Marcus never missed, he always was there.
Among the many mistakes of Jose Mourinho, who is not a villain in this story, was suspicious of Marcus Rashford. Relegated in several games, the Portuguese was obtained with the anxiety of the English player.
Unable to give a pass at the right time, unable to dribble and get away with it.
Time was running out. Mou’s time in Manchester was becoming more and more critical. Without a chance to sign a savior, we had to pull those relegated. It was time to wake up; the awakening of Marcus Rashford, and his friend Martial.
Then the striker’s alarm sounded. It was a day like any other. Only from that day on he had to become the hero of his team. He agreed.
Rashford’s performance increased dramatically, even before Mourinho’s farewell. Lukaku’s injury (beyond a weak performance) influenced. In such way, the player returned to the front. Everything changed.
Those dark days as left winger left a positive effect, showing in his game details of modern forward. Like Harry Kane, like Roberto Firmino.
Now he will fight for the position with Romelu Lukaku, although Solskjaer would devise an ecosystem where the two coexist. This is quite likely in view of the evolution of English.
Wayne Rooney’s successor is still standing.
The England team continues to see its greatest promise in years to be forged in their best club.
And Marcus Rashford doesn’t think about falling asleep again…
The good days seem to have returned to Manchester, although the sun does not rise in the city, a Solskjaer has caused all this effect. From the atmosphere in the club, to the consolidation of our protagonist.
Goals, assists, dribbles, duels. Free throws, unmarks, key passes.
Things are different now. Since that breakthrough in the elite, there was no remembrance of such a determining Marcus. But now you don’t remember, you live. He is here.
