Marcus Rashford: Ten Hag turning Manchester United into killers in front of goal

Marcus Rashford has been full of praise for Erik ten Hag ahead of Manchester United’s next outing.

Marcus Rashford has a rough couple of seasons under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Ralf Rangnick.

However, since Erik ten Hag took the reins, we have seen a much more positive Rashford.

The 25-year-old has scored eight and assisted three in 18 games for Manchester United this season.

His improved form has also earned Rashford an England call-up for the Qatar World Cup.

And now, Rashford has been praising Ten Hag and his ability to let United ‘go for the kill’:

Rashford said: “The manager likes possession football but he is also in favour of letting us go for the kill – and that’s what I am all about. I am enjoying my football again, 100 per cent. The manager has ­created a ­playing style that produces a better quality of chances – and we are ­really playing forward-thinking ­football.

“So I am enjoying my time under him and hopefully we can carry on. The bottom line is that we dropped points at Aston Villa last weekend and we can’t afford to lose back-to-back games. So the game at Fulham is important for us to put in a big performance and get a win.

“It’ll be the last time we play ­together for a while, so it is ­important to leave with good energy, positive vibes and momentum. At the same time, if we don’t play well, you can’t expect to win games – and we have to defend a lot better than we did at Villa.

“We also have to ­attack better and ­create more chances. Hopefully, we can do that.”
