marcus rashford cant stop smiling after first man utd hat trick on day free school meals petition gets 1m signatures scaled

MARVELLOUS Marcus Rashford admits he “can’t stop smiling” as his stunning second-half hat-trick led Manchester United’s 5-0 hammering of RB Leipzig.

On the day the striker’s petition for free school meals reached 1million signatures, he came on in the 63rd minute to strike on 74 and 78 minutes plus two minutes into injury time.

Rashford said: “I think the manager told me when I came on to up the tempo and of course for us it means going forward and there were definitely spaces there.

“We looked like we could score every time we went forward.

“It was  a real team performance and those who started the game did well and those who came on did well.



“We can’t ask for much more than that in terms of attitude and intensity and intent to go and kill a game off.”

And in a tweet celebrating his first United treble, he hailed his petition success and amazing match stats before adding: “Can’t stop smiling, I’ve waited a long time for that. Just wish the fans were in to experience it with me.”

The 22-year-old did well to ignore the linesman’s flag in running on to Bruno Fernandes through ball for his first goal – doubling Mason Greenwood’s opener – as VAR showed his run had begun before the halfway line.

Rashford said: “I thought to be fair I was in my own half so I was a bit confused when the flag went up but all you can do is wait and see and after the ball is in the net and that is it.

“We have to work with VAR. it’s part of the game now and the quicker we get used to it the better.” 

Rashford was briefly denied a hat-trick when Anthony Martial asked to take an 87th minute penalty but at least the Frenchman converted it.

Asked if there had been a chat between the two, Rashford said: “A little bit yeah but I feel confident with Anthony taking them as well so there was no problem.”

The romp made it two wins from two in Champions League Group H.

Rashford, who is making headlines off the pitch for his work in feeding poverty hit children, is doing the business on it too against sides that excelled in the Champions League last season.

He scored the late winner last week against finalists PSG and now this against the Bundesliga leaders and a side who reached the last four.

Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said: “Marcus took his chances incredibly well.

 “Marcus has shown he can keep focusing on what’s important on and off the pitch.

 “He came on did well made an impact and that is what you want from the subs but that is only possible though because the others had laid the groundwork.

“What a shift they put in. Leipzig make you work hard, the high press, the counter press, everything, the intensity and we had to dig in and work hard for each other so spaces open up when you are winning.”

Mason Greenwood got the opener in the 21st minute on his return to the side after a superb pass from Paul Pogba.

Solskjaer said: “He normally does that with his first touch. He is so efficient in front of goal. He is a great finisher and I was very pleased with the timing of his run. Great pass from Paul.

New signing Alex Telles missed last night’s game after testing positive for Covid-19

Solskjaer said: “Telles has tested positive for coronavirus, he’s been out for a few days, no symptoms, he’ll be fine, back soon.”

owen hargreaves claims marcus rashford will captain manchester united one day

Owen Hargreaves believes Marcus Rashford will captain Manchester United one day after showing leadership qualities during their Europa League clash with RB Leipzig. 

Rashford scored three goals inside 20 minutes as Man United beat last year’s Champions League semi-finalists Leipzig 5-0. 

However, when given the opportunity to secure his hat-trick when the Red Devils were awarded a penalty with the scoreline 3-0, Rashford allowed Anthony Martial to take the shot.

Not only did the decision allow Martial score his first goal of the season, Rashford went on to score his third of the game in the 92nd minute. 

Speaking of Rashford’s decision to let Martial take the penalty, Hargreaves said: ‘I love that – he’s looking out for his teammates. Marcus knows he’s gonna get his numbers, I love that. 

‘That’s being a great teammate. That’s why he’s gonna be the captain because he thinks about everyone else.’ 

Rio Ferdinand, on the other hand, felt that Rashford should have been ruthless and followed the likes of Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo by taking the penalty himself. 

Ferdinand said: ‘Messi and Ronaldo ain’t giving a pen away!’ but did later admit that Rashford is ‘somebody who’s intent on improving himself and becoming a better player. ‘

Trevor Sinclair previously back Rashford to become United’s captain for the same reason’s as Hargreaves. He believes the striker ‘leads by example’ and ‘has that kind of spirit and drive that can rub off on other players’. 

He told TalkSport: ‘I don’t often look at strikers and think ‘oh yeah, captain material.

‘You look at players like Alan Shearer, he was captain of Newcastle. I know he was more vocal and more experienced but I feel Rashford has that kind of spirit and drive to want to succeed and that can rub off on players.

‘Maybe it’ll be one of those things where Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will give him the armband when the captain is injured.

‘He leads by example with his actions. I mentioned quite a few months ago that I feel he’s someone that you’d look at and say he’s got the potential to be captain material at Manchester United.

‘He’s been doing a lot of work to feed children in Manchester over the COVID-19 period, he’s been given an award by the High Sheriff of Greater Manchester. He’s been feeding 2.8million kids per week which is unbelievable. That just shows what kind of character he is.’

Rashford has been demonstrating the power of sport as leverage through his work in feeding underprivileged children. 

The England forward has been campaigning for the government to provide free lunches amid fears of the financial ramifications of the coronavirus pandemic. 

Such work has seen him be awarded an honorary doctorate from the University of Manchester, an MBE and the Pride of Britain Award.

MARVELLOUS MARCUS RASHFORD hit a stunning second-half hat-trick as Manchester United hammered RB Leipzig 5-0.

But the much-loved superstar was prepared to risk claiming the match ball as he selflessly handed Anthony Martial the responsibility of taking a penalty in the dying seconds before eventually claiming his third.

The striker came on in the 63rd minute and struck in the 74th and 78th minute before eventually sealing his treble in injury time.

Rashford, 22, had just moments earlier picked up the ball when United were awarded a spot-kick, but he gave it to his team-mate, who rifled home from the spot to get off the mark for the campaign.

He said: “I think the manager told me when I came on to up the tempo and of course for us it means going forward and there was definitely space there.



“We looked like we could score every time we went forward. It was a real team performance and those who started the game did well and those who came on did well.

“We can’t ask for much more than that in terms of attitude and intensity and intent to go and kill a game off.”

Rashford did well to ignore the linesman’s flag in running on to Bruno Fernandes through ball for his opener and VAR proved his run had started in his own half.

Rashford said: “I thought to be fair I was in my own half so I was a bit confused when the flag went up but all you can do is wait and see and after the ball is in the net and that is it.

“We have to work with VAR. it’s part of the game now and the quicker we get used to it the better.”
