‘Jadon Sancho has been poor and Marcus Rashford should leave’ August 14, 2022 – Posted in: Soccer
Jadon Sancho and Marcus Rashford deserve plenty of criticism for their performances in a Manchester United shirt.
That’s the view of former Chelsea striker Tony Cascarino who was reacting on talkSPORT to the Red Devils’ 4-0 mauling to Brentford.
There were little to no positives for Erik ten Hag to take from the defeat, leaving the club rock bottom of the Premier League after two games.
Plenty of players have come in for criticism for their performances, not only on Saturday but for how they have played over recent weeks and months.
Cascarino singled out the two wide players for particular criticism.
He told Weekend Sports Breakfast: “Ten Hag doesn’t want to go after individuals, that’s exactly the thing you should be doing.
“I would certainly start with the two wide boys. Sancho and Rashford.
“Two young lads with loads of ability. Sancho has had an easy ride since he’s gone to Manchester United because Rashford has had much more difficulties on and off the field.
“Sancho has been so poor. I only ever see him getting to the byline, I don’t see him running at full-backs and taking them on.
“Rashford was up against Hickey, a young lad of 20. He had his first game in a Brentford shirt last week, he’s playing against a young 20-year-old full-back and hasn’t even attempted to go past him.
“He got caught early on in the game where he goes on his left side, gets caught and then he gives up and doesn’t try it again.
“So if it doesn’t happen for you then you won’t try it again?”
Cascarino also urged Rashford to move from Old Trafford amid transfer links to Paris Saint-Germain this summer.
He added: “What would the fee be? He’s in the final year of his contract, is it something United can turn down?
“I think he needs to move away from Manchester United. I don’t believe the fans are totally behind him.
“Of course they want him to do well, he’s a Manchester boy and want to see him to do well.
“The vibe is bad at Man United and can he play in that toxic atmosphere that is at the football club.”
