Manchester United manager Erik Ten Hag has challenged Marcus Rashford to score at least 35 goals for Manchester United this season following his empressive form.
After falling behind by two goals on Wednesday against Leeds, Rashford’s header triggered a United comeback and helped them earn a draw.
Rashford,has been a key contributor to United’s victories this season despite being unable to come up with a game-winning goal, scoring 11 goals in the Premier League, one in the FA Cup, three in the Europa League, and five in the Carabao Cup to help United advance to the final against Newcastle on February 26.
The forward is not showing any signs of slowing down, as he keeps improving in every game he played in and Ten Hag wants to see him keep up his current form.
Speaking on the club’s official website, after the game against Leeds United on Sunday,where Rashford scored one the goals to give Manchester United a 2:0 victory,Ten said that, “He still has a lot to offer and we have months of crucial play ahead.
“We have to get into a position where we can win trophies, till now, where we are, Marcus has a big impact in this season.
“I remember at the start of the season, I was questioning can he score 20 goals, now he has that marker, he has scored 21 goals, but now it’s about getting more.
“He must push himself to reach 30 or 35, but his main attention must be on the next objective; if he does, he will see where he ends up. The fact that we succeed as a team, though, is what matters most.”
Manchester United moved up to second in the EPL table with 46points 4points behind Arsenal who are leading the EFL after a 2:0 victory against Leeds United on Sunday.
