Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford opens up about the team’s struggle after being accused of apathetic performances

Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford gave an interview to Premier League Productions (h/t Mirror) as the forward is facing stern accusations for not putting complete effort into the team.

The 25-year-old is playing his 9th season as the first-team player for the Red Devils after fully establishing himself.

Rashford was the leading goal scorer for United last season, with 30 goals and 11 assists in 56 appearances across all competitions.

The English international told Premier League Productions (h/t Mirror) about the importance of one good result and consistency that can follow. He said:

“One good result, one good performance, can be a game-changer at this club. It’s a difficult position and I’m not as happy as I’d like to be, but there’s only one way to get back this happiness is to seek results. We know the effect that a victory can have on the team and then it’s up to the players to show consistency. That’s what we lacked.”

Former England player Stuart Pearce blasted Rashford after the United’s 4-3 loss to Bayern Munich in the Champions League. Pearce said that the 25-year-old tracks back like “he has a fridge on his back”.

The former Nottingham Forest player criticized the rest of the United team for “giving up” too easily. Pearce further said that United were off the pace and were lucky as Bayern were not clinical enough.

Former United defender Paul Parker was also very critical of Rashford’s underwhelming contribution and team effort.

Rashford has scored one goal for the Red Devils out of six games in the Premier League so far this season.

We think Rashford relies too much on cutting inside from the left flank to shoot, making him predictable for the opponents. The Englishman can also do more off the ball when the team needs him to track back. Hopefully, Rashford will add to his game by taking this criticism constructively and getting his scoring form back as well.
