I am Not impressed, He can do better”- Erik ten Hag speaks on Marcus Rashford following his goalscoring return to the squad yesterday

Erik ten Hag has offered his take on Marcus Rashford’s return to Manchester United’s starting lineup and assessed the team’s performance in their exhilarating 4-3 triumph over Wolverhampton Wanderers.


Last week, Rashford’s absence from United’s 4-2 victory against Newport County due to an “internal disciplinary matter” stirred speculation after he was seen in Belfast. United addressed the issue internally, with Rashford taking responsibility.


Making a comeback against Wolves, Rashford wasted no time in making an impact, scoring with his third touch of the game.


Ten Hag praised the team’s effort in Rashford’s goal, highlighting it as a fantastic team effort, with multiple players involved in the build-up.


Regarding Rashford’s recent performances, the Dutch manager noted his consistent form, with three goals and two assists in the last three or four games.


Aside from Rashford’s contribution, attention was drawn to Kobbie Mainoo’s sensational 97th-minute goal, securing the dramatic victory.


Ten Hag lauded Mainoo’s progress and versatility as a modern midfield player capable of both attacking and defending.


However, despite individual successes, Ten Hag expressed mixed feelings about the team’s overall performance, noting the need for better management, especially in defensive situations.


The manager’s reflections underscore the contrasting emotions experienced in witnessing thrilling moments alongside areas that require improvement, emphasizing the importance of addressing defensive lapses for future matches.
