From the ‘Special One’ to the ‘Chosen one’ Man United seem to have it all at the minute.
Fans of the Old Trafford outfit, took social media by storm on Saturday night, after young teenage sensation Marcus Rashford struck in injury time, to give United all three points against brave Hull City.
The 18-year-old – who made his first appearance of the season, off the bench – steered home Wayne Rooney’s cross to spark wild celebrations on the away bench.
Before the match their had been calls from supporters to see more of their young talent, with the paper mill suggesting that United boss Jose Mourinho was considering sending the striker on loan to gain some more first team football.
But in the aftermath of Marcus Rashford’s heroics in hull, those rumours have been firmly quashed by United’s Portuguese boss, with Mourinho confirming that the striker now has a massive role to play this season.
United’s late victory means that they and Chelsea are now the only Premier League sides with a 100% record from three games, with Manchester City – who have two wins from two games – playing West Ham on Sunday.
In the aftermath of the victory against Hull, fans of the Red Devils took to social media to praise their young starlet.
All hail the chosen one!
Too early to compare Rashford to Aguero but if Aguero keeps working hard and scores goals then he can reach Rashford's level.
