Manchester United’s Marcus Rashford, 25, signed an extension in July. His £325,000-a-week wages will keep him at the club until the summer of 2028.
He was United’s future. And with Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) in the hunt. United were delighted with the signing. Rashford was happy, too. It seemed like a perfect win-win.
However, this is his worst form of the season. He’s scored just one goal in 13 games this season.
He scored 17 goals in 35 EPL games last season and 30 goals in 56 games overall.
The UK’s Daily Mail headlined “What the hell has happened to Marcus Rashford. He’s been poor all season.
United manager Eric ten Hagg said, “We have to give him the benefit of the doubt. I firmly believe he will score a lot of goals again.
The Daily Mail said, “Overall, United have underperformed this season. It would be grossly unfair to say that Rashford is the only one who has struggled,” but added: “Rashford has 34 shots on target this season. That’s second only to Manchester City’s Elling Holland.
Of those 34 shots, only seven have been on target. That’s an effective shot rate of just 20.6%.
That’s the third-lowest percentage among players with 20 or 토토사이트 more shots in the EPL. Only Luton Town’s Carlton Morris (17.4%) and Liverpool’s Luis Diaz (20%) are more inaccurate in front of goal than Rashford.
Jamie Carragher told Sky Sports that ‘if the team doesn’t play well, Rashford won’t play like he did last season’.
He added: “I’ve always said the same thing about Rashford. He’s not world class, he’s below that. If United want to win a league title or a European trophy, Rashford is not good enough.
