Ten Hag raves on Rashford after surpassing Ronaldo’s record

Marcus Rashford scored the lone goal for Manchester United over Real Betis in the second leg of their Europa leagu on Thursday night.

United progressed to the quarter finals of the league after securing a 5-1 aggregate on the Spanish team.

Erik Ten Hag was full of praise for Marcus Rashford after the striker scored a brilliant goal in the team’s win over Real Betis.

Rashford, who has now scored 30 goals in the current season is now Man Utd’s sixth-highest scorer in European competition, surpassing Cristiano Ronaldo’s record of 24 European goals for the Red Deʋils.


“The team was creating some chances,” Ten Hag said. “Rashy had some chances before and he missed some but he kept his belief, he kept trying, and got his reward.

“All good strikers know that not every chance you will get a goal but at this level, you don’t create five or six chances in a game so one of the two has to be in.

Asked about Rashford’s form, Ten Hag added: “(His form) tells you something about the team’s performance. It tells you something about him.

“If he keeps the focus, and makes sure he has the energy, the way, and the way he has to play in that system and style, he will get in scoring positions and then it’s about him, he has the ability to finish.”.

Manchester United will know their opponent on Friday when the draws for the quarter finals is conducted.
