Rashford Warns His Team Man United As They Qualify For Europa League Knockout Rounds

Manchester United striker, Marcus Rashford, has warned that the team has to be more ruthless, after they sealed their place in the Europa League knockout stage with two games to spare.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side beat Partizan Belgrade 3-0 on Thursday night to progress.

Rashford could have had a hat-trick in the first half, but had to wait until just after the restart to score.

Speaking to BT Sport afterwards, he said: “I think it was a good performance but there are things we can improve on.

“There were a couple of times where I was half a yard too forward, so it was a game of fine margins, but we’re happy with the three goals.

“For me, it’s about recognising it and trying to correct it in the next game, but I won’t let it stay on my mind for too long.”

‘You Can NEVER Be As Good As Aguero, Kane’ – Michael Owen Tells Rashford

Former Liverpool striker, Michael Owen, has said Manchester United’s Marcus Rashford lacks the “killer instinct” to be a real goal-scoring natural and can never learn it.

Owen remains fifth on England’s all time goalscorers’ list and national team boss, Gareth Southgate, wants Rashford to step up and score more goals for his country.

But Owen believes the Manchester United forward simply isn’t wired that way.

“I don’t think he is obsessed with goals.

“He is a better all round player than me, he has a great touch and all round skill that I never had, but he hasn’t got the killer instinct that I had.

“I was just obsessed…but I don’t think scoring goals is what he goes to bed craving.

“Players like Robbie Fowler, Aguero or Harry Kane these people who are obsessed with goals. I don’t think he is obsessed with goals,” Owen said according to UK Mirror.

Asked if a striker can ever develop that instinct without having it naturally from the start, Owen’s response was blunt, and to the point: “No.”

Rashford, Lingard Send Message To Tammy Abraham After Suffering Racial Abusive

Manchester United forwards, Marcus Rashford and Jesse Lingard, have sent messages of support to Tammy Abraham, after the Chelsea striker was targeted with racist abuse, following his penalty miss against Liverpool in the Super Cup.

Chelsea and Liverpool were forced to settle the Super Cup with a shootout, after it ended 2-2 after 120 minutes in Istanbul on Wednesday evening.

Liverpool scored all five of their penalties, before Abraham had his effort saved by Adrian.

The Blues player was then subjected to a series of abusive posts on social media after the match.

Abraham has now received messages of support from the United duo.

Rashford posted on Twitter:

“Keep your head held high @tammyabraham we’ve all had them saved, that’s football. We should be celebrating young English talent not this…’

Lingard posted a picture of himself with Abraham alongside the message:

“Head up brother stand strong stand proud.”
