Rashford Rise Continues As He Scoops United Player Of The Month Award

How far can the young man go?


As 2016 goes, Marcus Rashford hasn't had a bad one.

Thrown into the Manchester United side as a relative unknown against FC Midtjylland back in February, the 18-year-old's career has gone from strength to strength.

After bagging two debut goals against the Danish side, he has now scored 12 goals in 27 games for the Red Devils which is an incredible record for a boy so wet behind the ears. 

The recognition continues to roll in for England's third youngest goalscorer as he has now bagged United's player of the month award for September. 

The Wythenshawe lad beat off competition from the vastly more experienced Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Ander Herrera to the take the award and we're predicting that it won't be the last prize of its kind that Rashford will win.
