In-Depth GQ Interview Shows That Marcus Rashford Is Cooler Than All Of Us Combined
Chances are, you’re somewhat familiar with the Marcus Rashford story. It’s well known that he’s a local lad, having joined the Manchester United academy system at the age of seven.
His astronomical rise at the club is also well documented. He made his first team debut for United at the age of 18 while the side was stalling under the leadership of Louis van Gaal. However, in the space of a few days, a star was born.
Rashford scored a brace against Midtjylland in the Europa League on his debut, and then the attacker scored two more against Arsenal in the Premier League only three days later. That same season, he would score the winner in the Manchester Derby and play a vital role in capturing the FA Cup.
Despite his tender age, Rashford immediately thrilled with his combination of frightening pace, devastating technical ability and ice-cool demeanor.
Over the course of the following two seasons, Rashford established himself as a regular under Jose Mourinho while also becoming a constant part of the England squad, including six appearances at the 2018 FIFA World Cup.
Since Ole Gunnar Solskjær has taken over at United, Rashford’s game has turned devastating. Since Solskjær’s first match in charge on Dec. 22, Rashford has scored six goals and provided one assist in 12 EPL games. He also scored the winning goal from the spot in United's unbelievable comeback against PSG.
We’re witnessing the maturation of a thrilling talent with each passing week, and after watching this British GQ interview with the forward, it’s easy to see why he’s destined for the top.
Rashford remains extremely humble, passionate about football and dedicated to returning Manchester United to the pinnacle of the European game.
