Former Manchester United player Mark Hughes harshly criticized the performances of Marcus Rashford. The fact is that the Englishman this season is not nearly as good as the previous ones. Hughes believes that Rashford has problems off the field.

When you don't have full focus on football, it is very difficult to expect to give the maximum. ‘I don’t think the players go out with the intention of not trying, that doesn’t happen, but I think Rashford has slipped back into the mindset that he had prior to last season – he doesn’t look happy,’ Hughes said on the No Tippy Tappy Football podcast, as quoted by METRO!

‘He obviously had a lot going on outside the game which maybe took something away from him, and perhaps he just needs to focus back solely on what his role is when he’s asked to put on the shirt for Man United.'

Mark Hughes: Without the ball, Rashford is probably one of the worst

Mark is not happy with the way the United players behave, especially when they lose the ball. He compared them to Manchester City players, who manage to regain possession immediately after losing the ball.

Hughes again put the accent on Rashford and believes that he is the worst player when he does not have the ball at his feet.
I look at United and think a lot of their problems stem from the wide areas. When the ball goes past them, their response is just not good enough.

The lads need to track back and if they lose possession, they have to regain it as quick as they can. If you compare them to how Man City react when they lose the ball, it’s chalk and cheese. If Phil Foden loses the ball on the right hand-side, he wins it back, same with Jack Grealish.

Rashford is an outstanding talent and is one of the best in the league when it comes to taking someone on, but without the ball, he’s probably one of the worst. He’s got to sort that part out.’
