Man Utd Treble winner Schmeichel urges Rashford to focus on set position

Manchester United Treble winner Peter Schmeichel has urged Marcus Rashford to focus on being an outright No9.

Schmeichel believes he can get even better by improving his finishing after he shone in the Red Devils’ 4-2 Carabao Cup win against Aston Villa on Thursday.

Rashford was on the scoresheet in the second half with a well-taken goal as United came from behind twice to eventually overcome their Premier League rivals.

“It’s alright to be versatile, but I think for somebody like him he needs to have a position that he can fully focus on,” Schmeichel told Sky Sports.

“So when he does get into the number 9 position, he does get into really good positions where he can finish it. But I think if he wants to be a number 9, he’s got to commit to that and work on his finishing.”
