Rio Ferdinand has suggested Manchester United striker Marcus Rashford will be confused by his lack of game-time this season.
The Englishman came on in the second-half in Man United’s game against Hull City and found the only goal two minutes into injury time.
He was one of the bright sparks in a disappointing season under Louis van Gaal last season and quickly burst onto the scene after scoring in his first-team debut, Premier League debut, first Manchester derby and England debut.
Speaking about his performance, Ferdinand claims Rashford helped change the game for Jose Mourinho’s side.
“He must be sitting there scratching his head thinking how can I have no minutes in the PL in the first three games after what I’ve done over the summer and last season,” he said.
“But it’s a great message to young kids; his head isn’t down, he isn’t sulking. He’s come on with that spark, the bright spark. Him and [Henrikh] Mkhitaryan were the bright spark in the second half that changed the game for Man Utd.”
He has continued to earn plenty of praise and has to knocked down all expectations of himself since the first time we saw him in action in February against FC Midtjylland.
There is no doubting Rashford’s ability and he has started the new season exactly where he left off under Louis van Gal last campaign, as one of the most exciting prospects in football.
