Marcus Rashford ‘has been convinced to stay at Manchester United by old pal Daley Blind’, with fallen England star now ‘excited by the prospect of working with Erik ten Hag and receiving the guidance he has lacked’
- Marcus Rashford’s future at Manchester united has been in question
- The English forward just endured a season to forget at Old Trafford
- Daley Blind has made him look forward to a fresh start under a new manager
Former Manchester United midfielder Daley Blind has reportedly helped convince Marcus Rashford to stay at the club.
Rashford’s future at Old Trafford is in question after a very disappointing campaign where he became somewhat of a scapegoat at times.
He managed just five goals in 37 appearances and looked a shadow of the player who burst on to the scene when he originally joined the first team.

However, Goal claim he is now excited about a fresh start under new manager Erik ten Hag.
The Dutchman has previously turned careers around, such as those of Sebastian Haller, Hakim Ziyech and Dusan Tadic.
Ten Hag will have a full pre-season to implement his preferred style of play. His first game in charge will be the friendly against Liverpool in Bangkok on July 12.
Speaking last week, Rashford said: ‘at the beginning of pre-season, you want to get your fitness levels up. [You want to] get back to what it’s like to play in the Premier League. When a team changes its identity and changes the purpose of the football, it’ll be quite obvious to see. I think you’ll be able to see it.’
