Roy Keane is one of the most iconic figures in Manchester United’s history. The Irishman was a key part of the club’s success in the late 1990s and early 2000s, and his no-nonsense approach to the game has been an inspiration to many.
However, it appears that Keane was not always so sure about the potential of one of United’s current stars, Marcus Rashford. In a recent interview, Keane revealed that he had doubts about Rashford’s ability to become the main man at Old Trafford.
Keane said: “I remember when Marcus first came into the team, I was a bit sceptical. I thought he was a bit lightweight and I wasn’t sure if he had the personality to be the main man at United.”
However, Keane was quick to admit that he was wrong about Rashford, and that the young Englishman has proved him wrong. He said: “But he’s proved me wrong. He’s got a great attitude and he’s a great player. He’s a great example to the younger players at the club.”
Rashford has been a key part of United’s success in recent years, and his goals have been crucial in helping the club to win the FA Cup, the Europa League and the League Cup. He has also been a regular in the England team, and his performances have been a major factor in the team’s success in recent years.
Keane’s comments are a testament to Rashford’s character and determination, and it is clear that the United legend has been impressed by the young forward’s development. It is also a reminder that even the most experienced and knowledgeable of footballers can be wrong about a player’s potential.
Rashford has certainly proved Keane wrong, and he looks set to be a key part of United’s future for many years to come.
