‘He’s finished’ – Jamie Redknapp tells forward to leave Manchester United

'He's finished' - Jamie Redknapp tells forward to leave Manchester United

Former Liverpool player Jamie Redknapp has urged Marcus Rashford to leave Manchester United in the summer in order to rediscover his top form, insisting that the forward would have loads of suitors coming for his signature.

Rashford has endured mixed performances at Man United this season, which has seen him make only 10 starts in the Premier League so far.

The England international has struggled to pose as a threat against teams, unlike last season when he kept teams unsettled and hit double figures of goals and assists in all competitions.

Rashford came off the bench against Leicester City in the second half and came close to getting United the match-winning goal but his big chance was thwarted after poor communication with Anthony Elanga.

The 24-year-old, who has lost his starting role under Ralf Rangnick, is out of contract next year and Redknapp feels the promising forward should be looking to move on at the end of this season because he has lost his way entirely at United.

“This is a young man that I believe has to go and explore and go to do something else,” Redknapp told Sky Sports of Rashford via Metro.co.uk.

“He [Marcus Rashford] looks like he’s fallen out of love with the game right now. Go and play somewhere, because there’s no doubt there’s a player in there.

“There will be hundreds of clubs that would want him. He’s had enormous success against the likes of Paris Saint-Germain in Europe.

“Clubs in England would want him – Tottenham, Arsenal – everyone would want him. But I think his time has run at Manchester United.”

Manchester United interim manager Ralf Rangnick defended his decision to bench Marcus Rashford against Leicester City.

Rangnick on not starting Rashford: “It is no secret that he was not full of confidence in the last couple of weeks.

“In training, he is looking well but it was a question between Paul Pogba and Marcus, we went with Paul.”
