I don’t think Marcus Rashford is a striker – Sir Alex Ferguson


    Manchester United’s most successful manager in history Sir Alex Chapman Ferguson has advised the Manchester based club to invest in getting a new striker in spite of the menacing form of Marcus Rashford. 

    Sir Alex is a managerial don in world football, Premier League and obviously Manchester United. He watched on from the stands as his former club won the EFL Cup on Sunday.

    Ferguson commended Rashford’s remarkable form in front of goal that has seen him score twenty-five (25) goals across all competitions for Manchester United. 

    These numbers marked the Englishman’s best career run. However, Sir Alex Chapman Ferguson warned that more players need to be getting in on the act with their own goals as well. 

    Sir Alex Ferguson speaking with Sky Sports said: “I don’t think he’s a striker, He operates away from the left-hand side and has been fantastic, His finishing is always good, always keeps his shots down which is really important for a striker and is in a great vein of form.”

    “Unfortunately for us, he’s the main source of goals, we could do with an extra one, but he’s doing it.” 

    Sir Alex Ferguson worked with many of the world’s outstanding players during his successful 26-year reign at Manchester United. 

    He also groomed Cristiano Ronaldo from a youngster to the World’s best player and helped Wayne Rooney on his path to being the club’s highest goalscorer in history. 

    This advice from Sir Alex is coming in a season where Manchester United have not had it rosy in front of goal with the striking department.

    Due to this, Manchester United have had to bring Wout Weghorst amidst the injury issues that Anthony Martial keeps dealing with. 

    Wout Weghorst has had a wishy-washy start in attack for Manchester United as his numbers as regards to goals is low but his workrate cannot be underestimated.

    Marcus Rashford’s positional changes in Manchester United

    Marcus Rashford has in many times seen his position change in games with him sometimes being made to play on the left-wing and also as the arrowhead in attack due to the unavailability of an out and out forward. 

    Sir Alex Ferguson might love the prospect of Manchester United signing Victor James Osimhen who has been outstanding in front of goal and reports have emerged of a possible move in the summer for the Nigerian. 

    Kylian Mbappe is another name who is feebly rumored that could join Manchester United, The Frenchman also started on the left wing but has been primarily shifted to the middle of Paris Saint Germain’s attack.
