Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag staying ‘focused’ on priorities amid takeover talk

Ten Hag believes his style of play has helped Marcus Rashford enjoy the most prolific season of his career.

The forward has scored 30 goals – 27 for United and three for England – after only getting five last year and Ten Hag feels his decision to bring in former striker Benni McCarthy to coach the forwards has also helped Rashford become more potent.

Ten Hag added: “I think the most important [thing is] of course the way of play that gives him base and structure and the way of play is in his favour. I knew his skills. You also bring staff around who can make him better and make progress and I thought we needed one in the staff who was specific for strikers.

“He progressed during the season. He was not in the best shape when he started the season but the way of playing gives him a base and he brings his skills in and his attitude and mentality and that is bringing in a lot of progress and brings the team a lot of joy and gives him a lot of goals and us a lot of wins.”
