Manchester United legend Sir Alex Ferguson has praised current United striker Marcus Rashford following the team’s victory over Newcastle United in the Carabao Cup final on Sunday. The former United manager highlighted Rashford as the main source of goals for the team and even suggested that the club could benefit from an additional striker to support him.
Rashford has been in fine form for United this season, having already scored 25 goals in all competitions. His performances have been crucial to the team’s success, and Ferguson’s comments only reinforce his importance to the club.
Ferguson, who led United to 13 Premier League titles and two Champions League trophies during his 26-year tenure at the club, has always had a keen eye for talent. His endorsement of Rashford will undoubtedly boost the young striker’s confidence and further motivate him to perform at his best.
However, Ferguson’s suggestion that United could use an extra striker is also noteworthy. While Rashford has been prolific, the team has sometimes struggled to convert chances into goals. Adding another striker to the squad could provide more depth and options for manager Erik ten Hag.
