As per reports, Manchester United head coach Erik ten Hag has set a 20-goal target for forward Marcus Rashford in the ongoing 2022-23 season. The 24-year-old has been crucial for the Red Devils as recovered from a horrible start to the new Premier League campaign with some performances.
With two goals and an assist against Arsenal on 4 September, Rashford led the team to their fourth Premier League win in a row. As per The Sun, Ten Hag has promised to help Rashford secure his place in England's 2022 FIFA World Cup squad held in Qatar later this year. The Sun's source talked about the pair’s relationship and claimed:
"The manager wants Marcus to be United's number one striker and lead the line-up front. He believes Marcus has the ability to become one of the world's best and wants him to express himself in matches."
The source continued, “He is always telling him to use his pace and skills when he gets a chance. He told Marcus he will easily score 20 this season. They have a great relationship and Marcus is really happy."
Taking about Manchester United manager, Erik Ten Hag has been on-point with his tactics so far in the season barring the first two games. In a recent interview, the Dutchman talked about the team’s future and his approach with players as the club will be playing a lot of games across multiple tournaments.
While speaking to Sky Sports, he said, "I am not such a dreamer, I am more the reality, and I knew it was a big challenge and hard work. I have been so busy I didn't notice it has been 100 days, but that is a good signal. What I am doing is a football process. I love to manage that on and also off the pitch. I really enjoy it, it excites and challenges me and it is good to have this experience."
"I do have emotion when I make decisions, use intuition and feelings but they have to be rational and strategic if you want to go in the direction where Manchester United want to go, and we all have to be on the same page," he continued.
