Rashford & Hegazi: West Brom 1 - Man United 2

Ryan Giggs makes huge statement about Man United star Rashford

Position

Ryan Giggs has cast doubt on the future of Marcus Rashford at the club and claimed he may not get enough playing time under Jose Mourinho.

Giggs has also backed the fans this week, when Mourinho claimed they needed to be louder, and it seems he has a rather strong opinions and has no issue with sharing them.

He thinks Lukaku is Mourinho’s main man, and now there is also Alexis Sanchez to contend with as well, and all of this could hinder the development of Rashford.

He said to Sky Sports: “The main problem for Rashford is his best position is as a striker and it doesn’t look as though he’s going to get in ahead of Lukaku. 

“He was very good in that position against Yeovil but ultimately he’s not going to get as many goals over a season as Lukaku.

“However, I can’t see Rashford looking at his future at the moment. He’ll get enough games across the four competitions, but the issues are when he isn’t involved in the big games.

“When I first came into the team there were two places for three players – me, Lee Sharpe and Andrey Kanchelskis. 

“So I was just thinking that when I get minutes I have to prove myself.”

Mourinho

There’s no doubt Mourinho as a manager is someone who demands the most of the players he works with and the board of said club – and won’t hesitate to ask for more money if the players he has aren’t living up to his expectations.

That has been the case so far at the club – and it seems that he may well do the same thing again in the summer, with Ed Woodward expecting to once again be getting out his negotiating hat and putting more money behind the United boss.
