With all this talk around about Manchester United looking for a new striker in the remaining three weeks of the summer transfer window, sometimes we forget that there is still a lot of talent at Old Trafford, which is the case of the team’s “No. 10” Marcus Rashford, who has not been at the level that he is capable of.

Rashford has not scored a goal in the Premier League since January and has had really poor form. He has scored zero goals and provided zero assists in his last 10 games with the Red Devils. These horrendous numbers could have not been imagined by anyone three years ago when he was one of the team’s best players.

Even though he has been battling with a shoulder injury for a couple of years, he finally decided to undergo surgery so he could be back better than ever. Sadly, this has not been the case. In the opening game of the season against Brighton, he missed two clear chances in front of goal. He seems very frustrated on the pitch and with lack of confidence.

Former Manchester United striker that won the Champions League in 2008, Louis Saha, has backed Rashford from criticism in an interview with The Metro: “You can see that he loves the club, he’s very committed to it, and he doesn’t talk to the press in any nonsense way. It’s only a matter of time before he’s back on his best and scoring goals for fun. When he clicks again, then I think he will be unstoppable”.

He has to regain his confidence

The French ex-footballer added: “He’s had to come back from an injury and has to rediscover that confidence. Once he does that, I think he will continue to improve and improve. Sometimes he shows he’s more frustrated than he should be, but that’s just part of football when you have the talent, and it isn’t quite clicking”.
