But it’s easy to say when I was 27, 28 or 29 because Marcus is 21 and still learning.“But for me, the most important thing is to settle him down in front of goal. I’ve seen him rush a few finishes like ‘I really need to get a shot off early’.“Sometimes you just pass it past the keeper, because if there’s a defender you just pass it past him or you go past him. That goal will never move. I’m really looking forward to having the amount of talent that I’m working with now up front.The 45-year-old was a prolific scorer himself during his own playing days with 127 goals in 364 appearances for United, which includes the famous match-winner against Bayern Munich in the 1999 Champions League final.last_img
