Paul Scholes names the aspect Marcus Rashford must improve at Man United
Paul Scholes tells Marcus Rashford to improve his composure in front of goal for Manchester United
Paul Scholes has told Marcus Rashford that he needs to improve his composure in front of goal for Manchester United.
The 19-year-old has earned plenty of praise for his sparkling performances for the Red Devils in recent weeks after bursting onto the scene under Louis van Gaal last season.
Rashford scored the opener in the Red Devils’ 2-0 win over Chelsea last weekend, before netting the extra-time winner in the 2-1 victory over Anderlecht in the Europa League.
The teenager has shown plenty of promise and has attracted huge amounts of praise for his fearless performances for the Red Devils in recent weeks.
But Scholes feels that the striker needs to improve his finishing to continue his development under Jose Mourinho at Old Trafford.
Scholes told BBC Radio 5 live: “What we saw against Anderlecht was raw pace, the excitement, skill and ability to fly past people as if they are not there.
“He probably needs to work on his composure with the chances he is getting, but if he stats putting his chances away – I am sure he will.
“He has always been a centre forward. When I saw him playing for the young United teams, he was scoring 30-40 goals a season. I know this lad can finish and score goals.
“I am just a little bit worried that he is so quick he may get shoved out wide, which is not a bad thing. You look at Cristiano Ronaldo’s record and players like Neymar, he has that kind of ability. It is a lot to live up to but he has that in him. He can be a world star.”
Rashford will be hoping to feature for Manchester United when the Red Devils take on Burnley in the Premier League at Turf Moor on Sunday afternoon.
