​Man Utd news: Sky Sports pundit highlights Marcus Rashford problem

Gordon Strachan was speaking about Rashford.


Sky Sports pundit and former Manchester United midfielder Gordon Strachan believes Marcus Rashford faces one problem.

The England international has been on the periphery of the first team most of the season.

Rashford finds himself behind the likes of Romelu Lukaku, Alexis Sanchez, Anthony Martial, Juan Mata and Jesse Lingard in the pecking order.

And Strachan believes that is because he does not have a favoured position on the pitch.

However, the former Scotland manager is not worried by the 20-year-old’s lack of gametime and thinks it would be best if he continued to learn his trade with Man Utd .
United legend Ryan Giggs openly criticised the lack of chances Rashford has been given yesterday and claimed he should consider a move elsewhere.

But Strachan thinks it would be best if he stayed put.

“No I would not worry about him,” Strachan told Sky Sports’ The Debate.

“His problem is that he can play in a few positions.
“In this moment he doesn’t know what he is best at either.

“With Manchester united, Jose Mourinho likes that big powerful striker up front.

“I don’t know if Marcus is that type of player.

“Can he play off the left and right? He certainly can.
“Can he play a number 10? I don’t know.

“At that point you have to find your best position.

“Marcus has to learn the game all round better, then when you’ve developed you’ll find the best position for you.

“At the moment there is a grey area for the lad and for Manchester United.”
