Jamie Carragher has claimed Marcus Rashford is ‘not quite good enough’ for Manchester United, suggesting the England forward would be a better fit for a Tottenham or Arsenal level club.

Rashford was one of several players that endured a miserable season at Old Trafford, scoring just five goals in 37 outings (Transfermarkt) after recovering from a problematic shoulder injury. 

He was often overlooked for a starting spot by interim manager Ralf Rangnick for the second half of the campaign, which has in turn left his future up in the air (Marca).

The 24-year-old was also a notable absentee from Gareth Southgate’s latest England squad for next month’s Nations League matches against Hungary, Germany and Italy. 

And Rashford has now come under heavy criticism from former Liverpool defender Carragher, who believes he is not at United’s level and feels he should be playing at a club like Spurs or Arsenal instead.

Carragher told The Overlap: “He’s just not quite good enough for Manchester United, Marcus Rashford – he’s Tottenham or Arsenal [level]. 

“He’s not going to win you the league. Be a squad player, he’s not quite good enough to be in the first XI to win United trophies, he’s just a level below that.”

Rashford, despite being just 24, has been around for such a long time but he and the whole United side really struggled this season. 

Right now, he wouldn’t even get into the Tottenham team given he is so out of form. If he was to recover some of that, then he would actually be a good option for the club, but that is not guaranteed.
