Man United player’s performance vs Brentford left me “heartbroken”, says pundit

One Manchester United player left Premier League pundit Jamie Redknapp “heartbroken” after the 1-1 draw against Brentford on Saturday evening.

Erik ten Hag’s side were extremely underwhelming in the clash and undeservedly left London with a point.

After an inspiring win against Liverpool before the international break, that performance brought United fans right back down to earth.

Jamie Redknapp, who was on Sky Sports punditry for the game, was frustrated with the approach from the United players and honed in on Marcus Rashford in particular.

The former Liverpool midfielder believes that United’s no.10 has the talent and attributes to be one of the very best wingers, but his application in games like the one on Saturday night is not enough and leaves him “heartbroken”.

“Marcus Rashford is a player with so much talent, God-given talent, he’s got everything. He’s got an incredible physique, he can run, he can dribble, he can shoot, he got 30 goals last year,” he began.

“I look at a player right now, I think he’s on eight goals, seven Premier League, one goal in the FA Cup. He just looks like he’s not enjoying his football. And for me, it’s quite heartbreaking because he’s got so much talent.”

Former United striker Dion Dublin added: “I just want to see more. I want to see him smile, you know. We know Marcus Rashford’s possibly the best player they have in regards to natural talent, and he can do things where he wants to do things.

“I just want Marcus Rashford to be enjoying his football again. I don’t know what’s going on away from football with Marcus, but when I see him on the pitch, I don’t see him smiling enough.

“I want to see him enjoying his football again. Because if I see that, then he’ll be tearing it up. Like he did last year. And he’ll be scoring goals, and he’ll be the best down the left-hand side in the world, which he can be.”
