Rio Ferdinand calls on Rashford to improve his ‘decision-making’ to become more of a threat!

Marcus Rashford has been enjoying his life right now as he looks to be in red hot form. He scored the decider once again as Manchester United beat Leeds United. They face Barcelona in the Europa League now and former United defender Rio Ferdinand has words of wisdom for him.

Rio’s Advice for Rashford:

Ferdinand believes Rashford has the potential to be even more effective in the final third if he improves his decision-making and movement off the ball.

The United legend said on his YouTube channel FIVE: “If I’m a defender sometimes I look at Marcus and he can make it easy for defenders sometimes in the game. If he offered the threat in behind a bit more, then I think he’d get even more joy to feet and becomes that threat in behind still. That part of the game there, his decision-making on whether to come long or short, if he gets that he becomes even more of a horrible player to play against.” 

The former Red Devils defender went on to explain how Rashford can solidify his standing among Europe’s elite players. “I think there’s more of the dominance over 90 minutes that he can bring where he’s bringing other people into the game because you know he’s got the passing,” Ferdinand added. 

“We saw that last season, even when he was out of form there were still elements where you were saying ‘wow’. Once he starts getting that synergy with other people in the team he’ll be able to pick out players more. He can take over a game. We’ve seen him do that at points this season but if he can do that more consistently I think you’re getting into the realms of world class football player. He’s not that far off now in terms of form, he’s right up there.”

United will need Rashford for the rest of the campaign as they aim to win the first trophy under Erik Ten Hag.
