Bruno Fernandes, the captain of Manchester United, has revealed why he decided not to take a penalty during their 3-0 victory over Everton.
Previously, Alejandro Garnacho had already secured the lead with an incredible goal, followed by a late goal from Anthony Martial.
The second goal, which came from the penalty spot, raised some eyebrows after VAR determined that Ashley Young had fouled Martial in the box.
Despite being the usual penalty taker, Fernandes gave the responsibility to Rashford.
Rashford successfully converted the spot-kick, scoring his second goal of the season.
Explaining his decision, Fernandes told Sky Sports: “Because Marcus needed a bit of confidence, he needed his goal.
“He is an excellent penalty taker. I was sure he could score that penalty and Marcus did it perfectly.
“I think obviously strikers and wingers need to score goals, it is part of their game. Marcus was unstoppable and he could take on everybody.”
