EPL: Ten Hag gives Rashford condition to return to Man Utd’s starting XI
Manchester United manager, Erik ten Hag has said Marcus Rashford will get back into the team when he deserves it.
Ten Hag benched Rashford for the 2-1 win over Chelsea on Wednesday.
This followed a poor display in the defeat at Newcastle United four days earlier.
Rashford has struggled for form all season, scoring only two goals in 19 games.
Ten Hag, speaking to reporters on Friday, said Rashford has to earn the right to return to the team, the way Harry Maguire and Scott McTominay have fought their way back into the starting XI.
“Rashford is an incredible, good player. You can’t do it with 11 players. He can’t play every game and he’s not, in this moment, in the form he was last year but I am sure he will get there.
“What I said about Scott McTominay and Harry Maguire, it’s up to them. The team will always line themselves up and the best players who form the best team will play,” Ten Hag told reporters ahead of their clash against Bournemouth.
