Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag should be putting his faith in and making him a central part of his new team, believes dwight Yorke.

Rashford had a dreadful season last time around, partly due to injury but also because of woefully poor form a he scored just four Premier League goals in 25 appearances.

There was much talk of the England international leaving Old Trafford this summer, but nothing has come of it, with no suitors emerging for him after a campaign to forget.

However, Red Devils hero Yorke believes there is much more to come from the 24-year-old, who he rates very highly and thinks just needs an arm around the shoulder and a bit of belief from his manager.

‘I’m a huge fan. I spent some time around the club and watched training very close. Marcus, for me, is one of the best players at ,’ Yorke told the

‘As a coach now, a head coach, I’d be saying to him he will be playing. I remember my time at , when Brian Little came in. I was around 24 and he put his arm around me and said: “Listen, you are my guy, my go-to guy”.’

Yorke has spent time at the Manchester United training ground while earning his coaching badges and has worked closely with Rashford, and believes he brings a huge amount to the Red Devils.

‘When I look at what Rashford brings to the team, he’s a local lad for starters and has been at the club ever since [he was a kid],’ said the former forward. ‘He is very passionate about the club.

‘He is quick, fast, can jink past defenders. He can score, he can create. I think we’ve got a player there who somehow needs a little bit of love and attention and also needs to hear the correct words, as to you are in that team, you are one of my main guys.

‘He just needs, as I say, a little bit of trust and belief in him. I have no doubt you will probably see the best out of Marcus Rashford this season.’
