Rashford Matches Ronaldo’s Mark For Manchester United: “Benni McCarthy Fried The Boy.”
Needless to say, Benni McCarthy’s contribution to Rashford’s record has received high appreciation from South African fans.
As he scored in Manchester United’s 3-0 victory over Leicester City on Sunday, Marcus Rashford tied Cristiano Ronaldo’s 21-22 goal-scoring record for the club.
Inspired by Benni McCarthy, Rashford has done a fantastic job of stepping into Ronaldo’s shoes this season and has now scored 24 goals, matching what CR7 did in the previous campaign.
African fans have praised Rashford for his impressive goal total and, of course, have credited Benni McCarthy in large part for his accomplishments.
After being hired as a specialist coach for Manchester United’s forwards, McCarthy has watched Rashford undergo a stunning change.
There is no doubt that his work is appreciated.
@ZhyBaby tweeted, “Huge ups to Benni McCarthy too.” “Excellent coach for strikers.”
@Kwenaldo is seeking additional clarification, what is he saying to Rashford?
He wrote, “I wonder what Benni is saying to Rashford.” That kid just keeps scoring, man.
The England international has put up an incredible performance this season, scoring 24 goals and dishing out eight assists.
Don’t like United, Back Benni
Even non-United supporters are becoming converts as a result of what Benni is accomplishing in the North West.
Mpho Kenny Mabotseng penned, “Learn and admire what this African great is achieving against our favorite clubs.” “I dislike United, but I’m a fan of Benni.”
United’s Best Signing
Forget Casemiro, Christian Eriksen, or Lisandro Martinez; for some United supporters, the best signing made by the Red Devils under Erik ten Hag is beyond question.
Benni has excelled this season, according to Frank Lucas. Our best signing by far.
I concur, @Plug king_.
Using a picture of Bafana Bafana’s all-time leading scorer, he added, “When you arrived to Man United you made things happen.”
@sam12bo continued, “Benni is our finest signing this season. “He’s frying that boy up.”
After 24 games, United now has 49 points, five fewer than league leaders Arsenal.
Several supporters believe that Benni should be given credit for United’s improvement as well as Rashford’s performance.
Benni is the driving force behind this revival, said @LGRASL with assurance.
South African fans in attendance
Several supporters at Old Trafford on Sunday observed the iconic flag of the Rainbow Nation flying amid the crowd.
Given that Quinton Fortune hasn’t been included on the club’s roster in a while, it can only be a homage to one individual, right?
Jody Philander penned, “Sam by country’s flag among the crowd.” Benni gets a “big up.”
