Ever since Manchester United appointed Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as their full-time boss, the Norweigan has been walking on thin water, with the team struggling to compete at the highest level yet again.

So, now that Tottenham shockingly parted ways with Mauricio Pochettino, it looks like the Red Devils have reignited their interest in the Argentinean boss as Solskjaer's replacement.

However, Marcus Rashford thinks there isn't a better guy for the job than Solskjaer, as he claimed that he took a major part in the contract extension he signed on July, even amid the rumored interest from Barcelona and Real Madrid:

"There was no hesitation from me over signing a new contract. And it was the same for Ole as well – I could see where his head was at, where he wanted the club to be at and for me, it was just a no-brainer. We were on the same page and wanted the same things for the club. Ole is a great guy and he has the club's interests at heart so there's not a better person for the job in my opinion," the striker told Sky Sports News.

Nonetheless, Rashford is aware of the fact that the team must win a trophy this season or else it will be a huge failure, even if they end up making it to the top-4 and clinching a spot in next year's UEFA Champions League.

"It's been a while. If we come out of this season with the top four but without a trophy, I wouldn't be happy. If we manage to get some trophies and get ourselves into the top four then, of course, it has been a successful season.

For me, it is just about putting markers down for what we can do in the future because we know that this period is not going to change overnight, Ole's not going to get what he wants overnight. We have to bide our time and just be patient, as long as we keep working hard and believe in what we are doing – which I think the team does 100 percent – then I think we will be fine," Rashford concluded.

The Red Devils will have the chance to win the UEFA Europa League, FA Cup or Carabao Cup to avoid going empty-handed again, as the English Premier League is already pretty much out of reach.
