Harry Maguire is the latest player to sing Marcus Rashford’s praises after the 25-year-old winger performed his heroics once again to help send Manchester United into the last four of the Carabao Cup.
Antony gave United the lead in the first half with a beautifully curled effort but the score remained 1-0 until the 90th minute when Rashford scored the killer blow.
That goal meant that he equalled Wayne Rooney’s record of scoring in eight straight home games and only moments later, he would score his second of the game.
Understandably, Rashford is stealing all of the headlines at the moment and United skipper Maguire was quick to praise him after the game, as seen below.
"This club is about winning trophies" 📈

“He’s in great form, it’s great to see,” Maguire said after the game. “(He’s) playing with a big smile on his face, I think that’s the most important thing. Enjoying his football and long may it continue.”
United have now won eight straight games in all competitions but Maguire has stressed that winning trophies is the most important thing.
“It’s really important,” he said. “This club demands doing well in all competitions. Last season, not only were we really poor in the Premier League, we were really poor in all the cup competitions as well and we didn’t give ourselves a chance of winning a trophy.
“This club is about winning trophies so we’ve got to make sure we take each competition really seriously. We have done and we’re in all that we’ve entered for at the moment and hopefully, it can continue like that.”
