Ex-Manchester United star, Mark Hughes has come out to say that Marcus Rashford may be the worst player in the EPL when it comes to off-the-ball work. He recently had his say while speaking to the press, and fans have been reacting.
According to him, even if Rashford is an outstanding talent who has what it takes to be one of the best in the league, he has to step up his game when he is not with the ball.
Hughes added that it is clear that Marcus has slipped back into the mindset that he had prior to last season.
His words, “The lads need to track back and if they lose possession, they have to regain it as quick as they can. If you compare them to how Man City react when they lose the ball, it’s chalk and cheese. If Phil Foden loses the ball on the right hand-side, he wins it back, same with Jack Grealish. Rashford is an outstanding talent and is one of the best in the league when it comes to taking someone on, but without the ball, he’s probably one of the worst. He’s got to sort that part out.”
“I don’t think the players go out with the intention of not trying, that doesn’t happen, but I think [Marcus] Rashford has slipped back into the mindset that he had prior to last season – he doesn’t look happy. He obviously had a lot going on outside the game which maybe took something away from him, and perhaps he just needs to focus back solely on what his role is when he’s asked to put on the shirt for Man United.”
