Marcus Rashford explained his goal celebration to Rio Ferdinand during the Man Utd legend’s trip to their Carrington training ground.
The Red Devils and Rashford have been in great form recently with Erik ten Hag still in the hunt for four trophies this season.
A 3-0 victory over Leicester City in the Premier League over the weekend has put Man Utd in the title race with Ten Hag’s men now three points behind second-placed Man City and five adrift of leaders Arsenal.
Man Utd forward Rashford is one of the main reasons for their rise up the table with the England international contributing 24 goals and six assists in all competitions this season.
Rashford has been celebrating his goals by pointing his finger at his temple and now Man Utd legend Ferdinand has revealed the meaning of his celebration.
Ferdinand told his Vibe with Five YouTube channel: “Rashford, I found out today by the way, I went to Carrington today to interview Bruno [Fernandes], it was good. I saw [long-serving receptionist] Kath [Phipps], been there 56 years the lady! Ridiculous!
“But the celebration, it’s mentality. Nice, innit. Simple. But it’s just travelled massively. Everyone round the world is doing it now. All the young kids scoring goals, that’s the impact Rashford has had.”
Ferdinand added: “Seeing Marcus just smiling – I’ve said this so many times – just seeing him smile, there’s a different vibe about him.
“He’s enjoying himself, there’s a spring in his step. I had a nice chat, it was nice. Nice vibes in the place.”
Man Utd face Newcastle in the Carabao Cup final this weekend while they are also still participating in the FA Cup and Europa League.
Ferdinand continued: “The vibes at Carrington have changed dramatically. It’s just become more positive, the ambience in the place.
“Everything has changed there, looks different, feels different. The feeling when you walk in there, man… I’ve had very, very negative vibes over the years when I’ve walked through the corridors of the training ground.
“And I walked through there today and it filled me with a little smile. I was on my own walking back through the corridors and I just smiled a little bit.”
“It’s weird to say but I can sense something happening here now. I don’t know what it is, I don’t know where it’s going to get to, but the ambience is very different, there’s a confidence throughout the place.
“And the confidence isn’t from the players alone, it’s the staff. I can sense something with the staff. They’re all more upbeat, happy to be in at work everyday, and that’s all been created and generated by Erik ten Hag and his team.”
