a word, he is a monster. Marcus Rashford, who performed well for England at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, is continuing his momentum in his team.
Manchester United won 3-0 against Nottingham Forest in the first leg of the English Football League Cup (EFL Cup) semi-finals in the 2022-23 season held at the City Ground in Nottingham, England on the 26th at 5:00 am (Korean time). With this victory, Manchester United can advance to the final even if they draw in the second leg at home.
Manchester United took the lead early. The main character was Rashford. Rashford, who caught the ball lower than the half-line in the 6th minute of the first half, drove the ball directly into the box and succeeded in breaking through, finishing with his left foot in front of the gate and shaking Nottingham’s net. Afterwards, Man Utd won a complete victory by tying Verhost’s additional goal and Bruno’s key goal. 스포츠토토
With this goal, Rashford has scored 10 goals and 2 assists in 10 games since the World Cup. Except for the game against Crystal Palace, the scorer is operated in every game, and it is called a ‘monster’ by producing more than one attack point per game.
Coach Eric Ten Haag also praised Rashford, saying, “I am happy thanks to Rashford’s growth. He showed improvement from the beginning of the season, and it continues until now. I think no one can stop Rashford now.”
Rashford was highly anticipated as a former Manchester United youth player, but last season was plagued by injuries. However, after taking over as manager Ten Hag, he was completely resurrected.
Manchester United offered a new contract to Rashford, who had successfully revived. According to media reports, Rashford is currently receiving 200,000 pounds (about 300 million won) a week, but plans to offer a 1.5-fold increase of 300,000 pounds (about 450 million won). Although it is lower than the 375,000 pounds (approximately 566 million won) received by David de Gea, the team’s highest paid player, it is a great treatment.
