Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer seemed pleased with Marcus Rashford’s performance and hinted that he might have a new role in the future.
The young Englishman initially appeared on the scene as a striker before finally being transferred to the role of the left.
In an effort to bring Edinson Cavani into Top XI without sacrificing Anthony Martial, Solskjaer recently decided to move Rashford to the right flank.
This is a role he has rarely played, but it feels like a solution to having all of United’s best strikers in the same squad.
This means Mason Greenwood is losing, but fans largely don’t mind if it means his seniors are fit and shoot.
Solskjær on Rashford playing on the flanks: – He really enjoys this role, really good and he certainly poses a side threat to us – penetration, crossing, finishing. I am very happy with Marcus there. #mulive [mu]

Rashford could potentially become a right winger if needed, but his lack of positional discipline showed the game dragged on.
The sensational striker made the same mistake as Juan Mata or Greenwood played on this side of the field in the sense that he drifted too often.
He held his width well at the start of the match against PSG before jumping in, but later Rashford would be seen in a similar position to Cavani.
