Thierry Henry: Manchester United Star Must Consider Leaving
Former Arsenal and FC Barcelona superstar Thierry Henry has named a Manchester United star he believes should consider leaving the club.
English forward Marcus Rashford has played just 39 minutes in the Premier League in United’s last five games, something Henry is concerned about.
The Frenchman suggested the 20-year-old might have to consider leaving the club to get more game time, although he understands Rashford wants to stay at the team he made his professional debut for.
"One of the most important things for me is that you have to play," Henry said on Sky Sports.
"You cannot be on the bench and missing games, missing learning about the game and stopping that momentum, and an example is Rashford.
"Michael Owen had the opportunity to back up what he did the year before because he played, and he played, and he played, and he played - and I can give you more examples.
"But Rashford at times could not capitalise on what he did from that year (after his debut), because sometimes he is playing on the right, (sometimes) on the left.
"Leave is a strong word. Obviously being from there, he wants to play for United. But he has to play and it is becoming even more difficult for him since Sanchez has arrived.
Rashford has featured 37 times for United this season, scoring 10 goals and assisting a further eight strikes.
