Marcus Rashford is a key component of Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag’s intentions to make the team the “greatest club in the world,” and Hag pushed Rashford to continue playing for Old Trafford so that he may realize his goals and become the best player he can be.
United’s most recent victory in the Premier League came in 2013, and the club has not been victorious in a major tournament since it lifted the Europa League title in 2017. Although it is the greatest trophy drought they have had in the last 40 years, there have been hints of development under Ten Hag’s leadership.
Rashford, who is 25 years old and plays forward for England, has been a significant contributor to his team’s recent success. Since England’s return from the World Cup, Rashford has scored nine goals in nine games, bringing his total for all competitions to 17.
Ten Hag said to the press, “I believe he recognizes that Manchester United is his club.” “But in addition to that, he is playing the finest football of his career in this setting and with this club.
“He can contribute his talents, and this team can assist him in getting into the appropriate position and scoring goals. He is aware of the significance that he has for us.
We must have him if we are to achieve the success that we want.
Rashford’s original contract was set to expire in 2023; however, after interest from Ligue 1 winners Paris Saint-Germain in December, United exercised an option to extend it by one year, bringing the new expiration date to 2024.
Ten Hag said, “I hope that all of our players receive attention from clubs because that means we do a good job, the team is outperforming, therefore that is what we are striving for.” “I hope that all of our players get interested from clubs because that means we do a good job, the team is outperforming,”
“I would argue that here is the greatest place to be because we want to develop the best team, first in England, then in Europe, and finally in the world,” said the manager. “This is the best place to be because we want to make the best squad.”
In the first leg of the League Cup semi-final, which will take place later on Wednesday, United will play at Nottingham Forest.
