Marcus Rashford Reacts To Michael Owen’s Criticism That He Is NOT A Proving Goalscorer

Manchester United striker, Marcus Rashford has responded to Owen’s claim that he is not a natural goalscorer.

Speaking ahead of England’s match against Bulgaria, Michael Owen suggested that Rashford lacks the killer instinct which is required at the top level. Owen said that it will not be possible for Rashford to develop it.

Marcus Rashford was on the media duty at St. George’s Park on when he was asked for his take on Owen’s comments.

“He [Owen] can only go on what he sees,” Rashford said. “Whereas the people around me [know]. Especially when I was younger, the reason why you started playing is because you see things that you like and for me, it was goals and watching exciting people doing exciting things with the ball.

“So, the important thing is what I know. I know what I want, what I want to become and what I will become if I keep my mind on it.”

The 21-year-old forward said training alongside countryman Harry Kane is something that inspires him to improve his performance.

“If you watch training, then you’d see how it all works,” Rashford said. “I could use Harry Kane as an example. He’s one of the best finishers that I’ve played with and whenever we do finishing, in my head, it’s about being as close to him as possible.

“So if he scores six, you want to score six, if he scores seven, you want to score eight. Little things like that are the bits that people never see. Even though we’re fighting for the same position, or to be in the same team, we really do drive each other on and it’s very important that you have that sort of atmosphere within a team.”
