Fernandes thinks ‘amazing’ Man Utd player deserves more credit

Man Utd midfielder Bruno Fernandes thinks Marcus Rashford is “doing an amazing job” despite his lack of goals since the Premier League’s resumption.

Rashford has scored 15 Premier League goals this season but only one of those has come since he scored a brace against Norwich City in early January.

Despite his lack of goals, Fernandes thinks Rashford has been offering a lot to Man Utd as they continue their excellent form since the Premier League restart.

“Like you saw on Thursday night [in the 3-0 victory over Aston Villa], Mason [Greenwood] scored a beautiful goal again and Anthony [Martial] and Marcus did very well,” Fernandes told MUTV.

“I think everyone is talking about Marcus not scoring a lot of goals but he is doing an amazing job. The game he is playing now, maybe he is not achieving his goals and everything but, with everything we are doing now, he will achieve more goals and more assists.

“In the games, in the complete football, because football is not just about goals and assists, it is about the team and Marcus is playing very well for the team.

“Anthony is playing very well and scoring goals, which is what you want as a striker, and Mason is a young kid who is scoring every time in different ways, so you always need to expect something new from him.”

Fernandes added: “We have a lot of quality on the bench – Odion [Ighalo] scored in the cup against Norwich and we also have players like Dan James, Jesse [Lingard], Juan [Mata], Chongy [Tahith Chong].

“So we know when we’re tired and we need some freshness, we have a lot of players for the end of the season. It’s easy to play with these kind of players.

“I hope Marcus can find more goals because he deserves it for the work he is doing for the team, and nobody sees it because everyone sees the goals and who scores and assists.

“The work he is doing for the team is amazing. Marcus was injured for a long time so it’s difficult to find that confidence again, to do things like shoot from far out. But he is doing an amazing job for the group and I think he deserves credit for this.”
