"When they struggled in the summer transfer window, I put a tweet out saying, "Ok, it's not going well but look at all these players at this club" and I listed every single one of them and there's a lot of really, really good players there".
The Daily Star says Rashford is poised to more than double his wages with a £200,000-a-week deal plus bonuses that reflects his status as one of Europe's leading strikers.
Rashford has scored six goals since the former Manchester United striker became their new manager nearly two months ago. And, my god, how it has worked with Rashford, whose goals against Newcastle and Tottenham especially mirrored the kind of goal Solskjaer used to delight in scoring.
And, if Solskjaer is able to navigate the Red Devils past Paris Saint-Germain into the last 16 of the Champions League, as well as finish in the top four of the Premier League (something that seemed impossible just a few months ago), United's top brass may decide that he's done enough to win the job outright.
United's renaissance has sparked hopes of a memorable end to what had been turbulent season.
On the BT Sports show Saturday Morning Savage, the 51-year-old claimed that, if he had been appointed instead of Solskjaer after the sacking of Jose Mourinho, he would've gone on to make the same impact.
Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino and former Real Madrid chief Zinedine Zidane were the bookmakers' top contenders following Mourinho's exit.
"At the moment he deserves it".
"I remember him as a player, against Chelsea".
This means that the Norwegian has the upper hand when it comes to the inner workings of the club, meaning that he could get on with things straight away when he took over from Mourinho. He was a fantastic player.
'We are back to winning ways now and that's the way it should be. "His career's open, and I wish him all the best".
