Former Manchester United star, Mark Hughes has hit out at forward Marcus Rashford, saying the 26-year-old is one of the worst players in the Premier League off the ball.
Rashford has struggled to make an impact for the Red Devils this season.
The England international has scored just two goals in 19 appearances for Erik ten Hag’s side so far this term.
He came under fire for his subdued display in Man United’s 1-0 defeat to Newcastle United last weekend and was dropped for their 1-0 win against Chelsea on Wednesday evening.
“I don’t think the players go out with the intention of not trying, that doesn’t happen, but I think Rashford has slipped back into the mindset that he had prior to last season – he doesn’t look happy,” Hughes said on the No Tippy Tappy Football podcast.
“He obviously had a lot going on outside the game which maybe took something away from him, and perhaps he just needs to focus back solely on what his role is when he’s asked to put on the shirt for Man United.
“I look at United and think a lot of their problems stem from the wide areas. When the ball goes past them, their response is just not good enough.
“Rashford is an outstanding talent and is one of the best in the league when it comes to taking someone on, but without the ball, he’s probably one of the worst. He’s got to sort that part out.”
