips.

Sir Alex Ferguson regarded Solskjaer as one of the best natural finishers the club has ever had.

According to official Premier League data, Rashford has had 46 shots, 22 on target, this season.

The 23-year-old has scored seven of those, in 20 league appearances, but his shot percentage is comparable with the likes of Heung-min Son, Harry Kane and Mohamed Salah.

And they are leading the Premier League Golden Boot charge, with the Tottenham pair netting 12 each while the Liverpool forward has 13.

United coaches are desperate for Rashford to start hitting the same heights, though his goal record this season is by no means poor.

He has netted 15 in all competitions, only behind Bruno Fernandes' 16 total – who is the club's top scorer this season.
