Carragher: Marcus Rashford is not good enough for Manchester United

Former Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher had some harsh words to say about Manchester United star Marcus Rashford at a recent debate.

At the same open mic event, Gary Neville admitted he has fears over Erik ten Hag and believes most United fans are ‘cautiously optimistic’ about the new manager.

Carragher ripped into Rashford by claiming he isn’t good enough for United. I know there will be United fans out there who agree with that statement, but we all know fans who are quick to jump to conclusions.

Nobody is saying Rashford has a good season but I’d like to think he can bounce back from a difficult campaign.

Speaking on the latest episode of The Overlap, Carragher said: “Marcus Rashford is just not quite good enough for Manchester United.

“That’s all it is. That’s it, he’s not quite good enough for Man United. He is at the level of Tottenham or Arsenal.

“He’s not going to win you the league or the Champions League. You’d need the two up front with him to be megastars and he’d be the addition.”

The 24-year-old lost his place in the team this season under Ralf Rangnick when the former interim manager decided to give Anthony Elanga some first team experience.

Moreover, Rashford missed out on the recent England selection, but at least he is able to get away to enjoy himself over the summer in order to come back fully recharged.

Rashford scored just five goals this season and has been linked with a move away from Old Trafford.

We will be hoping he stays to impress under Ten Hag.

  1. i strongly agree to Carragher, Rashford is not someone who Man utd can solely rely upon to when the league, he is same like Martial. Can only keep him as backup for the main 2. Rashford is got attraction with his off the pitch works, but nothing on the pitch. Look at Man city or Liverpool those 3 front are doing a massive work. i hope Erik either sell him and get Antony who looks energetic and hungry to score. Rashford body language is like Martial. Managers cant get the best out of these players u doesn’t care if there team is losing.

  2. Carragher is correct.

    It’s time to stop making excuses for Rashford just because he’s English and an academy product.

    As a footballer he is not good enough, either in terms of ability or attitude, over the past couple of years the only thing he’s done consistently well is whine on social media and act like he’s entitled to special treatment because he did the charity stuff.

    Time to cut him loose whilst there’s still a chance of getting actual money for him.
