Former Manchester United man Keith Gillespie has criticised Marcus Rashford’s form in an exclusive interview with Football FanCast, insisting that he has not been good enough.
The £200,000-a-week England international has somewhat struggled in front of goal this season as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side have attempted to challenge Manchester City at the top of the league.
Rashford has scored nine goals in 29 Premier League appearances this season but he has netted just twice in his last 14 appearances.
Those goals came in the 9-0 thumping of Southampton and the 3-1 beating of Newcastle United, and Gillespie has been disappointed with the way the 23-year-old has been performing.
Indeed, he believes that United need to prioritise the signing of a striker in the summer transfer window as they look to find a guaranteed source of goals.
Speaking exclusively to FFC, he said: “I think for quite a while Rashford’s been poor, and I think a lot of Man United fans feel this.
“He’s got all the talent in the world but just sometimes his decision-making isn’t good enough.”
Rashford did have a good record in the Champions League this season, scoring six times in six games, but his lack of form has coincided with United losing ground in the title race.
