Rashford voted February's Player of the Month

Friday 03 March 2023 12:00

Manchester United hero Marcus Rashford has won a third consecutive Player-of-the-Month award after maintaining his top form in February.

It's fair to say last month was a memorable one after the Reds overcame Barcelona across two legs in the Europa League, took 10 points from a possible 12 in the Premier League, and lifted the Carabao Cup.

Many United players could have been in the frame to win February's award, but Rashford edged out competition from Casemiro and Fred to retain the accolade he won in both December and January.

Marcus scored seven goals in as many appearances for the Reds across February, collecting three Man-of-the-Match awards along the way.

His performance away at the Nou Camp stands out in particular, when our no.10 inspired the Reds to a thrilling 2-2 draw.

Marcus took the game by the scruff off the neck to draw Erik ten Hag’s side level with an unerring finish in the second half, before he skipped past Raphinha and drove in a dangerous cross that deflected off defender Jules Kounde and into the back of the net for our second.

Rashford won our individual star-man award for this match, as well as in our away win at Leeds – in which he scored a bullet header – and the 2-0 home victory over Leicester City where he grabbed a brace.

The 25-year-old capped off another scintillating month by scoring our second goal in the 2-0 Carabao Cup final win over Newcastle at Wembley, as the Reds ended a six-year wait for silverware.

That strike took Rashford’s tally for the season to 25 so far, and he will no doubt be looking to add to that total in the months still to come.

Rashford’s legacy continues to grow


Marcus added a League Cup medal to his trophy cabinet on Sunday, as the 25-year-old continues to thrive at United.

Following our fan poll, Marcus emerged with 47 per cent of the vote, with Casemiro gaining 42 and Fred also on double figures with 12.

Both Brazilians were also impressive across February, but Rashford’s impact and goals edged them out to win our Player-of-the-Month award for February – his third in succession.

Congratulations on yet another achievement, Marcus!
