Louis Saha believes Marcus Rashford is the most important player for Man United’s Champions League bid.

Manchester United’s struggles have been pretty evident this season. From a change in manager to underperforming players all over the field, the Red Devils just haven’t been good enough in too many aspects.

Ralf Rangnick’s side are showing glimmers of their full capabilities, though the Old Trafford club find themselves some way off the pace in the hunt for a Champions League berth.

There’s a lot of work ahead, starting with a massive home game against West Ham United tomorrow. Win that and we’ll suddenly be looking in far better shape.

Well, one ex-Man United star in the form of Louis Saha believes Marcus Rashford holds the key to that. He stated that the club ‘can achieve anything’ if the 24-year-old can get back to his best.

Speaking with Genting Casino, Saha said:

“I think United can qualify for the Champions League with this squad.

“They have winners. They have talented players and they have to fight.

“They have to really believe. I think when three or four of United’s big players click at the same time and, if Marcus Rashford can come back to his level, they can achieve anything.”

I think it is down to the leaders of this team to carry everyone else through these tough times. Rashford is undoubtedly one of the most important figures in this side.

His goal against Brentford on Wednesday was a massive boost for his confidence and I do hope that this signals a return to his absolute best. We’re going to need a fully fit and firing Rashford providing a genuine threat from that left-hand side from now until the end of the season.

I do like the fact that we’ve seen a formation change that definitely benefits him and the other attackers. The 4-3-3 system with two wingers, and Bruno Fernandes in the middle, definitely gets the best out of our whole squad, including Rashford.

You know what you’re going to get out of Cristiano Ronaldo week-in-week-out. It’s down to United’s other stars to step up to the plate when we need them the most.

Is Saha right about Marcus Rashford? Let us know your thoughts in the comment box below.
