Louis van Gaal: Why Marcus Rashford was unbelievable against FC Midtjylland


Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal was full of praise for his players after an impressive 5-1 win at home against FC Midtjylland.

The Red Devils struggled in the early stages of the game as they allowed Pione Sisto to increase the advantage for the visitors.

But van Gaal's men showed heart and determination as they recovered to register a much-needed home win with young Marcus Rashford scoring two on his debut for the club.

"It was a great performance and I think the fans will have enjoyed our attacking football," van Gaal said after the game.

"I believe they crossed the middle line for the first time when they scored. Normally you get a decline in confidence, but it was not like that as we scored, but missed a penalty – unbelievable!

"Still we kept going and going so I must give great compliment to my players because it is not so easy to do that.

"It is unbelievable, how the spirit of the team is. I hope that the fans shall have enjoyed this game as there has been a lot of spectacular football - there were a lot of attacking situations.

"It is unbelievable too when you see this in advance of the match when we lose Anthony Martial. At the end, 5-1 with many youngsters in the team is fantastic.

"[Marcus Rashford?] He was unbelievable.

"I think he ran too much in the first half, across the whole pitch, and I think a striker has to play more in the width of the goal. I told him at half-time that he would score if he did that, and he scored twice, so it's fantastic!

"It's not only great for him, but also the team because we needed this victory. We are still fighting in three competitions and not many clubs can say that."
