Last week marked Marcus Rashford’s fifth year as a Man Utd first team player, and he marked the occasion with a goal against Newcastle.

Rashford has been dominating headlines for the right reasons recently, and he’s been named in Time Magazine’s top 100 influential people due to his great charity work and positive impact on the school dinners situation in the UK. He’s become an amazing role model already at the age of just 23, but perhaps he doesn’t quite get the plaudits that he deserves for his impact on the pitch. And I’m amazed by this.

He’s now scored 18 goals this season, and when you combine that with his 10 assists you can see the level of impact he has at Man Utd. 28 goal contributions in 39 games is a high rate of productivity by anyone’s standards.

Those numbers put him in a category with the likes of Kane, Son, Sterling, and Salah, and you can only see him getting better as he matures even more as a player and a man.

He’s equalled David Beckham’s goalscoring record at Man Utd, and we expect to see many more to come in the next few years. He clearly has big goals on and off the pitch, and on it he will be doing his very best to help United compete with their Manchester rivals for the title this season. 

He’s an inspiration to so many both on and off the pitch, in terms of his positive contributions, and I can’t wait to see more from Marcus as he realises his goals. #mmlove
