It’s no surprise that Marcus Rashford of Manchester United keeps attracting admirers to himself since he debuted for the Reds with fireworks that has never stopped exploding.
Cesc Fabregas from Chelsea has been applauded by Old Trafford faithfuls as an honest gentleman. The Spaniard recently expressed his admiration for Marcus who he described as being “on fire” in 2016.
Cesc had a chat with Sky Sports:
“He’s on fire at the moment. I really like the kid.
“I’ve watched him play a few times now since he’s come through and I really like his intelligence, his desire to be in the box, his movement and how he loses his defender. Also in his open play he’s been very very good.”
As Louis van Gaal’s men face a shameful exit from next years Champions League qualification which will make it the second time in three years, it might be a burden Marcus Rashford will have to carry on his shoulders – with the hope that other team-mates realize it’s now or never.
The 18-year-old Rashford has been at his best since making his debut in February. He recently netted Manchester United’s winning goal in the 1-0 victory over Aston Villa last weekend.
Rashford is reaping the fruits of his hard work. The injury crisis which sidelined both Wayne Rooney and Anthony Martial, has been a blessing to the player. He grabbed his chance with open hands when he netted a brace that sent Manchester United into the last 16 of the Europa League back in February.
As a reward, the young star has retained his place in the starting XI despite Rooney’s recent return to fitness. He is also said to have received a call-up from England against the up-coming Euro 2016.
Marcus Rashford’s winning goal against Aston Villa on Saturday completed his goal tally at 7 goals in 13 appearances in all competitions for the promising youngster.
He is reported to earn £5,000 for every first team appearance for the club and a £1,500 per week in wages.
The Man U star is currently any defender’s nightmare. Former Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher showered praises on him this week for his movement off the ball.
Marcus has scored four goals out of 5 shots on target in the Premier League and that’s awesome.
Manchester United hosts Crystal Palace on Wednesday night so it is expected to be another magical night for the Red Devils.
