#PLStories – #AxelTuanzebe reveals how he pressured #MarcusRashford to score a goal during the game #MUFC

Axel Tuanzebe

Axel Tuanzebe revealed he was playfully pressuring Marcus Rashford to score against Paris Saint-Germain throughout Tuesday night’s Champions League win in the French capital.

Axel Tuanzebe said: “Yeah, it was good. It was good to get a run out. It’s a difficult game to come back to, but I’m just happy we’ve got the win. We came here to win. We’re in this competition to compete. We showed PSG respect, but ultimately we’re the bigger team and we want to dominate and get the three points. Most definitely, you pay them [Neymar, Mbappe and Angel Di Maria] the respects but, at the end of the day, you focus on your own game and you try and do your best for the team. We came out here to win, got the three points and we’re happy with that.I kept telling him through the game, ‘I want my goal, I want my goal!’ and he delivered, so I’m just happy for him. And he’s delivering week in, week out for the team, and I just want him to keep going and helping the team out.”

Operating on the right side of a back three, Tuanzebe found himself directly up against Kylian Mbappe and acquitted himself extremely well despite having not previously kicked a ball for the first team since last December. Rashford struck in the 87th minute to clinch all three points for United after Anthony Martial’s own-goal had cancelled out Bruno Fernandes’ opener.
