Marcus Rashford

Man United teammates reveal Marcus Rashford’s nickname after Europa League winner

Rashford to the rescue

Marcus Rashford was Manchester United’s hero on Thursday night, helping the Red Devils qualify for the Europa League semi-final.

The teenager followed up his goal against Chelsea with an extra-time winner against Anderlecht. With the tie level 2-2 on aggregate, Rashford gave United the lead in the 107th minute.

Rashford is likely to have a big part to play in the remainder of Man United’s season following Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s knee injury on Thursday night.

The Kid

Following the game, a number of players tweeted at their joy of reaching the competition’s last four.

Juan Mata and Michael Carrick took to Twitter and revealed their nickname for Rashford.

 

Winning the Europa League looks to be Man United’s best chance of qualifying for next season’s Champions League.

The draw for the Europa League semi-final takes place on Friday afternoon.
