Fans are all saying the same thing about Marcus Rashford after latest comments

Fans are all saying the same thing about Marcus Rashford after latest comments

There is a theme here.

Marcus Rashford could be at risk of angering Manchester United fans after his latest comments about injuries.

Rashford, 25, has scored 123 goals in 359 since coming through the Red Devils' academy and finished sixth in the Premier League's goalscoring charts last season.

He has often been the man Erik ten Hag has turned to for goals, particularly after Cristiano Ronaldo's acrimonious departure in November 2022.

However, Rashford reckons he could score even more if he manages to stay injury-free, and has set his sights on Wayne Rooney's all-time goalscoring record for United.

Talking to Gary Neville on The Overlap, Rashford said: "Towards the end of the season, I was struggling with a few injuries, and I wasn’t quite at it – that’s when the goals started to dry up for a bit. If I can keep that side of it under [control], I feel like I can go on and get 35 or 40.”

Meanwhile, some fans reckon the England international has been using injuries as an excuse for years after one Twitter user dragged up past quotes from Rashford when he said something similar.

Speaking back in May 2021, Rashford blamed United's Europa League final penalty shootout defeat to Villarreal on the side's injury problems.

"I could walk you into the dressing room, I could show you five, six, seven players and me as well who had injuries here, from September, the beginning of the season," he told ESPN.

Go back to June 2020, and Rashford explained that his injury hindered what would have been his "best season to date".

"For me personally I felt I was having my best season to date before the injury hit so now I’m back fully fit I’m determined to push on,” the forward told Stretty News.

More recently, Rashford explained his desire to break Rooney's all-time United goal record, revealing that Rooney "wants" him to do it.

“Hopefully I will [break Wayne Rooney’s all-time United goal record],” Rashford said on The Overlap podcast.

“You never know what’s going to happen but I’m all about scoring goals and trying to make assists. There’s a chance that it can happen. I’ve spoken to Wazza [Rooney] about it — he wants me to do it. He said it would be good for me to do it as I’ve grown up at the club. Hopefully I get the opportunity to try to make it happen.”
