Suara.com – Marcus Rashford admits he has only one regret so far in his professional football career. As a Manchester United player, he regrets never being coached by Sir Alex Ferguson.
Ferguson is the legendary Manchester United coach who led the Red Devils for approximately 26 years from 1986 to 2013.
Under Sir Alex Ferguson, Manchester United enjoyed a golden period by winning 13 Premier League titles and two Champions League titles.
After Ferguson retired in 2013, Marcus Rashford only made his debut in the Manchester United squad in 2015, under coach Louis van Gaal.
“For me [mendengar dari Ferguson] was an amazing experience and I think for me it is probably the only regret I have ever had in my career, never having had the opportunity to play under Sir Alex, “said Rashford. Goal, Friday (15/1/2021).
Even though the dream is almost impossible to come true, Rashford still has the opportunity to get a word from the former Scottish tactician via informal channels, namely by telephone.
“This is something that probably will never happen now, but talking on the phone with him and just chatting for 10 or 15 minutes with him was incredible,” explained Rashford.
“I’m happy he is aware of the situation and he also wants to help, so that’s brilliant. He has always, from the start really, supported me in what I was doing.” he added.
Rashford explained that Sir Alex Ferguson was one of the people who supported his vision to help children in Great Britain get adequate food intake during the Covid-19 pandemic.

“Maybe when other people in the sport tell me not to do it and just focus on football, he says if I believe in that, and I believe it’s the right thing to do, then he’s behind him,” explained Rashford.
Ferguson sent his own video tribute to Rashford as part of the FWA ceremony, expressing his pride in seeing the young striker earning praise both on the pitch and through his work to alleviate youth food poverty.
“I congratulate Marcus on his achievements and presentation tonight,” said Sir Alex.
“I have known him since I was a kid aged seven, and seeing him progress through the ranks of Manchester United into a truly extraordinary person,” he added.
