Ryan Giggs reveals Marcus Rashford’s best position at Manchester United

by Tanveer Arayan


Ryan Giggs has revealed Marcus Rashford would be better utilised as a centre-forward for Manchester United.

The Welshman worked under Louis van Gaal, who gave the youngster his debut in the Europa League against FC Midtjylland back in February.

Since then he has quickly burst onto the scene, with another double against Arsenal, the winner in the Manchester derby and even his goal just three minutes into his England debut at Euro 2016.

Speaking about Rashford, Giggs insists the Englishman can play centre-forward very well.

“He is a centre-forward. He plays the centre-forward position so well,” he said.

“He can come on and be an impact player. There is a lot of pressure on him because of the season he had last year.”

With Ibrahimovic’s arrival at Old Trafford, he isn’t expected to have as much play time this season, but he now has the opportunity to learn from one of the best strikers in the world.

Ibrahimovic has adapted to life in England very well and has gotten his Man United career off to the perfect start with three goals in two Premier League showings.

Rashford will be used mainly as a substitute for Ibrahimovic or will play on the wing, however with Giggs claiming his talents would be best utilised playing as a centre-forward, it opens up plenty of options for Mourinho and we may see him in action soon.
