Erik ten Hag backs Marcus Rashford amidst PSG links
Speaking in an interview as quoted by popular Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano, Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag has backed Marcus Rashford to succeed at Old Trafford amidst links to PSG and admits being very happy with the English superstar.
Rashford, who has been struggling for form in the past season and a half, was heavily linked with a shock exit to European giants PSG in the summer but Erik ten Hag was always adamant that the player would stay.
The 24-year-old versatile forward ended up staying at Manchester and has slowly yet surely grown into the season under Erik ten Hag. After struggling in the first couple of games, things seemed to be turning around for Rashford.
The talented winger/striker has played six games for the Red Devils, scoring three goals and providing two assists across all competitions. He will be looking to build on this form and make this season count.
Just when he seemed to be hitting top gear, Rashford got injured which could have halted this progress but with Premier League football being halted for almost a month due to a variety of reasons, it has worked out really well for the Englishman.
Back in training, Rashford is fit and ready to face Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City in the derby today. He might not be risked from the start by the Dutch tactician but Rashford could always be brought on as the game progresses.
Speaking about the talented striker’s game, Erik ten Hag revealed being very happy with what he was seeing.
“From day one I was very excited to work with Rashford, I already knew the impact he could have and his potential. He brings that potential onto the pitch and I’m really happy with his development”
People seem to have forgotten how good Marcus Rashford could be. At his best, the 24-year-old is literally unstoppable. He is extremely talented and has the potential to be one of the best players in the Premier League.
