19-Year-Old Star Faces Stiff Competition in the Central Striking Role

Legend Ryan Giggs believes that Manchester United star Marcus Rashford will find it difficult to play as a striker for both club and country.

Since breaking into the scene for Manchester United in spectacular fashion around 18 months ago, Marcus Rashford has gone on to establish himself as one of the brightest talents in world football and there is no doubting that the 19-year-old has a promising future ahead of him.

Despite his tender years, Rashford is already a regular for both United and the England national team, and he has already impressed this season with a number of notable performances.

While there is no doubting the teenager’s wonderful ability, he has been unable to cement a place in his preferred role as a central striker at Old Trafford or indeed for the Three Lions due to the fact that Romelu Lukaku and Harry Kane are ahead of him in the pecking order at club and country level respectively.

Now Ryan Giggs has gone on to speak about Rashford’s situation and has stated that the youngster could struggle to become the main striker, either for United or for England in the foreseeable future.

Giggs said on ITV of the United star, “Yeah that could be a problem for him. Like you say, he’s not going to play centre-forward of United too often with Lukaku, Ibrahimovic as well. For England with (Harry) Kane, he’s not going to play centre-forward.”
