Marcus Rashford told to “go away” from Man United by Old Trafford legend



| Last Updated:


Former Manchester United player Paul Ince has told Marcus Rashford to “go away” from United for the betterment of his career.

Rashford, 26, has had a mixed season for the Red Devils. Frequently forced to be the senior player in a frontline filled with the younger Antony, Rasmus Hojlund, and Alejandro Garnacho, Rashford has visibly struggled throughout the campaign.

These struggles have seen Rashford linked with a move to PSG this summer, with the French giants preparing for life without Kylian Mbappe. Such a move is one Ince believes Rashford would be wise to consider.

With seven goals this season, Rashford is currently the club’s joint-top scorer in the Premier League, sharing that accolade with Hojlund and Scott McTominay.

Yet, with Rashford failing to score in 74% of his Premier League matches this season, the forward has failed to show the same levels he reached last season, where he scored 30 goals in all competitions for the club.

According to Ince this drop in form can be attributed to a lack of confidence from Rashford, something Ince believes he will only be able to fix by leaving the club.

“If Marcus Rashford played in our time you wouldn’t see the Marcus Rashford you see now,” Stated the former United midfielder when speaking on Upfront with Simon Jordan. “Who are the leaders in that changing room? Who can Marcus Rashford go to? Who can he look to?

“You saw him last year when he was ‘unbelievable’. What’s changed from last year? People talk about what he’s done outside football, that’s done and dusted, that’s done now. He still scored 20-odd goals last season. 

“What’s changed from last season to this year? What’s gone wrong? Because he looks out of sorts, he looks lacking in confidence. Marcus Rashford, like Jesse Lingard, I personally think he needs to go away. He needs another challenge. I honestly believe that.”
