David de Gea: Marcus Rashford can make Manchester United history

by Tanveer Arayan

David De Gea has backed Marcus Rashford to make history at Manchester United following his “unbelievable” breakthrough onto Louis van Gaal‘s first-team.

He scored the only goal of the game in Saturday’s 1-0 victory over Aston Villa at Old Trafford and has now scored seven goals in 12 appearances since his debut in February.

Rashford is in line to start in next week’s FA Cup semi-final against Everton at Wembley which is our best opportunity to end a three year wait without silverware and De Gea hopes he is able to continue his spectacular form.

“It’s unbelievable, no?’ he said.

“This player is really young and he’s scored many goals.

“Hopefully, for many years, he’ll be in this club and can make history for the club as well. He’s a shy guy, he is a really good lad and a good team-mate. He’s a really good guy.’

It’s great to see the Mancunian born lads flourish at Man United this season. Rashford in particular has blown everybody’s expectations right out of the water and looks like the real deal, with his goal against West Ham in the FA Cup last week probably being the pick of the bunch so far.

With Wayne Rooney now available again, Louis van Gaal is likely to rotate and Rashford definitely needs a rest. We can’t be playing an 18-year-old every single week, it’s too much too soon. Van Gaal has been rightly criticised this term but he deserves credit for placing his faith in the youngsters and guiding the likes of Rashford and Timothy Fosu-Mensah onto the senior side.

Some of our greatest ever players have been bred through our own academy and hopefully Rashford will follow in their footsteps and build on his breathtaking start.
