72 hours ago, no
one had heard of the name Marcus Rashford.

His two goals
against FC Midtjylland brought surprise for the United fans, but since
scoring another two goals against Arsenal last night, fans are losing their
minds.

In the last year,
Manchester United has spent over $200 million in hope of finding their next star.
Manager Louis van Gaal has struggled to find a replacement striker since Robin
van Persie left in 2015. Little did they know that their new star has been
right in front of them this whole time.

The Dutch manager
is back in the fans good books, after their 3-2 victory over 3rd place Arsenal
this morning.

 For the first time
in months, fans were singing  “Louis van Gaal’s red army”. Rashford’s
first time finishing has been a notable factor in his first two games for the
club, scoring from the ground and in the air against the Gunners.
