The 2022/23 season proved to be a turning point for Marcus Rashford, as he showcased his true potential on the field.
With an impressive tally of 30 goals and 11 assists across all competitions, Rashford established himself as a key contributor to Manchester United’s success.
This remarkable turnaround came after a relatively subdued 2021-22 campaign, during which Rashford found the net just five times.
However, under the guidance of manager Erik ten Hag, the forward experienced a revival, rejuvenating his performances and reminding fans of his immense talent.
