Manchester United interim manager Ralf Rangnick believes that forward Marcus Rashford must take steps to regain his confidence. Rashford was named on the bench against Leicester City despite both Cristiano Ronaldo and Edinson Cavani both failing to make the squad. Rashford came off the bench in the 55th minute after Bruno Fernandes started the game in a False 9 position. He made little impact during his time on the pitch with United again dropping points.
“Marcus, it’s no secret that he is not having his best time right now. It has to do with rhythm and confidence, it’s our job to help him to get this confidence back,” Ralf Rangnick said about Marcus Rashford. “The only thing we can do is speak to him regularly and tell him what we expect from him and what he should do. The rest has to be done by himself. It is possible to develop within a couple of weeks a level of confidence where you can be a different player again. We all know that Marcus can play better, but in the end, he has to take the steps himself.”
“I’m looking at Rashford now and this is a young man who I believe has to go and explore and do something else. He looks like he has fallen out of love with the game right now,” Jamie Redknapp said. “Go and play somewhere as there is no doubt a player in there and for him, there will be hundreds of clubs who want him. He has had enormous success against the likes of Paris Saint-Germain in Europe, clubs in England would want him – Tottenham, Arsenal. But I think his time has run now at Man Utd. Now if Pogba and Rashford cannot get into that Man Utd team, then they do have problems.”
