Manchester United manager stands in solidarity with struggling forward Rashford

Posted : 26 April 2024

Erik ten Hag expressed his solidarity with Marcus Rashford, acknowledging the challenging phase the Manchester United forward is enduring. Despite Rashford's prolific performance last season, where he scored 30 goals and secured a contract extension until 2028, his current form has significantly declined.


This season, he has struggled to replicate his previous success, scoring only eight goals in 40 appearances for the club. The dissatisfaction reached a crescendo when fans booed him during the recent FA Cup semifinal match against Coventry.


Rashford's response to criticism has been defiant, as he emphasized the importance of support in a Players' Tribune article. However, he also addressed the harsh treatment he has endured, labeling it as "abuse" that has persisted for months.


Erik ten Hag echoed Rashford's sentiments, expressing empathy for the player's situation during a press conference. He highlighted Rashford's exceptional abilities demonstrated in the previous season and emphasized the need for collective support to help him regain his form.


Despite Rashford's absence due to injury, Manchester United faces Burnley with depleted defensive options. Ten Hag humorously admitted that he does not expect to have his regular center-backs available for the upcoming match, except for Mason Mount's return to the squad. The defensive challenges persist with key players like Victor Lindelof, Raphael Varane, and others still sidelined.


In the interim, Casemiro is expected to continue as a makeshift center-back. However, Ten Hag remains optimistic about the return of sidelined players like Luke Shaw, Anthony Martial, and Lisandro Martinez for the crucial run-in, including the FA Cup final against Manchester City.
