LVG warns young player not ready for League yet

Marcus Rashford

Manchester United manager, Louis Van Gaal has state that, Marcus Rashford is still not yet ready for regular Premiership football despite his impressive start since debut in Europe against Midtjylland.

The 18-year-old has scored eight times in 13 appearances and has made the likes of Arsenal and Manchester City fall to his feet.

Injuries to the likes of Waza (Rooney) and Martial, served the youngster a dinner and he ate it to satisfaction.

However, the Dutchman has claimed that the young prodigy striker has still not hit the target yet and must bring more to the tables of men.

“[The young players] are not ready, I’m sorry. Also Marcus Rashford is not ready, he knows that. He can learn a lot,” Van Gaal is quoted as saying by The Telegraph.


“You always need guts to put youngsters in the squad and also in the lineup, but of course the academy and all the academy coaches have credit for these players and also the scouts who discovered these boys.

“I am a little part of it. But that part is very important because you need the guts to [put them in the team].”

Rashford was among United’s starters as they saw off Crystal Palace 2-0 in a routine fashion on Wednesday evening.
