Bruno Fernandes confident goals will come for Marcus Rashford. Fernandes says Rashford’s impact for United goes far beyond the stats.
Bruno Fernandes insists Marcus Rashford is doing an “amazing job” for Manchester United, despite failing to score from open play since the Premier League resumed last month.
Rashford, who missed 13 games with a back injury, has scored once – from the penalty spot against Bournemouth – and added two assists in six appearances.
The England international has been overshadowed during that period by Fernandes (five goals, three assists), teenage sensation Mason Greenwood (four goals, one assist) and French striker Anthony Martial (four goals, three assists).
“I think everyone is talking about Marcus not scoring a lot of goals. But he is doing an amazing job,” Fernandes told the club’s official website.
“The game he is playing now, maybe he is not achieving his goals and everything but, with everything we are doing now, he will achieve more goals and more assists.”
“In the games, in the complete football, because football is not just about goals and assists. It is about the team and Marcus is playing very well for the team.”
“I hope Marcus can find more goals because he deserves it for the work he is doing for the team. Nobody sees it because everyone sees the goals and who scores and assists. The work he is doing for the team is amazing.”
