Jamie Redknapp has predicted that Marcus Rashford will have to leave Manchester United after being pushed down the pecking order by Alexis Sanchez.
Rashford played and scored against Yeovil in the FA Cup on Friday night and we write in 16 Conclusions that the England youngster will benefit from Sanchez being at the club.
Redknapp disagrees, telling Sky Sports: “I just feel for people like Marcus Rashford. They go down the pecking order and he’s probably thinking where do I fit in now.
“Part of the Premier League is having these players but I just feel sorry when someone like Marcus Rashford is going to be thinking ‘this is another pathway blocked for me.’
“He might have to go in the end. It doesn’t help your confidence. Every time you are training you think ‘I’m not going to play on Saturday’.
“This is a great talent, make no mistake. I speak to players who go to the England camp with him and they are as impressed with him as anybody.
“He probably needs to go and play football somewhere.
“It is a shame but that’s modern day football and that’s why it’s so hard for young British players to get opportunities.”
