If there is a player who Erik ten Hag has shown a preference for since signing with Manchester United, that would be Marcus Rashford. The young forward just had the worst season of his entire career after struggling with injuries and for that reason, he decided to undergo surgery and get fit for the new year.

The new manager was really impressed by Marcus during the pre-season tour and had really good things to say about him. Despite all the criticism the player was receiving, Erik said that he counted on him and that he would be an important player for him this season and in the future.

That has been proven to be true because Rashford has started in the line-up every game the team has played this season and even after a rough start, the coach has always trusted him, and now it is finally starting to pay off as he has become the team’s top goalscorer so far in the Premier League.

Not only that, but his goals have been very important for the team as he scored the winning goal against Liverpool and a brace against Arsenal this weekend. Without those goals, United wouldn’t have won any of those games. Yesterday, after his two goals, the manager subbed him off and told him something.

What did he tell him?

Erik ten Hag decided to get Rashford off the game in the 80th minute when Manchester United were winning 3-1, but the cameras caught the two of them having a conversation as he was walking out the pitch. The Dutch manager might have told him that he knew his moment would arrive sooner rather than later.
