Rashford said:

"I think he has done a good job. It can be tough getting a full group of new coaches. Everyone's settled quickly. It's good that the forwards can get a coach that focuses on us a group. Benni will tell you himself his aspirations are much bigger than what we've done so far!

McCarthy's statistical impact at United

Manchester United's resurgence in the 2022/23 season has proven thus far to not have been a false dawn.

After sleepwalking through a disastrous and embarrassing previous campaign, the Red Devils look like their old selves. This has seen them clinch the Carabao Cup under new manager, Erik ten Hag, with the real possibility they could win either or all of the remaining competitions they are still involved in.

Sports Brief has reported in detail how the team's forwards coach, Benni McCarthy has been a revelation behind the scenes in helping United become a potent attacking force.
