- United boss Ten Hag believes that the team as a whole is underperforming.
- Rashford hit 30 goals for United last season but has scored just once this season.
- Ten Hag believes he will ‘catch fire’ and return to his scoring ways.
Manchester United boss Erik Ten Hag has no doubt that his number one striker Marcus Rashford will regain his glory.
“Of course, everyone knows his qualities but also the opposition knows the qualities. We have seen in the last (few) weeks that he is coming in the good positions, now he is struggling, but this will pass because everyone knows his qualities.”
The Manchester United forward has had a disappointing start to the season.
Rashford hit 30 goals for United last season but has scored just once in their woeful start to the campaign.
United boss Ten Hag believes the whole team is under-performing, resulting to the England star’s poor goal return.
“That is, of course, the team and him,” he said. “It is both, so I am sure that you are always not at the same levels.
Ten Hag said one goal could boost Rashford’s confidence and spark a scoring spree.
“It will come, and he is so experienced, he knows that as well. When he is doing the right things and the team is doing the right things, that momentum will come, and he will be on fire.” Ten Hag added.
The troubled club have lost six of their 10 games in all competitions this season. They are falling in the Premier League and slumping to the bottom of their Champions’ League group.
Lack of consistency
Rocked by their shock home defeat against Galatasaray in the Champions League on Tuesday, Ten Hag said his faltering team are struggling to find consistency.
“In big parts of the game, I would say, we do a lot of things right. But then we have moments when we are struggling and, in such moments, we can’t survive in those moments you have to do the right things, so be consistent and do your job, be consistent in the communication because when you do that, you keep the right organization.’’ The Dutchman said.
