"I nominated two people..." - Marcus Rashford reveals his picks for Man Utd Players' Player of the Year

Marcus Rashford revealed his picks for Manchester United’s Player of the Year award.

The 25-year-old has enjoyed a resurgence in form this term following a difficult campaign under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Ralf Rangnick.

The forward became the first United player since Robin Van Persie a decade ago to net 30 goals in all competitions in a single season - a return that includes 17 Premier League strikes.

Such imperious performances saw Rashford named both the club's Players' Player of the Year and Sir Matt Busby Player of the Year. Indeed, he becomes United’s first academy graduate to claim the fan-voted accolade since 1998.


Rashford expressed the”'immense pride” he felt at being the most popular choice of the fans and his teammates and later admitted the two players he voted for in the Players’ Player of the Year poll.

Rashford’s Player of the Year vote

Speaking to United’s in-house media, Rashford admitted that he voted for Bruno Fernades and Casemiro to win Player’s Player of the Year.

Rashford said: "I think I nominated two people. I don't know if I'm allowed to do that [laughs].



"I voted for Case [Casemiro] and Bruno [Fernandes]. I feel like Case has done an amazing job since coming in and he has made us a lot more solid.

"He's one of the reasons why David [De Gea] managed to win the Golden Glove, and we were just a lot more solid in the midfield.

"That freed the likes of people like Bruno and [Christian] Eriksen, who I thought has had a tremendous season as well, to play their football."


Of course, Rashford was ultimately the recipient of the prize, and he was presented the award by club captain Harry Maguire.

On his United and England team-mate, Maguire said: "Marcus has obviously had an exceptional year. He is a big part of the dressing room, he's a top professional and this season he proved he can play at the highest level.

"When we need him, he scores goals. I just wish and hope on Saturday [in the FA Cup final] he produces again."
