Van Gaal: "I want to take profit of Rashford's momentum."

  • Man Utd manager says Rashford is currently undroppable.

  • Rashford has scored 7 in 12 games.

Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal insists he won't be dropping Marcus Rashford from his starting line-up, after the teenager scored the winner against Aston Villa.

Rashford's first half strike saw the Red Devils seal a 1-0 victory on Saturday afternoon at Old Trafford, and Van Gaal believes it's key for the 18-year-old, who has scored 7 in 12 games, to remain in the starting XI.

Speaking to the press following the match, the Dutchman said as reported: “Yes I wanted to change him. I had doubted for a long time. He is also young and he has played the last how many [12] matches but, yeah, at the end I don’t want to do that.

"I want to take profit of his momentum, and he was very positive. I thought I can change him before the end and the last 15 minutes is always very important for players. So I changed him for that.”
