Marcus Rashford believes that he has given Jose Mourinho a decision to make ahead of the Manchester derby, after scoring a hat trick for the England Under-21s.
The 6-1 victory over Norway marked Rashford’s Under-21 debut. The striker also scored on his debut in the Europa League, Premier League and during his first game for the England senior side. We’re beginning to think that he might be made of magic.
Rashford has not yet started a match for Manchester United this season, but was happy to give both Jose Mourinho and England manager Sam Allardyce a nudge.
“As a young player you want to make the manager make decisions,” Rashford told BT Sport.
“It [the Manchester derby] going to be a great game and everyone’s looking forward to it.
“It means a lot [to play well in front of Allardyce]. England’s seniors have a new manager. They’re doing well at the moment.
“The Under-21s are trying to get into that set-up and it’s important that he’s here to see us, not only me.”
Rashford was then asked which his favourite goal of the hat trick was:
“The penalty because that’s the first penalty I’ve scored since I became a professional player.”
