Rashford is back! Healed injuries, gets high from Ten Hag and prepares for a new breakthrough
After three goals at the 2022 World Cup, Marcus Rashford accelerated at the club: in all 6 matches after the resumption of the season, he always scored (and sometimes also added assists to the goals).
And now he scored the winner in the derby against City!
After the departure of Ronaldo, Manchester United was left with the only striker – Anthony Martial. Erik ten Hag admitted that the Frenchman is not enough for all matches , and Manchester United have already entered the market in search of at least a temporary option for the center of attack (the most realistic option is with Wegorst). Therefore, Marcus Rashford has become the main striking force of Manchester United – right now he is the team’s top scorer (15 goals in all tournaments) and second in the list of assistants (5 goals, Eriksen has 8).
But even the special status of the chief sniper does not exempt from disciplinary punishments. Markus started the match against Wolverhampton on the bench – he overslept and was late for the team meeting. Rashford entered the field in the second half, scored two goals (one was canceled) and snatched victory for Manchester United. Ten Hag was pleased with the player’s reaction: “Maybe it’s a risk, but if you want to develop something, create the right attitude to win, you need to go this way.
If players are allowed to be undisciplined, if they do not meet the established standards, values, rules, then it will hit you in the face, because on the field this will not add the discipline necessary for victories. Everyone must follow the rules. Marcus reacted correctly. He played brilliantly, scored – and showed that he took the punishment correctly.”
