Manchester United Football Club have always had a rich history when it comes to promoting youth and giving up and coming stars a chance.
Arguably the biggest success story? Ryan Giggs. The Welsh Wizard etched his name in football folklore a few years ago, becoming the all-time appearance leader for the Old Trafford club.
Giggsy is now Wales manager, but that hasn’t stopped him keeping a keen eye on his former employers. He has given his take on the Marcus Rashford situation, amidst some media outlets suggesting that the young striker should depart from the Theatre of Dreams in order to earn more playing time…
“He’s a Manchester United player, he’s from Manchester and he plays a lot of games so I don’t see why there is speculation,” Giggs told MEN Sport.
“He scored a couple of goals for England, but that doesn’t mean anything. He’s at the right club, United have a rich history of playing young players, so I’m not sure why all these people are debating whether he should leave.”
This is the exact reaction I thought he’d have. I just find it daft that after he scores a couple of goals for England then all these rumours start up again. It must be so frustrating for Jose Mourinho, and I completely understand why he hit back at the press in such blatant fashion last week.
Rashford will get his opportunities, make no mistake about it. Right now he’s currently suspended for two more games domestically, but don’t be surprised to see him involved when United take on Young Boys this coming Wednesday.
