Roy Keane didn’t hold Marcus Rashford back, claiming that the Newcastle United transfer target ‘played like a kid’ recently. as he told Sky Sports.
The former midfielder is referring to the 24-year-old’s performance in Manchester United’s 4-0 win at Liverpool on Tuesday night.
Rashford, who appears to have expressed his intention to leave Old Trafford this summer, started the game but along with his team-mates struggled throughout the game as Liverpool made uproar.
Evidence suggests Newcastle United’s big bags appear to be looking at the Old Trafford Academy product.
While the team he faced a few nights ago, Liverpool, are big fans of the struggling England striker.
Still, in his typical fashion, Keane didn’t hold back to vent his anger at Man United’s recent performance and what Rashford was producing at Anfield.
“Rashford played like a kid up front,” Keane said. “Okay, there wasn’t great service (against Liverpool).
“But the bit or two he got, in the first half when you thought you were in goal. A bad mark.”
Rashford’s career needs to resume, whether in Man United colors, Newcastle’s black and white or elsewhere in Europe.
Perhaps Thursday’s appointment of Erik ten Hag to Manchester United will give him the confidence and boost he needs.
The Dutchman will officially take charge next season and someone like Rashford is the kind of player he would normally be happy to work with.
But talent is one thing while commitment, form and confidence are another with Rashfords currently out of sight and nowhere to be seen.
