Marcus Rashford is the talk of the town at the moment, with the 25-year-old’s unstoppable form continuing last weekend when he scored the second goal in Manchester United’s 2-0 Carabao Cup final win over Newcastle.
That strike, which was eventually awarded to him hours after the final whistle, was his 25th of the season – three more than he has managed in any previous campaign.
After watching his side end a six-year trophy drought, Sir Alex Ferguson was at the heart of celebrations as he was spotted congratulating Erik ten Hag, among others.
Speaking after the game, the legendary United manager admitted that the Reds could do with someone to ease the burden on Rashford in terms of goalscoring.
🗣️ “I don’t think he’s a striker. He operates from the left side. His finishing is always good. Unfortunately for us he’s the main source of goals, we could do with an extra one.”

“I don’t think he’s a striker,” Ferguson told Football Daily, as seen above. “He operates, really, from the left-hand side – fantastic.”
“His finishing is always good, always keeps his shots down which is really important for a striker and he’s in a great vein of form.
“Unfortunately for us, he’s the main source of goals. We could do with an extra one but you know, he’s doing it!”
Rashford has now scored 17 goals in his last 19 appearances in all competitions – a stunning run that he will be desperate to extend for as long as possible.
