Alan Shearer Calls Marcus Rashford And Offers To Help The Manchester United Striker Out Of His Slump

Alan Shearer has been in touch with Marcus Rashford and has offered to help the Manchester United striker out of his current dip in form.

Rashford started the season injured and has struggled since returning to the side, scoring just three times in 15 appearances in all competitions.

He is now without a goal in his last 11 matches after failing to find the net in Monday’s 1-0 win over Aston Villa in the FA Cup.

Newcastle legend Shearer was watching at Old Trafford and expressed his concern for Rashford during the BBC’s half-time coverage.

“I get Marcus Rashford has had injuries and he's struggling for confidence,” said Shearer.

“He's done amazing work off the pitch, but it looks as though everything is a chore, as if he is not enjoying his football.”

According to The Sun, Shearer has now contacted Rashford and offered to help him out of his current slump.

Shearer is said to have offered the 24-year-old tips on handling pressure and has also reassured him that he can overcome this difficult period.

His call is said to have been a ‘pick-me-up’ for Rashford, who has also been offered support by former United midfielder Paul Ince.

While others have called for Rashford to be dropped, Ince insists interim manager Ralf Rangnick should do more to accommodate the England international.

Ince told The Sun: “When you look at Rashford, he doesn't look happy. I'm thinking: 'Why is he not happy?'

“I wouldn’t drop Rashford for Saturday. If that was me, I'd say: 'Marcus, where do you want to play? Number ten? Left-hand side? Are you not getting enough of the ball? Are you not making the right decisions when you get it? How do you feel?'

"But to drop him could impact him more than playing him.”
