Marcus Rashford's opinion on Ralf Rangnick appointment amid woeful Man Utd form

Marcus Rashford’s opinion on Manchester United’s appointment of Ralf Rangnick has emerged as the striker struggles for form. Rangnick was appointed on an interim basis in November but has so far struggled to get the best out of Rashford. 

The 24-year-old forward drew another blank in United’s 1-0 FA Cup victory over Aston Villa, taking his goalless run to 11 matches. It is his longest spell with a goal since 2016. 

Rashford initially started the season well after returning from back surgery in October.  

He scored three goals in his first four appearances but has now not found the net since the 3-0 win against Tottenham on October 30, which helped to prolong Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s reign.  

Further poor performances under the Norwegian prompted his sacking on November 21.

United moved quickly to appoint former RB Leipzig head coach Rangnick on a deal until the end of the season but Rashford is yet to score under the German.  

And now, Rashford’s view on Rangnick has been reported.  

According to The Athletic, the England international was ‘enthused’ by the arrival of the 63-year-old but has struggled to gain consistency due to the change in formation.  

Solskjaer usually opted for a 4-3-3 or a 4-2-3-1 formation during his three years in charge. The 48-year-old also used a back five on occasion. 

“I didn’t speak to any of my team-mates when I was on a bad run, I was shy and quite private. That was my mistake. 

“If there’s someone in the team who is experienced and is an icon in world football, like Ronaldo then go and ask him for advice, I’m sure he will give people time and wise words. 

“Edinson Cavani brings goals wherever he goes, he should speak to him too. Don’t be like me, talk to team-mates, because that cycle of bad form can go on and on. 

“Rashford is a great talent and he is a great player for England, he is a product of the United academy and everybody knows he is a great player.”
