Marcus Rashford sends perfect message to Louis van Gaal following retirement

Year-on-year, Marcus Rashford is improving. The young Englishman is now amongst the hottest properties in world football – and for Manchester United, he’s one of our own.

It wasn’t that long ago when the Wythenshawe-born-forward was playing reserve and youth team football, but, we forget that it was Louis van Gaal who gave him an opportunity.

An injury to Anthony Martial meant that Rashford was thrown into the line-up to take on FC Midtjylland. The striker would score a brace, then back that up by hitting another double against Arsenal just a few days later.

His legacy had begun. From then, Rashford has gone from strength-to-strength. He’s now shining under Ole Gunnar Soslkjaer while also winning a few trophies along the way. It all comes back to Van Gaal showing belief and trust in him. For that, the striker is grateful.

After Van Gaal anounced his retirement, it didn’t take Rashford long to post a tweet to the Iron Tulip; and what a classy one it was.

This is just brilliant to see. Rashford appreciates that he would’t be where he’s at now without Van Gaal – who is an immensely underappreciated manager, by the way.

I always thought he got a raw deal of it at United but that’s football I guess. Anyway, Louis, enjoy your retirement!
