Manchester United legend Ryan Giggs has advised Marcus Rashford to add some variety to his all-round game.
The England forward made a positive impression when he came off the bench in the Three Lions’ 2-0 World Cup win over Lithuania at Wembley on Sunday.
Despite not having scored in the Premier League since September, the United starlet has still been impressive in patches, albeit in a wide role due to the form of Zlatan Ibrahimovic. However, the 19-year-old has been given a chance through the middle in recent weeks due to Zlatan’s suspension.
Despite his undoubted talent, Giggs has offered some valuable advice to Rashford.
Talking to ITV, he said: “Rashford is a threat, he’s a talent. The one thing I would say just at the moment, because he’s not scoring, he just needs to mix his game up a little bit.
“More one-twos, more just laying it off, because at the moment he’s getting the ball and he’s taking players on – it’s working – but you can’t do that every time.
“Sometimes you’ve just got to keep the defender guessing. Just control, pass, lay it off and then the next time you run at him.
“It’s constantly cat and mouse and keep the defender guessing because he has got everything. He can run in behind, with and without the ball.”
