Erik Ten Hag has spoken out on Marcus Rashford’s brilliant form under his management, and on his future. The England international’s contract runs out in 2023, but there is an option for a further year on the side of the club.
Which means that he is expected to stay at Old Trafford until 2024. And Ten Hag has confirmed that he will be doing so. Manchester United are keen on extending his stay beyond his current deal, and could find an agreement now that his duty with England is over.
Erik Ten Hag praises Marcus Rashford and confirms plans to stay
“He [Marcus Rashford] has to make a decision,” Erik Ten Hag said, according to United’s official website. “The only thing we can do is show him this is the best club to be in, which has to do with the culture of the club and also in the way we are working, in the way we play and the way we train and if we are offering the right environment to progress.
”It’s a financial issue as well. Then it is up to him to make the decision. But for one-and-a-half years, he will be here.“
“From the first moment, I recognised huge potential,” added the manager. “And now to get out the potential, I believe when Marcus’s positioning is on the back of the defending line, there is almost no better player in the world.
”There is Mbappe in this moment, a type like him, but when he [Marcus] is getting in that position, he’s great and you see he’s really improved also out of possession.“
