Manchester United legendary striker Wayne Rooney was one of the main names during the Red Devils’ game against Nottingham Forest in the City Ground for the FA Cup Fifth Round, as the Englishman analyzed the clash for the BBC and gave an important message on Marcus Rashford and his lack of effectiveness with the team.

In this sense, it would be worth remembering that Rooney was recently sacked as a manager from Birmingham City due to the poor performances his team had in the Championship, after which he went on a luxury trip with his wife Coleen before taking the role of commentator for the BBC as a new step in his career.

His first game as an analyst couldn’t be more special, since the topscorer in Manchester United’s history started his functions for BBC with a game of the Red Devils where Marcus Rashford, labeled as a potential Rooney’s heir at the club, led the attack of Ten Hag’s side against Forest.

In this respect, it was unavoidable for BBC not to ask Rooney for his opinion and analysis on Rashford and his performances with Manchester United, and the legendary retired striker didn’t avoid the challenge.

What did Rooney say about Rashford?

Rooney was clear on Rashford’s needs at Manchester United to succeed as a top striker in the institution, and after explaining that Rashford’s body language doesn’t reflect how he’s feeling, he revealed what the squad needs to do to get the best from him. “I think that’s where Casemiro, Varane and Bruno have to get more out of him… bigger personalities. But maybe having a little go at him to get him fired up a little bit and get that reaction from him”, said Rooney.
