Rashford has scored only eight goals this season

Marcus Rashford will be the FA Cup 2023-24 final hero against Manchester City, according to André Onana. With his buddy Onana at his side, Rashford also will have the entire summer to concentrate on his comeback for United.

The Manchester United academy graduate went into 2023–2024 fresh off a career-best period in which he recorded 30 goals for the inaugural time and was crucial to the team’s third-place finish and Carabao Cup victory, snapping a six-year trophy drought.

He scored throughout each round of the competition, including the championship match against Newcastle United.

He was rightfully named Sir Matt Busby Player of the Year at the end of the season, and in July, he signed a five-year contract extension with the club, which was eager to honour his contributions and stave off any outside interest.

Rashford has struggled to continue his recent high-scoring ways in consecutive seasons, managing only eight goals in 42 games across all competitions.

As a result, the 26-year-old was unexpectedly left out of England boss Gareth Southgate’s 30-man preliminary Euros roster this week. even though Rashford hasn’t shown his best performances lately.

“Rashford – how many goals did he score last season? (30) How many goals did he score this season? (8) We are talking about the same player.

“He’s a bad player? So last season he was good, [and] this season he is bad? No. It is just a moment. You can have a bad season. You can have a bad start. But the most important thing is how you end, and Rashy, for me, is one of the best players in the world.

“But he is facing difficulty, like us, not only him and me but the whole club,” the shot-stopper continued. “And he will come back, and I know my killer will score some important goals for us. Hopefully, [on] Saturday, he will score two, and we win the FA Cup.”

André Onana’s underwhelming first season at Manchester United

Onana was one of the players brought in during the summer to help United advance, but after an injury-plagued season in which they finished eighth, things have gone wrong.

As United had a forgettable season, Onana is by no means the only one who struggled; Rashford, a local talent, was the most well-known underachiever.

After a poor start to the season, the £47.2 million custodian has improved in the second half, proving to himself that “you are never too strong in life.”
