Opinion: Rashford’s Decision To Take The Penalty Kick In The Presence Of Fernandes Was Disrespectful

In the FA Cup match that took place on Friday night between Manchester United and Everton, Manchester United emerged victorious. Since the beginning of the season, Frank Lampard's team has continued their bad performance, and if this poor performance continues, there is a good risk that Frank Lampard will be fired from his position as manager.

Antony, a forward from Brazil, gave Manchester United the lead early in the first half. Goals from Rashford and an own goal were enough for the Red Devils to secure the victory. Marcus Rashford was once again the center of attention as a result of his outstanding performance during the game.

In addition to being the one who scored an own goal, Rashford was also the one who assisted on Antony's goal. The game saw two goals scored by Rashford, both of which were made possible by his successful conversion of a penalty kick. Rashford has scored a total of thirteen goals throughout all competitions so far this season, which is a significant increase from the five goals he scored in all competitions during the previous season.

The consensus among Manchester United's coaching staff and players is that Bruno Fernandes is the team's top player. However, given that Casemiro and Erikson are both playing in the middle of the field, it is no longer accurate to refer to him as the greatest player on the team. On the other hand, one may argue that he is the best penalty taker on the team.

During the game against Everton, Manchester United were given a penalty kick, and Rashford was the one who took it. This resulted in many of the spectators being taken aback by this decision. Rashford has turned in some impressive performances for Manchester United in the recent games; but, his move to play the penalty kick while Fernandes was present was disrespectful.

It would have been respectful for Rashford to let Fernandes take the penalty kick instead of taking it himself. Do you think it was disrespectful for Rashford to play the penalty when he was given it? Leave your comments down below.
