Shadowboxing, or The Mystery of Marcus Rashford


In recent years, the crisis at Manchester United has been talked about a lot and with taste. The problems that have overtaken the club this season are still an echo of the events that began in the camp of the Red Devils after Sir Alex Ferguson left the post of manager. Since then, instead of trying to solve something in earnest, the United bosses have been doing a “facelift”, lubricating and plastering what should have been dismantled long ago and erected in its place a new solid modern structure.

How will Marcus Rashford spend the rest of the season? How many goals will he score and will he help the team get into the top 4? If you have Manchester United predictions and Rashford’s performance this season, use the best betting app in Kenya and place your bets.

The dismissal of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer during the current season and the appointment of Ralf Rangnick as interim coach of the team are once again a half measure from the bosses of Manchester United. But such is their will and vision, and therefore the fans of this once formidable and glorious team can only hope for the best.

However, with such a game that the Red Devils demonstrate, even the most notorious optimists may begin to doubt the bright future of the team. For example, in the third round of the FA Cup, United got a home victory over Aston Villa (1: 0), but in terms of the quality of football, they are unlikely to have worked out such a result. The indicators of the expected goals of the teams turned out to be almost equal at all: 1.37 for Manchester United versus 1.38 for Aston Villa. And this despite the fact that the hosts had 19 shots on goal, and the guests had only 10.

Whenever the “Red Devils” brought their attacking actions to the final, they had someone in their squad who ruined the moment in the bud. More often than not, that loser has been Marcus Rashford… The 24-year-old winger seems to have lost all of his former confidence and equanimity, which is why he failed the match with Aston Villa in the Cup, without even showing up on the field in the next game against Birmingham that followed a few days later, as part of the English Premier League draw.

In the cup battle, Rashford had 4 shots, but none of them hit the target. In total, Markus made 73 actions on the field – a good indicator as an attacking player, but only in 32 cases the attacker was lucky, and the rest of his attempts failed. Rushford’s attempts to habitually succeed in martial arts also ended in a frank fiasco – only 10 duels won out of 32.

Unraveling the mystery of Marcus Rashford’s poor form is a task for the near future for the entire coaching staff of Ralph Rangnick. The problem of Manchester United is only that there are so many similar mysteries facing the German coach that a much more venerable coach would hardly be able to solve them than the German, who in recent years has been much more focuses on the functionary and managerial function, rather than directly on coaching.
