Marcus Rashford could be forced to leave Manchester United, says Dennis Wise.
Marcus Rashford could be forced to leave Manchester United to secure regular first-team football, according to Dennis Wise.
The 20-year-old, who has missed the club’s last two matches with a hip problem, hasn’t started a Premier League match since the 2-2 draw against Burnley on December 26 and with the January arrival of Alexis Sanchez, the England international has subsequently been limited to only 19 minutes of league football.
Rashford, who burst onto the scene with a debut double on his senior debut against Midtjylland in the Europa League in 2016, is behind Romelu Lukaku in Jose Mourinho’s pecking order of attackers and has often played in a wide attacking role by competing by Anthony Martial rather than playing as an out-and-out striker.
Wise said: “At some stage if he doesn’t get regular football that will be something of a consideration for him further down the line.
“There are some quality players that they have brought in. There is Lukaku that he has got to try and get himself in front of – I am not sure he will.
“Although Lukaku has not been performing fantastically well. Sanchez is another one that Mourinho has brought in. It’s about where they are going to fit Rashford in and what position.
“At times he has mostly played wide and that is not really his main position but I think he will accept that position because he wants to play.”
“I’d like to see him playing constantly and scoring goals because I think he is capable of doing that.”
