Rangnick tells Rashford what he needs to do to win starting XI place back

At a press conference this afternoon, Ralf Rangnick was asked what Marcus Rashford should do to win a place back in the Manchester United starting line-up.

The academy graduate would have been extremely disappointed to have missed out on a place in the team to start against Manchester City last weekend. Unfortunately, when Rashford came off the bench, he didn’t make the manager regret his decision.

Ralf Rangnick has said Rashford must transmit his training performances to matches if he is to regain his place in the team at United, which is a pretty fair response when some managers dance around such questions.

“To play on the same level he trains,” Rangnick said following a question about Rashford had to getting back into the team, as per the Manchester Evening News. “This is all, we spoke about that a week ago, two weeks ago in a press conference.

“Marcus is training well, he’s got an abundant of talent, he’s got almost everything you need for a modern striker, it’s about transforming the performance of the training sessions into the regular games.”

It emerged earlier this week that the forward was considering his future because of fears over his place in the England squad ahead of the World Cup. Moreover, Rashford has only started two of the last 11 Premier League games.

The 26-year-old is not certain to start against Tottenham tomorrow evening and it’s a must win game if we are to keep fighting for a place in the top four this season.
