Rio blames rotten Rashford form on Man Utd ‘uncertainty’



Marcus Rashford is ‘hurt’ by the uncertainty at Manchester United as they stumble towards the end of the season in seventh place in the Premier League, says Rio Ferdinand.

Rashford has not scored since January and wasted his start against Everton on Saturday, failing to score before being hooked after 64 pretty poor minutes of a 1-0 defeat.

The United forward has scored only four Premier League goals this season and has rarely looked comfortable anywhere across the front three.

There are some suggestions that he could reject the offer of a new contract and move elsewhere in an attempt t0 revive his career but Ferdinand insists he needs to see stability at United.

“It has left me worried. I’m asking a lot of questions of what is going on behind the scenes, and I think that every young player does it,” said Ferdinand on BT Sport.

“He has slumped shoulders, not looking as confident. When Marcus Rashford burst onto the scene, you thought ”Oh my god, this kid”. It’s like Roy of the Rovers – he is going to do what he wants in the game.

“I think a lot of that [lack of confidence] stems from the uncertainty of the football club. He’s a local boy that is desperate for this football club to do well – he grew up on success. That’s all he has ever known as a kid, that’s all he has watched. To be in this situation, I know it hurts him.”

When asked what he meant by uncertainty, Ferdinand said: “The uncertainty in terms of the manager, even contract, I think he has been offered a contract but he is probably sitting there thinking ‘I don’t even know who the next manager is. This manager hasn’t played me as much as I like to and when he has played me, he has played me out of position as well’.

“In time he will understand sometimes you have to go to put on a show for people that might not necessarily show how you feel at that time.’

“There is no doubt, the talent is there. It’s just about getting back to the levels we know and going past them levels. This kid wants to be a top player, he is hungry, he works hard and he just needs now to turn his form around.”
