ROY KEANE has revealed he doubted whether Marcus Rashford could become Manchester United’s main man.

However, Keane has also admitted how misplaced his doubts were.

Speaking on Sky Sports, the Man Utd Utd icon said: “He’s in great form.

“I wasn’t sure if he had that personality but he has, he’s taken the responsibility.

“I think he’s enjoyed the responsibility. He’s in the form of his life, clear mentally, he’s focusing on his football now, it’s his priority and he’s getting rewards.”

Rashford has been in excellent form since the World Cup and across the season.

The 25-year-old has scored 25 goals this season, a personal best for him, while also adding nine assists.

His goals have helped fire United into the top four and keep them in the hunt for four trophies this season.

Rashford scored in last week’s Carabao Cup final and scored in United’s Europa League first leg against Barcelona.

The England ace will be hoping to add to his tally against Liverpool at Anfield.


Should he line up on his favoured left side, then Rashford will face off against Trent Alexander-Arnold.

In an interview with The Telegraph, the Liverpool star described Rashford as a “threat”.

He said: “He is in very good form. But he is one of those players where he is always a threat and always has been. Players get judged on their stats.

“For strikers it is all about if you are scoring, or assisting. But even last year you knew when against him he was a massive threat. It was all there.

“Maybe that is something those watching do not really see, but as a player out there you feel it.

“It wouldn’t matter whether I was up against him and he has scored ten games in a row, or if he has only scored ten over two seasons, you feel that threat out there and know you have to be at the top of your game to deal with it.

“He is one of those players who has that.”
