Marcus Rashford’s off-pitch charity is well documented and widely celebrated. In front of goal, United’s number 10 aspires to be the ultimate predator.
Under new boss Erik ten Hag, Rashford has caught a second wind and rediscovered his confidence. After United visit Fulham’s Craven Cottage, the England attacker plans to seal his authority in Qatar (via The Daily Mail).
The 25-year-old claimed: “I’m more effective,” adding: “I get into more dangerous positions, and that’s what it’s all about for me because I can help the team win.”
“Every game is about the end product, and I have more of that. When you are a young player, you want to go out on the field and express yourself fully, but the emphasis now is on productivity.”
“The style of play we have created at United has helped me enjoy my football. We think about the future and create better quality opportunities. The manager (Ten Hag) likes possession, but his goal is to kill, and that’s what I do too”.
“It is always an honor to be selected for England. I’m excited, and I hope we can have a good one. Everything is possible with the squad we have”.
Rashford is a central figure in the Red Devils’ resurgence this season.
He gives United both breadth and attacking prowess through the middle.
It is this versatility and set of options offered by the Mancunian that Gareth Southgate wants to exploit for England.
Rashford will want to display the ruthless efficiency he cherishes when he represents the Three Lions in Qatar.
