A former Red Devil Saha wants the England forward to fulfil his potential as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s first choice through the middle this term
Marcus Rashford will have “no excuses” if he fails to reach the 20-goal mark for Manchester United in the Premier League this season, according to Louis Saha.
The 21-year-old burst onto the senior stage at Old Trafford back in 2015 under Louis van Gaal and has since established himself as a regular in United’s line up.
“Rashford has got no excuses to not score over 20 league goals next season,” the Frenchman told Bwin .
“He’s clearly Solskjaer’s main man up top now and he’ll start most games, giving him ample opportunities to score goals.
“He’s an excellent player and has all the attributes to be a Golden Boot winner – pace, technical ability, an engine and he’s unpredictable when he’s got the ball at his feet.
“Sometimes he’s guilty of trying one flick too many which he needs to get out of his game, as he does the hard part but then tries one thing too much.
“He’s still very young, but Solskjaer is the perfect manager to get the best out of Rashford. Solskjaer always took his chances and was clinical in front of goal and if he can pass that down to Rashford, then he’ll score 20-30 goals a season.”
