'How Martial & Rashford Can Emulate Ronaldo'

Having first-hand witnessed Cristiano Ronaldo's evolution into a world-beater, Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has revealed what Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford need to do to emulate the former Real Madrid superstar.
 
 
The Norwegian tactician is currently enjoying an eight-match unbeaten streak across all competitions, after taking over the reins from Jose Mourinho, who was sacked in December 2018 following a string of poor results.
 
Key to United's turnaround in form has been the presence of Martial and Rashford, who have netted 19 goals between them in all competitions. 
 
Despite showering praise on the attacking duo, Solskjaer has called for England and France internationals to improve their sharpness in front of goal if they are to reach the level of the Juventus forward.
 
"That [emulating Ronaldo] is up to any player if you make a decision on how to develop your own career," he was quoted as saying by Squakwa Football.
 
"Cristiano was the best, the way he's changed to now. That's part of any player, you've got to model yourself on someone, but you've got to have more challenges ahead of you and for Marcus and Anthony it is to score more simple tap-ins.
 
"He [Martial] has the capability [to score 20 goals in a season] but I'd like him to make a few more runs in behind, because he doesn't miss chances, he's a fantastic finisher.
 
"He needs to get more chances, you've got to read and sniff wherever there's a chance, maybe some scruffy goals at times. Him and Marcus score loads of worldie goals but those tap-ins and making them runs could go a long way to do that."
 
 
The Red Devils occupy sixth position on the Premier League standings, two points behind fourth-placed Arsenal and a massive 16 points behind table-toppers Liverpool.
 
Do you think Martial and Rashford has what it takes to reach Ronaldo's level? Let us know in the comments section below.
