Marcus Rashford recalled that he is ‘one of the best players’ at Man Utd as iconic former striker Ten Hag advises


Marcus Rashford only needs to be reminded of his importance to Manchester United to rediscover his best form, said Dwight Yorke.

Rashford went through a rough time in the 2021-2022 season. After missing a penalty for England in the Euro 2020 final, he scored just four Premier League goals from 25 matches in the competition.

It was the lowest single season total of his career to date. Even when he was a rising teenager in his first few years as a professional, he succeeded more.

only 24 left, now it’s up to Rashford to show what he’s really capable of† A Man Who Still Believes He Can Succeed Manchester United is the club’s former striker, Yorke.

Indeed, the 50-year-old believes Rashford remains one of the club’s best players. However, it is up to new manager Erik ten Hag to convince him of this.

Yorke told ManUtd.com: “Listen, I’m going to tell you as it is. I am a big fan. As I said, I spent some time in the club and followed the training very closely. Marcus is one of the best players at Manchester United for me.

“As a coach now, a head coach, I would tell him he will play. I remember my time at Aston Villa, when Brian Little came in. I was around 24 and he put his arm around me and said, ‘Listen, you’re my man, my go-to man’.

“When I look at what Rashford brings to the team, he’s a local boy to start with and has been with the club ever since. [he was a kid]† He is very passionate about the club. He’s fast, quick, he can limp past defenders, he can score, he can create.

“I think we have a player there that somehow needs a little love and attention and also needs to hear the right words, since you’re on that team, you’re one of my main guys.”

Yorke added: “I think if Erik can definitely take my advice, and I know he is much more experienced than me, I would because I see a player. I was a player and I see a player in Marcus, a man of enormous talent, enormous talent. Even in training, the kind of stuff he does.

“I’m just amazed he’s not in a good place for some reason and that’s part of the manager’s job, to make sure he gets him back to play the kind of football I know Marcus can produce, it’s just unbelievable.

“What I would do if I were Erik would say to Marcus, you’re my man; let’s get back to work. Show him some confidence and believe in him. I am sure he will produce the goods I know he is capable of.”

Yorke predicts best version of striker

The coming weeks will be important for Rashford to lay claim to a place in Ten Hag’s thinking for next season.

But Yorke firmly believes that Rashford will do well in preseason training and games – and then what will happen in the 2022-23 season.

He concluded: “What Rashford is going through is nothing like what any other player has gone through. He just needs to get his head in order and he also needs to be told that he is very much a part of Manchester United.

“He is ready to rock and roll this season; he looks great and I’ve seen him do little bits in off-season practice, he looked very focused and I see someone determined to do well. He just needs, like I said, a little bit of trust and faith in him.

“I have no doubt that you will probably see the best of Marcus Rashford this season.”

United’s number 10 has so far scored 93 goals from 302 appearances for the club in his career.
