Bryan Robson: Marcus Rashford needs to grab more goals

Manchester United legend Bryan Robson has urged Marcus Rashford to grab more goals in order to turn into a ‘top-class’ player.

The youngster had a meteoric rise at the start of his career with things now fizzling out a bit as he attempts to grind his way to the top once again.

The academy product’s dream was always going to end at one point or the other but he still remains an important part of the United squad.

Robson has called on Rashford to go one step further and return to his goalscoring ways in order to level up in a way.

Although it feels as though the Englishman has been around the first team forever, he’s actually just turned 21 years old.

According to the club’s official website, Bryan said: “I think you always want to improve and better yourself. Marcus is in a great position, he’s been in the first-team squad for over three years now.

“You can see him maturing, he’s building his stamina and strength, and he’s looking really good and sharp at the moment.

“With Marcus just turning 21 – happy birthday, Marcus! – he’s going in the right direction.

“The only thing I would like to see is his finishing just being that little bit better, where we get Marcus up to something like 20 or 30 goals in a season, whether he’s playing out wide or through the middle.

“He’s adapted really well, because he has been playing wide as a player for quite some time now – he hasn’t had too many chances through the middle as a centre-forward.

“But I think it educates you as a player and Marcus is definitely going the right way to be a top-class player for Manchester United over the years ahead.”

Jose Mourinho is also clearly a manager who rates Rashford highly and so he is in the perfect place to develop his career further.

The striker is certainly in the age group when players tend to be inconsistent though there’s no doubting he isn’t being used to the best of his talents.

Marcus can definitely make an impact out wide but it’s clear to see he’s best as a striker and could even do with a partner in crime up front.
