‘That’s wrong’: BBC pundit slams what he’s hearing about Martinez & Rashford amid Man United manager claims

No one seems to be the wiser regarding Manchester United’s next manager.

Erik ten Hag can do no more. His team recorded an eighth-placed finish in the Premier League – Manchester United’s worst-ever during the Premier League era.

But they put smiles on fans’ faces by beating Manchester City in the FA Cup final on Saturday at Wembley. But will it keep ten Hag in a job?

Whether it does or doesn’t. Two players are going to be crucial next season and that’s Marcus Rashford and Lisandro Martinez.

Everyone has seen the levels Manchester United can hit in the Premier League when Rashford is at his goalscoring best – he scored 17 goals last season, but only managed seven this term.

As for Martinez, he only played 648 minutes of Premier League football because of injury issues. As he proved in the FA Cup final, if he is starting, then the team is a different animal.

It was suggested that if Manchester United decided to change managers and appoint Ipswich Town boss, Kieran McKenna, then he wouldn’t be able to command the dressing room or those players.

Robbie Savage was trying to debunk this nonsense from a Man United fan, including how the likes of Martinez and Rashford simply wouldn’t listen to him.

The former midfielder stated all of that is ‘wrong’ as he believes McKenna, who was part of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s coaching staff, would have the authority and respect of the Old Trafford dressing room, as he told BBC’s 606.
