English player Marcus Rashford is enjoying a serious purple spot at the Red Devils, while French footballer Patrice Evra is tempting him to become a future captain at Old Trafford.


What did Evra say about Marcus Rashford?

England’s international community weathered its testing time in 2021-22 by registering just five goals in that campaign but bounced back in style to see club and country become some of the most full-time players on the planet. The England international has made 18 appearances this season, with that return including scoring feats in seven straight games since the World Cup final, and Patrice believes Marcus Rashford is leading Manchester United.

The ex-Red Devils player said Marcus Rashford plays every week. Evra should congratulate him, he is proud of him. Marcus Rashford smiles and that’s the key. According to Patrice Evra, he always said that one day he would be the captain of the club. His project, his ambition, he’s still young, he’s fresh, and they see him as a priority for Erik ten Hag and that’s why he calls on Marcus Rashford to sign a new deal with Man Utd.

He has a Mancunian mentality and has now fixed his luck. For Evra, the most important priority for the Red Devils right now is to keep this guy happy. So according to him, give him the contract he wants because he is the future of the club. It’s simple. Marcus Rashford has shown himself this season, he is in the shape of his life, but they always knew he could perform like that. “Keep him happy and build a team around him. That’s what I would do if there was Manchester United,” said Patrice Evra.


What will happen next?

The Red Devils have taken on a 12-month extension option on the Englishman’s current contract, tying him until 2024, but new terms are expected to be discussed at some stage to help keep the home star in his native Manchester on a long-term basis. Manchester United – who have made it to the Premier League’s top four, FA Cup fifth round and knockout Europa League playoffs – will be back in action on Wednesday when they face Forest in the second leg of the Carabao Cup semi-final, which they lead 3-0 on aggregate.

How was everything?

Marcus Rashford has scored a goal in each of his last 10 games at Old Trafford. The Englishman even found the back of the net against Reading, which would have helped him get past Dennis Viollets’ record of scoring in the most consecutive games for the club at home, but VAR ruled out a goal for offside in the build-up.
