Insisted that he would regain top-form

WHAT HAPPENED? The English forward has been struggling for form in front of goal, scoring just once in all competitions, and his misfortune continued in United’s latest 4-3 defeat to FC Copenhagen in the Champions League. He was given his marching orders after stamping on defender Elias Jelert’s ankle on Wednesday.

 

WHAT THEY SAID: Ten Hag while reflecting on Rashford’s recent performances: “He is not happy. We are not happy. He has high expectations from himself. In this moment, he’s not in his best form, but I know he will be back. When the team is playing better, he will play better, he will score goals, I’m confident of that, so yeah, also this season he will improve and score. He’s totally in the team and aware of everything. he will be back on track and it can happen very quickly. Sometimes you only need one game and I’m sure he will get there.”

 

THE BIGGER PICTURE: There are significant expectations on Rashford as he was in sublime touch last season, scoring <32 goals across all competitions. However, he is currently on an eight-match barren run which has left the team wanting in attack.

Finally, it’s about the end result and it’s always about a process, thinking about it and then managing the process, which is what I focus on.”
