Ryan Giggs: Marcus Rashford has to start switching up his game

by Tanveer Arayan

Ryan Giggs insists Marcus Rashford needs to mix up his game when he’s not scoring at Manchester United this season.

The 19-year-old made a significant impact when he was introduced to England’s 2-0 victory over Lithuania on Sunday night off the bench.

However, he hasn’t had the same impact in front of goal after his incredible debut season under Louis van Gaal last campaign, which would be extremely hard to follow up on.

Speaking about the Englishman, Giggs claims Rashford needs to have a Plan B if things aren’t working out.

“He’s a threat, he’s a talent, but one thing I would say is that when he’s not scoring he needs to mix his game up a little bit,” he said.

“More one-twos, laying it off, because at the moment he’s getting the ball and taking players on, but you can’t do that every time.

“Sometimes you have to keep the defender guessing, just control pass, lay it off, and then next time run at him, just constantly cat and mouse.

“Keep the defender guessing, because he has got everything, he can run in behind with or without the ball.”

Rashford has made 22 Premier League appearances under Mourinho this season, scoring three times and providing an assist for Juan Mata.

He’s likely to start against West Brom tomorrow with Zlatan Ibrahimovic still suspended and a goal would undoubtedly be a massive boost for his confidence.
