The Dutchman insists Rashford remains a part of the club’s plans moving forward and says he does not want to lose the England international.
“He’s really important, you have seen from the first day I’m here, I’m really happy with him,” Ten Hag told his pre-match press conference ahead of United’s trip to Brentford.
”I don’t want to lose him, he’s definitely in our plans at Manchester United.”
Rashford has suffered a downturn in form across the last 18 months and scored just five goals last season. He has scored 93 goals in 304 appearances for the Red Devils since making a goalscoring debut as a teenager in 2016.
