McCarthy’s position at Manchester United is that of attacking coach since he works closely with the club’s forwards, but he is also involved in the formation of United’s general attacking framework.

Marcus Rashford is one player who has experienced a significant improvement in his form since McCarthy’s arrival, and England forward has nothing but respect for McCarthy.

The 25-year-old United academy graduate has 35 goal involvements (25 goals and 9 assists) in all competitions this season and continues to thrive.

“I feel like since Benni has come in we’ve worked more as a team going forward, which has led to us creating more chances of scoring goals. He keeps pushing us, he keeps trying to get us to improve,” Rashford told SuperSport TV.

Rashford has had an outstanding 2022-23 season. Many ascribed his increased performance to McCarthy’s influence, despite McCarthy’s efforts to minimise his influence.
