And Solskjaer sees no reason why Rashford can not live up to the standards set by his England team-mate Kane, who will likely lead the line for Tottenham at Wembley on Sunday as they take on United in the Premier League. He is a fantastic goalscorer and one of the best in the world but I have got a couple that I am happy to work with.
"It's going to be very hard because I think the teams above them are quite consistent", the former United winger added. To see him every day is massive. It's like having the big book of Larousse (an encyclopedia), like a dictionary. It was a book where you find everything. "He is like an encyclopaedia of football".
This is a wonderfully illuminating piece from Ducker - one of the best United journalists out there - which details the way in which Solskjaer, through little more than practical man-management, has reversed the tide of despair cast by Mourinho.
"I was there when he scored", said Pochettino. If we're talking about extending a contract or giving more money, you need to be careful. "We were in a very bad place and started to walk, we crossed and jumped, up, up and up, and we arrived at the President's (box) and found two seats". Because in that moment we were neutral.
With Tottenham third in the league 10 points clear of sixth-placed United and in the title race, the days when Ferguson coule tell his players "It's only Spurs" when the sides met are over.
Pochettino has of course been strongly linked with taking over at Manchester United next the summer following the sacking of Jose Mourinho last month, with the Argentine's philosophy of playing attractive football and developing players seeming to line up perfectly with the heritage of this weekend's visitors.
"Daniel is not an easy person to do business with", Pochettino said.
"You have to give him credit because when he came here 16 years ago Tottenham was a completely different club".
