Marcus Rashford has been labelled ‘unstoppable’ by ex-pro Glen Johnson.
Manchester United Football Club are slowly getting back to their best under Erik ten Hag, though this will be a long, drawn-out process.
The Old Trafford side need many years to reach the required level, with money also an absolute necessity. United can save themselves plenty of cash by using their excellent academy system, with the likes of Marcus Rashford and Scott McTominay leading the way.
Rashford, a homegrown hero, had his own struggles over the last twelve to eighteen months, but he’s looking sharp under Ten Hag.
Now, ex-pro Glen Johnson, who is now a pundit, was talking about how he’d set England up over in Qatar. He was full of praise for Rashford, claiming that the 24-year-old can be ‘unstoppable’ when he’s back at his best.
It’s hard to disagree. A fully fit and firing Rashford is an absolute joy to behold. Goals, assists, directness, and work ethic. The young man has it all.
Check out what Glen Johnson had to say on Marcus Rashford here:
“Harry Kane obviously has to start. So does Sterling. I’d probably go with Rashford as my third attacker,” Johnson told Genting Casino.
“I’m a big fan of him and once he fully gets back to his best, he’s unstoppable. Sometimes when his confidence is down, he takes the easy option. He’s rapid, got a great strike on him, it’ll probably surprise people but I’d go for him.
“Rashford, Sterling and Kane would be my starting three at the World Cup, but you have incredible strength in depth. Someone else could choose a different front three and it would be hard to have any arguments”
It’s undoubtedly a relief for Rashford to look so sharp under Ten Hag after struggling for so long. Injuries absolutely didn’t help the situation for the Three Lions striker, but he was also super-low on confidence.
Sadly for Rashford, he’s also picked up a minor issue that has meant a lack of Three Lions call-up this time around, but time is now starting to begin to run out. These are the last friendlies before Gareth Southgate will name his World Cup squad.
The good news is that the problem isn’t thought to be a long-term one, with Rashford expected to be fit enough to take on Manchester City in the derby upon the return of domestic football in just over a week’s time.
