Manchester United 1-0 Aston Villa: Rangnick’s reaction

Alan Shearer has reached out to Marcus Rashford as the Manchester United star continues to fight for shape.

The striker started the season late after undergoing shoulder surgery and has scored only three times since returning.

His refusal reflected that of his team, who could lose the top four this season, but Rashford has been criticized.

The England star missed a penalty in the Euro 2020 final last summer and witnessed his body language called out by former players.

Shearer, the Premier League’s record scorer, has struggled with a severe drought in goals throughout his career.

As a result, he is looking to lend a helping hand and, according to The Sun, has called Rishford to try and do what he can.

Shearer was notorious for turning down a move to the red half of Manchester when he left Blackburn Rovers in the 1990s.

Marcus Rashford is currently battling for goals and form

He chose to return to his hometown of Newcastle but is now trying to help the Red Devils.

Rashford has yet to score this calendar year and has been in and out of the starting line-up.

Ralf Rangnick pulled the trigger during the recent FA Cup win over Aston Villa and admitted he didn’t know why the 24-year-old struggled to get his game up.

“Actually I don’t know,” the German when asked about the reason behind Rashford’s form.

“He’s trying really hard, he’s in training, he’s been really good the last couple of days, which is why he’s right in the starting lineup.

“I think we faced him in the first half a lot, we also tried to get him into the penalty area, in the second half that was not the case very often and that is why at the end of the match I decided to make two changes with Anthony Ilanga and Jesse Lingard.

“For the strikers, it is important that they score intermittently, that there are moments of success, of course, it would be good for Marcus to be able to score a goal but as long as he tries, as long as he trains well, I don’t see a big problem.”

Alan Shearer called the Man United striker



Rashford must also talk about his future with United sooner rather than later as his contract expires.

The 24-year-old has 18 months left on his £200,000-a-week deal – although United have another generic option.

Rashford would ideally like to stay in Manchester, according to the Daily Mail, but knows his next contract will include the peak years of his career.

The striker burst onto the scene in 2016, but with so many options in attack at Old Trafford, he’s not a foolproof start.
