An unexpected comment was made by former striker Louis Saha, who claimed that the “reviving” star of the Red Devils is capable of scoring up to 40 goals in a season. Saha’s statement was made.
Since England’s return from the 2022 World Cup, Man United has gone undefeated in its last four matches and has scored nine goals in that span of time. Despite this, Erik ten Hag, the coach, is not completely comfortable with his offence. The Red Devils have not yet found a replacement for their striker despite it being January.
Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial are the only two players under the control of the Dutch tactician who have the ability to play in the central position, and this does not appear to be sufficient. Rashford is the only one of these players who is now in the best scoring form, and he is leading the pack. The number 10 for Manchester United is now the team’s leading goalscorer with a total of 12 goals after appearing in 23 matches for the club.
Rashford has scored at least one goal in each of the team’s most recent four matches, and coach Ten Hag needs those goals more than ever right now.
After observing Rashford’s stellar play, Casemiro and Luke Shaw have both praised the 25-year-old striker by saying that the former Manchester United player who was a source of shame for the club during the previous campaign has the potential to become one of the best in the world in the years to come.
Not only Casemiro and Luke Shaw, but also the former striker Louis Saha has rated Marcus Rashford as a special talent for the Red Devils. Saha expressed his belief that the striker born in 1997 can completely reach the milestone of 40 goals/season and compare on par with contemporary superstars like Erling Haaland and Kylian Mbappe. Rashford was born in 1997. Casemiro, Luke Shaw, and Louis Saha all rated Marcus Rashford as a special talent for the
During an interview with Compare.bet, Saha made a startling proclamation regarding the accomplishment that Marcus Rashford is capable of doing if he keeps up his strong form:
Rashford is a player that has the potential to score 30–40 goals in a single season. He is able to triumph over everyone. The question then is why he doesn’t score as many goals as Haaland or Mbappe.
Both of those musicians have a tempo and frame of mind that are uncommonly found in other people. It comes down to the fact that both Haaland and Mbappe are highly skilled at positioning and hitting the net in a variety of different ways. Rashford is also beginning to do it gradually.
If Rashford is able to keep up his current level of fitness and confidence, he will be unstoppable and able to accomplish anything he sets his mind to. Since Cristiano was playing, I have not witnessed a talent on par with that of Rashford. Ronaldo.
“Rashford himself just needs to have a more aggressive mentality and belief that puts him apart from the rest like Messi and Ronaldo,” said the coach. “These are the characteristics that separate Messi and Ronaldo apart from the rest.”
Rashford’s great form over time not only helped the 25-year-old attacker recapture his best form, but also helped Manchester United fly high in the Premier League standings. Not only have the Red Devils officially entered the top four, but they can also seriously consider competing for the Premier League title with Arsenal and Manchester City.
Man United still has at least 20 matches left this season.
Rashford, if he maintains his present consistent scoring form, has the potential to surpass the 30-goal mark per season, as veteran Saha has stated.
