Before the trip to the Midlands, Marcus Rashford had scored 10 goals in 21 appearances in all competitions. After an impressive display at the World Cup in Qatar, the England star continued to maintain great form in Man United’s win over Nottingham Forest.
However, Rashford was left out of the starting line-up for the Reds against Wolves – the official reason given by Erik ten Hag was for ‘discipline’.
Rio Ferdinand said: “Every 90 minutes, he is scoring and creating. This is the period when Marcus is in the best form of his career at Man United.
It’s disappointing, as a fan you want to see your best players and Marcus is one of the best. He’s one of the first names that deserves to be in the starting lineup right now, so that’s disappointing.
At the same time, you are satisfied with the final decision of the coach. If there is something behind the scenes that makes Ten Hag unhappy, you will be disciplined.”
