‘He played like a child’: Roy Keane slams 24-year-old striker in 4-0 defeat to Liverpool

Arsenal-linked Marcus Rashford had a night to forget against Liverpool Wednesday night at Anfield, as Manchester United suffered a humiliating defeat.

Last month, 90min stated that the 24-year-old England international is contemplating his future at Old Trafford.

There’s a potential he’ll leave at the conclusion of the season, and Arsenal has been mentioned as a club interested in his services.

In the summer, Mikel Arteta’s team will require two forwards. Alexandre Lacazette and Eddie Nketiah are both poised to leave the club at the conclusion of their contracts, and many see Rashford as a very good replacement.

However, the Englishman’s performance last night, as well as Manchester United great Roy Keane’s post-game appraisal, may have swayed Arteta’s decision.

Keane was furious after his previous team suffered a humiliating defeat against one of their main rivals. Manchester United barely fought back, and Rashford’s few chances were also squandered.

Following the game, the Irishman stated on Sky Sports:

“It’s not anger, now I think it’s just sadness.

“You look at the United team, there’s no heart, no soul, no leaders. I’ve never known so many players wanting to leave Manchester United… the greatest club in the world.

“You could see after the Everton defeat they have already left the building. They’re gone.

“Rashford up front, he played like a child.”

Rashford, like the most of his colleagues, struggled yesterday. He didn’t get much service, and when he did, he couldn’t make it matter.

However, this does not imply that he is a horrible player. The 24-year-old has proven his quality for Manchester United over the last few years, and while he hasn’t been himself this season, he is still a terrific footballer.

This summer, Arsenal really needs two top-tier center-forwards. Rashford cannot be their priority target because they require someone who can guarantee them 20 or 25 goals per season.

However, the Manchester United star’s versatility and age mean he’s still a good choice for the Gunners, and if he decides to leave Old Trafford this summer, it wouldn’t be surprising if Arsenal made a play for him.
