Manchester United Football Club have always been known as a team that produces and nurtures young talents. The latest one coming off their conveyor belt is none other than Marcus Rashford; a supremely talented forward.
The striker really burst onto the scene under Louis van Gaal last season, when he was scoring goals for fun including a brace against Arsenal and the winner in the Manchester derby.
This season has been somewhat different for the 19-year-old, though, as Jose Mourinho has tended to use Zlatan Ibrahimovic as the main striker. That has led to a really reduction in goals output from Rashford, as he’s often been deployed out on the left-wing.
Now, the former Manchester United man Ryan Giggs has had his say on the whole situation, and told him what he must do to improve as a player whilst he isn’t scoring.
“He’s a threat, he’s a talent, but one thing I would say is that when he’s not scoring he needs to mix his game up a little bit,” said Giggs, as per the Daily Mirror.
“More one-twos, laying it off, because at the moment he’s getting the ball and taking players on, but you can’t do that every time.”
“Keep the defender guessing, because he has got everything, he can run in behind with or without the ball.”
To be quite honest, I thought his link-up play for England as they took on Lithuania last night was pretty good. On the whole, the man from Wythenshawe really impressed with some brilliant passes and intelligent runs.
Obviously, Rashford is still very young and learning. Over time, he’ll get better, but every little bit of advice will help him improve. Giggs will always be one of the most iconic Manchester United legends, and Rashford should definitely take his advice on board and look to keep growing as a player.
