Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has warned his star forwards ahead of their Europa League finals.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has warned Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial against self interest as the two forwards battle to end the season as Manchester United’s top goal scorer.

The two strikers have been crucial to United’s success this season and will aim to continue their recent form in the new look Europa League competition which will be played over one-legged ties in Germany.

United booked their place in the last eight with a comfortable win against LASK, with Martial scoring off the bench to seal the second-leg win. In doing so, the Frenchman overtook Rashford [22] to become United’s leading goal scorer for the season [23].

It was suggested on the match commentary that Rashford wouldn’t be pleased with remaining on the bench while his teammate took the lead in the scoring charts, but the England international stressed on Twitter that no such rivalry was present. He wrote: « Tony wins, I win, we all win. That’s my guy. »

Competition between Liverpool’s star forwards Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane spilled over on to the pitch last season and Solskjaer is eager to avoid such confrontation between his striking duo.

« There’s no battle between them, » he told reporters. « You see how Anthony and Marcus play together — they are always willing to give each other the gift of an open goal.

« For me, there can never be a battle between players within a team. We have one common cause: to win.

« If I ever sense players playing for themselves, their own accolades and personal awards, I won’t have them in the team. It’s simple.

« I don’t want egos. It can’t be about one player thinking he is going to score more goals than someone else. If you win as a team, it doesn’t matter if you have scored 15 goals or 30. It only matters that you have contributed.

« Ruud van Nistelrooy was very focused on his goals. He’d come off miserable after a 4-0 win if he hadn’t scored. But he was a team player. You never saw Ruud take a shot when he should have passed. »
