Marcus Rashford and Jesse Lingard swap shirts as Patrice Evra tells Manchester United star he’s ‘really proud’ of him after win against Nottingham Forest

    Manchester United legend Patrice Evra has displayed his pride for Marcus Rashford after he scored yet another goal for the club.

    The 25-year-old netted in the 3-0 win against Nottingham Forest, and reunited with former teammate Jesse Lingard after the match.

    Rashford has arguably been United’s best player this season, with his goal tally now sitting at ten for the season in all competitions.

    After a difficult previous campaign he has come leaps and bounds, with former defender Evra having nothing but praise for him.

    “You know Marcus, I think you’re talking a lot about mindset,” he told the forward on Amazon Prime.

    “What I see, and we talked like years ago, I see you smiling, I see you happy. Sometimes people don’t understand we can have problems off the pitch, but I think you’ve solved that.

    “We never discussed about your quality. Me, I don’t care about you scoring like 20 or 30 goals, I just want you to be happy and that’s what I see.

    “That’s why I’m really proud of you, just keep doing what you’re doing because that’s exactly what I feel about you.”

    Rashford caught up with Forest man Lingard after the match, having previously played over 100 times together for the Red Devils.

    The latter left the club in the summer following the expiration of his contract, signing for the the newly promoted side soon after.

    No love has been lost between the two, who swapped shirts with each other once the full-time whistle was blown at Old Trafford.

    Posting a picture of the two of them on Twitter, Rashford said: “More than just a friend, Good to see you bro.”

    United secured a comfortable victory at home, with Rashford netting his fifth in the Premier League this season.

    His contract at the club was extended until 2024, with doubts over his future now being dismissed.

    Should he maintain his recent form, then Rashford could prove to be a key asset for United throughout the rest of the season.
