Gareth Southgate on Man United star Marcus Rashford’s best position

Gareth Southgate says he is unsure whether Marcus Rashford is suited to play as a central striker in the England and Manchester United first-teams.
Rashford’s best position has been a source of debate throughout the Premier League season so far after Ole Gunnar Solskjaer opted to use the England international in such a role.
Manchester United have a shortage of centre-forwards after the Red Devils opted to sell Belgian striker Romelu Lukaku to Inter Milan in the summer transfer window.
Alexis Sanchez also completed a loan move to the Serie A club to leave Solskjaer with Rashford, Anthony Martial and Mason Greenwood to use in a central striker role.
Rashford started as Manchester United’s focal attacking point in a 1-1 draw with Southampton in their last Premier League fixture before the international break. However, the 21-year-old produced an underwhelming performance as his finishing proved erratic.
But England manager Southgate believes that Rashford’s best work usually occurs out wide rather than in central positions.

“But also, a little bit, that although we?ve for a long time almost wanted Marcus to be that option as a nine, I?m still not certain that that is where he is happiest and where he does his best work.
“A lot of his development at United was as a ?wide raider? and I think he isn?t as strong as H...
