The fastest player in Man United’s squad is actually not Marcus Rashford anymore, as per those within the club.
United legend Bryan Robson spoke about this after the 3-1 win over Crystal Palace, saying: “When I was speaking with Darren Fletcher, he said he’s [Elanga] probably the quickest at the club.”
Fletcher, of course, is often part of the training sessions of the club and has insider knowledge over how the players are performing.
Rashford was widely predicted as the fastest in the squad because of his incredible burst of pace, but it looks like he might be ousted by the hard-working Elanga.
Both players are still fighting for a place in Erik ten Hag’s starting XI, but Marcus has the edge so far with two goals in the three pre-season-friendly games.
