Marcus Rashford has won the Sir Matt Busby Player of the Year award for the 2022/23 season.
He has also been named Manchester United’s Players’ Player of the Year.
It comes as no surprise that the 25-year-old has scooped the two prizes, considering his terrific performances throughout the campaign.
It is also a moment of pride for the club as Rashford is the first United Academy product to win the Sir Matt Busby Player of the Year award since Ryan Giggs in 1998.
Marcus Rashford has carried Man United on his shoulders
Rashford has enjoyed his best season in the Red Devils’ jersey, bagging 30 goals and 11 assists across all competitions. He could not have dreamt of a better season.
It would not have been easy for the forward to step up after a catastrophic 2021/22 campaign in which he scored only five goals in 32 appearances.
When Erik ten Hag took charge of Man United, he was adamant that Rashford was a big part of his plans.
Cristiano Ronaldo left United in December and Anthony Martial missed most of the campaign due to injuries. With every challenge comes an opportunity.
The homegrown hero pounced on his chance of being United’s talisman and carried the goalscoring burden for the team.
The next challenge for the United Academy graduate is to continue his hot streak in the upcoming seasons.
Before that, he would like to finish this spectacular campaign in style by helping his side beat Manchester City in the FA Cup final this weekend.
He has just over a year left on his current deal, but the club will do everything possible to extend his stay at Old Trafford.
