Romelu Lukaku Gave Compliment To Marcus Rashford

Romelu Lukaku Gave Compliment To Marcus Rashford

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.

Sam Allardyce: I Think Rashford Can’t Play For A Long Time

A prediction given by Sam Allardyce regarding Marcus Rashford’s career. The former England coach considered the young Manchester United striker would be difficult to play at the highest level for a long time.

Rashford itself is one of the successful products of the Manchester United academy. He made his debut in the first team when he was 18 years old, and since then he has regularly appeared in attacking Manchester United.

Not only being a mainstay in Manchester United, Rashford is also a mainstay in the England national team. Even when he was 18 years old, he was taken to Euro 2016 by Roy Hodgson, where to this day he is still actively defending The Three Lions.

In the eyes of Big Sam, if this condition continued, Rashford could have a chance to retire after being young. “With his current condition, I feel it is very difficult for him to play until the age of 30,” Allardyce told Talk Sports.

In his analysis, Allardyce assessed that Rashford had too many playing portions, so he did not have time to rest and that would have an effect on his career.

“This condition is due to physical and psychological and mental demands that make him experience extreme fatigue. If this condition continues, he only has about 3 weeks in a year on vacation.”

“He will play in all corners of the world because currently there is no such thing as pre-season anymore. He will play for the national team in the summer and he only has about 3 weeks to rest.”

Allardyce assesses that if Rashford continues to get this burden continuously, then he will be difficult to maintain his body condition in his 30s so he has the potential to retire early.
