It is not a surprise that Manchester United have always been producing some of the best talent in the world, but the success they eventually attain has not been one to applaud.
While some names have flopped big time and some like Paul have come back to prove themselves, there is one name that still hangs in the balance of greatness and misfit.
Marcus Rashford set the footballing world on fire when LVG introduced him against Arsenal in the Europa League a few seasons ago, and since then, he’s been one of the brightest talents the Old Trafford faithful have seen come out of the club’s ranks.
This season, however, has not been an ideal one for the youngster, and with 8 starts in 13 games and 90 minutes completed only twice, game time has been a luxury that’s proved tough to afford for the attacker.
The 21-year-old has found it difficult to gain Mourinho’s trust with a regular starting role, and the manager’s public remarks seem to have damaged the player’s confidence big time.
While speaking to the BBC Football Daily podcast recently, Ian Wright gave his views on the young Englishman and why success is still far away from him.
Wright stated: “I believe he’s a striker – he’s a number nine. He’s got great movement, great pace. When he first came on the scene he was finishing chances.
“Now, because he’s on the wing, he’s not involved as much and not getting as many chances as he should. He’s looking a little bit more hesitant. I feel for him that respect.”
