Giggs: Rashford inconsistent but should still play

Published

on

The former Red Devils star is excited about the 19-year-old despite his lack of starts this season and is happy with Jose Mourinho’s start.

Ryan Giggs says he would pick Marcus Rashford in his Manchester United team, despite admitting he suffers from inconsistency.

The forward made a big impact on United’s first team when he scored two on his debut little over a year ago, a 5-1 Europa League win over Midtjylland, before getting another double and an assist a few days later against Arsenal in his first league outing.

The 19-year-old has featured in 21 Premier League games this term, but has found starts hard to come by of late, limiting him to three goals.

However, Giggs, who spent 24 years in United’s first-team, is confident he will improve and maintains he can still be decisive, despite having some weaker performances.

“He’s still a young player and second seasons can be really difficult,” he told Goal at a Premier Futsal event in Delhi.

“You’ve seen it with so many young players. I think he is still exciting and he can be a match winner still. He’s just been inconsistent. I like him and would pick him in my team. He will only get better.”

After winning the EFL Cup, the Red Devils are 17 points behind leaders Chelsea in the English top flight, take on the Blues in their FA Cup quarter-final on Monday and will settle their Europa League last-16 tie with Rostov next week, having drawn 1-1 away on Thursday. Giggs feels things are coming together nicely for manager Jose Mourinho, though the former Wales international admits he is paying for a poor start to life at Old Trafford.

“I think he’s done okay. He had a slow start and it is always difficult,” he added. “If you look at Jose’s career so far, he has always dealt with similar kind of teams – Porto, Chelsea, Inter.

“With United, he was coming into a team which was strong squad wise but I think he is still struggling a little bit to find his best XI.
