Despite earning £375k-a-week, Marcus Rashford seems ‘really frustrated’ with Man Utd’s EPL 2023/24 season

Marcus Rashford was United’s brightest star last season. United finished third in the Premier League and won the Carabao Cup, the club’s first trophy since 2017 thanks to Rashford’s stellar performances across all competitions. After a disappointing campaign in 2021, everyone witnessed a reborn Marcus Rashford in the 22/23 season.

This prompted United to hand him a bumper contract and tie him to the club for another five years. The Englishman still needs to recapture the form that helped him excel last year, having scored just one goal and assisted one in the Premier League this season. His performance against Brighton was heavily criticized by pundits and fans, with many pointing out his body language as well.

Manchester United have started the new EPL season in the worst fashion possible. The Red Devils have only picked up six points from five games, scoring six and conceding ten, leaving them in 13th place. With City leading with a 9-point margin over United, it’s safe to say that the club’s title aspirations are as good as over, and they can now start looking for a way to qualify for the Champions League next season by making the top four.

While fingers are being pointed to no one in particular for United’s poor start to the season, Marcus Rashford has looked lost so far, and with his performance against Brighton where he selfishly went for a shot when he could have passed the ball to Rasmus Hojlund to score his debut goal, the Englishman is starting to become a subject of criticism from fans and pundits.

“He had close to 10 shots, and his tendency to overdo it literally denied Rasmus Hojlund a full debut goal. His body language was too negative at times,” said MEN columnist Samuel Luckhurst, who gave the United star a 5/10 rating for his performance against Brighton on Saturday.

What is Marcus Rashford’s salary at Manchester United?

Marcus Rashford almost single-handedly carried United for most of last season, especially after the World Cup break. The former United academy star ended the season with 17 Premier League goals and 30 goals altogether, making last season the best in his career so far.

His goalscoring form last season led to some very swift contract talks this summer, with United eventually tying the 25-year-old to a new long-term deal that will see him pocket £375,000 per week.

The new contract will run until 2028, but with his form early in the season, United will hope for Rashford to get back on track and prove why they made him one of the highest-paid players at the club.

Can Rashford beat his goal tally for last season?
