Marcus Rashford’s tweet perfectly sums up exactly why we should cherish him forever

The Man United youngster made it to his third domestic final after beating Spurs yesterday

Oh Marcus Rashford you hero.

While everyone else was talking about Spurs bottling their chance and whether Mauricio Pochettino would leave, Rashford quietly went into his third domestic final.

And when you include Man United winning the Europa League last season it’s easy to forget just how impressive’s Rashford’s start to life as a footballer is.

England’s future

United and Jose Mourinho deserve a lot of kudos for the way they handled Spurs yesterday.

After going a goal down, Paul Pogba dealt with Mousa Dembele on the touchline before setting up Alexis Sanchez and after that moment Spurs never really had a chance.

Rashford was thrown on with a few minutes left to see out the game and although his first act was to beat Davinson Sanchez then get booked for diving.

However, what he tweeted after the game shows that we should all remember that the United striker is just 20 years old and has already got a more enviable trophy cabinet than most professional footballers.

The youngster already boasts one FA Cup, one League Cup and a European trophy in the Europa League and all England fans should come together and thank Louis Van Gaal for giving him his first chance.

Even Rashford has to remind himself that he has got so much time left to achieve all the things he wants to in the game, and we wouldn’t be surprised whatsoever if he did.

Despite Mourinho’s reputation for not playing youth and Rashford having to watch Romelu Lukaku come in for a big transfer fee, he has still managed to stay around the first team.

Pure perserverance and patience has seen Rashford play more than 40 games for United, albeit coming on as a sub a lot of the time.

Along with Anthony Martial, Jesse Longard and potentially Luke Shaw, all Rashford has to do is remain patient and he could be a hero for club and country.
