Erik ten Hag explains why Marcus Rashford is flourishing with Manchester United

Marcus Rashford has been in excellent form for Manchester United this season.

After several years of struggle, Marcus Rashford has returned to his best this season.

The forward has scored 13 and assisted six for Manchester United in 2022/23.

He also netted three times for England despite only starting one match at the 2022 World Cup.

And with Cristiano Ronaldo now gone, Manchester United will be relying even more heavily on Rashford to perform in the second half of 2022/23.

Now, after scoring one and assisting two in  Manchester United’s 3-1 win over Everton on Friday, Erik ten Hag has explained why Rashford is flourishing this season:

“It is himself [the reason why he is flourishing this season]. He has the skills, I am supporting him, I am motivating him, that is clear.

“I think I put him on the right position on the pitch, but to be fair he can play across the whole frontline and in some cases behind. We can use him also as a tactical weapon, and he is scoring from every position.

“If he keeps this focus, I am convinced he will score even more goals. If he keeps investing in training, investing in the games, I’m sure - I’m convinced - he can keep the goals coming in this run.”
