Marcus Rashford made his 300th appearance for Manchester United after coming off the bench in the win over Norwich City, with the forward emphasizing his devotion to the club.
Following his 300th appearance for Manchester United, Marcus Rashford praised the “unique feeling” he receives from playing for the club.
The attacker made his Red Devils debut in the Europa League in 2016 and has since established himself as a regular at the club he joined as an eight-year-old. Rashford is a product of Manchester United’s illustrious academy system, and he came off the bench to make the historic appearance on Saturday.
The 25-year-old came on for the final 16 minutes as United defeated Norwich City. “Always a wonderful feeling to pull on this jersey,” he wrote on social media. Thank you very much, @ManUtd.” Rashford has scored 93 goals for Manchester United since his debut, earning four awards in the process, the most recent of which was the Europa League in 2017.
Rashford’s future has been called into question this season, and his future appears to be in jeopardy. The England international has played as a No. 9 and a wide forward, but some believe that his inability to settle on a position has hampered his development.
He is now competing for a place in United’s starting lineup after being snubbed by interim manager Ralf Rangnick this season. Rashford was out for the first few months of the season after undergoing surgery following the Euro 2020 final. The United player was among those who failed to convert from the spot, and he appears to have suffered from a severe hangover in recent months.
According to reports, his entourage is considering their next move, which might be away from Old Trafford. Rashford’s deal is set to end in the summer of 2023, with a one-year extension option. United is eager to hold negotiations about a contract extension.
Despite this, critics have continued to call Rashford and his performances into doubt. In recent months, he has cut a shaky figure, and Gary Neville commented on a recent snub in which Rangnick chose to play without a striker despite Rashford’s availability.
“I was suffering a little bit with it before the game without the center forward,” he admitted after the stalemate with Leicester City. Marcus Rashford was slain today as a result of this… I’m not on that team. I know he’s been impoverished, and I know he’s been insecure.
“But for Cristiano Ronaldo to withdraw this morning and for Paul Pogba to come in and change the method of play and the way the game has been approached, rather than just putting Marcus Rashford in as a striker as a straight swap after training with the team for the last 10 days…”
