Former Liverpool defender, now SkySport pundit, Jamie Carragher, has urged Manchester United’s Marcus Rashford to leave the Red Devils, suggesting that he joins a team like Everton.
Carragher believes Lukaku is a better striker than the England international and he would need to leave the shadows of the Belgian if he’s ever going to maximize his potential.
Rashford has had a great international break with two goals from two matches. He scored in England’s home defeat to Spain and the 1 – 0 friendly victory over Switzerland.
He was handed the chance to start both games by England manager, Gareth Southgate, despite being selected from the beginning for just one of Man United’s four Premier League fixtures in 2018/19; Rashford has now played more international minutes (180) this season than club minutes (121).
Liverpool legend Carragher was working as a pundit for Sky Sports when he addressed Rashford’s role at Old Trafford, making the suggestion that leaving United for a club outside the Premier League’s top six would be a wise idea for the 20-year-old to push on with his career.
“The problem he’s got, and it’s the same for every young striker at big clubs, nothing’s harder than that position,” Carragher opined.
“Romelu Lukaku is in front of Rashford and I don’t see Rashford displacing him as long as he is there.
“But remember when Lukaku was at Chelsea and he had to come away and go to Everton. Then he ended up as top scorer and got his move to Man United.
“Possibly Everton is the sort of club you are looking at, just below the top six, for someone like Rashford, similar to what Lukaku did.
“You know you are going to play every week as the centre-forward and you know if you have a couple of games where you don’t score then you are still going to play the next week.”
