Just a year ago, Jamie Carragher claimed that Marcus Rashford should leave Manchester United. With only 5 goals and 2 assists after 32 appearances in all competitions, it is understandable when Rashford is constantly criticized by experts. Even, before the interest from Paris Saint-Germain, many Red Devils fans also think that it is time for the club to be “strong” with the English striker to promptly collect a reasonable transfer fee.
However, coach Erik Ten Hag ignored all the negɑtive comments about Rashford and decided to give this player absolute confidence. After all, thanks to being able to play in a team with a certain style of play, along with not being tormented by injuries, Rashford has had the most successful season of his career so far, with 29 goals and 11 assists in 53 games.
Ten Hag’s faith in Rashford has paid off.
Now, there are no longer views that Man Utd should part with Rashford. Instead, the Old Trafford team is trying their best to convince the English striker to sign a new contract.
Similar to the case of Rashford, the injuries and badness from the Man Utd team last season also negɑtively affected Luke Shaw, making him experience a really nightmare season. With only a total of 19 starts in the Premier League, many fans have called for Man Utd to replace Shaw with a more quality defender, even at one time Alex Telles was favored over the former Southampton star.
Shaw is back in top form.
However, under the leadership of Ten Hag, Shaw has really become an ‘irreplaceable’ name in the current Man Utd squad. Not only ‘nailing’ for the position of left-back, he also continuously delivers excellent performances whenever he is arranged to play as a central defender. On top of that, Shaw’s future at Old Trafford has also been secured with a new contract, which runs until 2027.
It can be said that Wan-Bissaka is quite a special case, because his career has both fallen dramatically and sublimated under Ten Hag. Before the 2022 World Cup, Wan-Bissaka was like an “invisible man” at Old Trafford with only 4 minutes of playing in the Premier League. But after the World Cup, the former Crystal Palace star has become a particularly important factor for Man Utd, even being kicked more than Diogo Dalot in recent times.
Wan-Bisska is a ‘nightmare’ for every left-winger in the Premier League.
Easily confirmed, Wan-Bissaka has shown strong improvements in the ability to participate in offensιve support. But most of all, perhaps his defensive skills have been honed to the ‘ultimate’ level, to the point that the ‘dribbling machine’ Kaoru Mitoma also had to admit defeat when confronting Wan-Bissaka. The English star has really raised his career from the ɑshes, and it would not be too surprιsing if he continues to stay at Old Trafford after the summer transfer window.
