Marcus Rashford is not getting regular action on the pitch and he’s being advised by many football fans and pundits to leave Old Trafford if he must reach his full potential.

As it stands, the young striker is the second-choice centre-forward striker behind Romelu Lukaku and that seems not changing anytime soon unless the England international puts in extraordinary performance during matches.

Despite numerous calls on the player to change club in January, United Legend Danny Webber has advised Rashford on what to do to reclaim his spot on Mourinho’s starting XI.

According to Webber, the young striker needs to start scoring goals from all cylinders in the little time he spent on the field of play.

“We know Lukaku is the number one on the team-sheet when it comes to the number 9 role. It is up to Marcus to keep pushing and when he gets on the pitch and gets game time, [he will have to] score his goals, which is his currency.” he said

He charged the club’s academy product to be more ruthless in front of goal so as to make things more difficult for the Portuguese gaffer while making his first eleven for matches.

Webber further reaffirmed his confidence in Rashford’s ability to reclaim his spot in the Portuguese team but admits he would need to work his socks off.

Rashford is currently on a three-match ban as result of his unneeded headbutt during Burnley game a week before the last international break. He wasn’t in the club’s matchday squad against Watford yesterday and would miss their next Premier League matches.
