Rashford’s Man Utd decision
Manchester United star Marcus Rashford must leave the Red Devils to fulfil his potential as a central striker, says Arsenal legend Ian Wright.
“I think that Rashford, especially when he burst onto the scene, we saw flashes of a striker that can go into the space and he can link up, and he can finish,” Wright said on BBC Radio 5 Live.
“Now, what’s happened to him since he’s been at United on the left or the right, wherever they play him, he’s played everywhere apart from up front learning his trade.
“He’s got pace, he’s got skill, he’s got finishing ability. He’s been playing in roles that have taken the edge of those sides of his game.
“Rashford’s got massive, massive, decisions to make in the next year, 18 months for me.
“He’s either got to leave Manchester United and play, and play in a position where he’s going to start to be that player we all thought he was going to be when he burst onto the scene, scoring goals left, right and centre every competition he has played in or he’s going to have to stay there, whether it’s Mourinho or whoever it is, and maybe playing on the left, maybe playing on the right, maybe playing up front.”
Giroud on Chelsea contract
Olivier Giroud says there is currently no plans to discuss a contract extension with Chelsea.
Giroud signed for the Blues from Arsenal in January but was linked with a move away from Stamford Bridge in the summer.
The Frenchman is under contract until the end of the season.
He said: “I still have one year of contract, plus possibly another year.
“The management of the club was rather favourable to give it to me.
“I do not know yet, we will do the accounts in April-May, but I do not exclude any possibility. We’ll see.”
