Speaking about Marcus Rashford scoring in his fifth consecutive game for Man United, Erik ten Hag said: “It is himself [the reason why he is flourishing this season].
“He has the skills, I am supporting him, I am motivating him, that is clear. I think I put him on the right position on the pitch, but to be fair he can play across the whole front line and in some cases behind.
“We can use him also as a tactical weapon, and he is scoring from every position. If he keeps this focus, I am convinced he will score even more goals.
“If he keeps investing in training, investing in the games, I’m sure – I’m convinced – he can keep the goals coming in this run.”
Rashford has now 12 goals for United this season, the most for any player in the squad.
He’ll hope to continue his goal-scoring heroics ahead of a crucial run of fixtures for United, which include games against Man City and Arsenal later this month.
