Marcus Rashford showed a fine performance in the second half of the 2018/19 season, when he did get plenty of opportunities to play. His slick performance received praise from his teammate, Romelu Lukaku.
Until the 33rd week of the Premier League, Marcus Rashford had scored 10 goals. This is the 21-year player’s best goal in a season since promotion in the Manchester United first team in 2015.
Not only on stage, Marcus Rashford also performed well in the Champions League. He scored two goals for the Red Devils, one goal of which was to ensure his team won 1-3 against PSG in the match at the Parc des Princes. The result that made United qualify for the quarter-finals.
Marcus Rashford is actually a contender for Romelu Lukaku for the center forward position at Manchester United. In the era of Jose Mourinho, Lukaku was the first choice and Rashford was often ‘sacrificed’ by being played as a winger.
However, the situation changed in the era of Ole Gunnar Solksjaer. Lukaku began to sit on the bench and Rashford more often played in the position of the center forward. Despite competing, Lukaku remained amazed by the achievements of the junior.
“To be honest, that is exactly what I hope for, with the quality he has and the work he has done on the field,” Lukaku opened.
“Rashford is a young player with a sane head and he already knows what he wants, so I am really happy with the performance he gave to the team,” continued the Belgian player.
