Rashford Will Be Lucky To Still Be Playing At 30-Sam Allardyce

Published

Marcus Rashford will find it “very difficult to get to 30”, claims former England boss Sam Allardyce, with the Manchester United star facing a serious threat of burning out.

At 21, Rashford has already become an established member of the first-team at club level and is also considered one of Gareth Southgate’s most important players on the international stage.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has helped to bring out Rashford’s best over recent weeks, with the forward starring for United in a central striking berth.

More is expected in the seasons to come, but Allardyce believes the demands set to be placed on him may lead to early retirement.

“Probably very difficult to get to 30,” the ex-England and Everton boss told talkSPORT.

“Because of the demands, physically and mentally, the fatigue that he will suffer. He will have three weeks a year off. That’s it.

“He’ll play all over the world because there’s no pre-season anymore, they go straight away across to these tournaments.

“He’ll play for his country in the summer and he’ll get barely three weeks off.

“I think when you look at the wear and tear… by 25, he will have niggles. Even if he doesn’t get any major injuries, the knees and the ankles, the hips, the back will be a little bit of a problem as he goes on.

“They won’t stop him playing but I think later on in life it will bring his career to an end quicker than before.

“But if you look at the Premier League now, I think there’s less players over 30 playing now than ever.”

Rashford started and scored on what was his 150th appearance for United in their 2-1 win over Brighton on Saturday.

He will be hoping to again be selected for the FA Cup clash with Arsenal on Friday, although Romelu Lukaku will also be pushing for a recall having started just once since the Norwegian’s appointment as interim boss.

COVID-19: SANWO-OLU ROLLS OUT ECONOMIC STIMULUS FOR RESIDENTS, TARGETS 200,000 HOUSEHOLDS IN FIRST PHASE

Published

on

Few days after the Lagos State Government issued a stay-at-home directive to residents, in order to curtail the spread of the novel coronavirus, Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu has unveiled economic stimulus package for the indigent and the most vulnerable in the society.

The stimulus, which comes in food packs, to be distributed to every local government in the State is aimed at cushioning the effect of the fourteen days stay-at-home directive.

Speaking after an on-the-spot assessment of one of the State-owned food banks, located inside the premises of the Ministry of Agriculture and Cooperatives in Agege, Sanwo-Olu said the economic stimulus will reduce the burden of the temporary economic downturn on the citizens caused by the outbreak of COVID-19.

The Governor said the food packs, which were put together by the Ministry of Agriculture and Cooperatives will reach the most vulnerable communities and households across Lagos, saying that the indigents who rely on daily wages will be given priority.

He said: ‘‘We are here for an on-the-spot assessment, of our readiness, to see how we can fast track some of our stimulus package for our citizens. We are all aware that this is a trying time for our citizens and since the partial drop in economic activities, our government deemed it necessary to reach out to the vulnerable ones in the society. These people are those that fall below the pyramid, the aged and the physically challenged who need to move from one part of the city to another for them to have a living. We felt that as a government, the least we can do is to identify them and give them these stimulus packages immediately.’’

The Governor stated that the package will touch at least 200,000 thousand households in the first phase, saying the food packs are produced for a size of six people per household and would last for at least fourteen days.

“We have packaged dry food stimulus for about two hundred thousand families in the first instance for a household of husband, wife and about four children. We would be giving bags of rice, bags of beans, garri, bread, dry pepper and we are trying to see if we can add water and some elements of vitamin C. Each ration, we believe is going to be able to last them at least minimum 14 days just so our advocacy around stay at home, stay with your loved ones will be respected.

“This is a catalytic initiative of our administration with the hope that well-meaning corporate organisations and private individuals can step up to complement the efforts of the government’’ Sanwo-Olu said.

The Commissioner of Agriculture, Prince Gbolahan Lawal earlier said the Government would be working with the existing database of the state – using the Lagos State Social register and 4000 community development association register in 377 wards.

He said the economic stimulus is part of Governor Sanwo-Olu’s administration’s initiatives tailored towards ensuring that food security is sustained in Lagos.
