With the England international enjoying an impressive run in front of goal, fans have associated it with the South African’s impact

Fans have credited Marcus Rashford’s top goal-scoring form to Bafana Bafana legend Benni McCarthy.

The forward has been in phenomenal form and scored in his eighth consecutive home game on Tuesday evening against Charlton in the Carabao Cup.

This resurgence contradicts how Rashford performed under previous manager Ralf Rangnick, when he scored four goals in 25 league appearances.

McCarthy, who was incorporated into Erik ten Hag’s technical team this season, is directly working with Rashford and other strikers. Consequently, the former Orlando Pirates forward has been credited with the English international's impressive run.

Some see McCarthy’s hand in Rashford’s resurgence, while others claim that he is not responsible for it.

    Rashford has been talented

    Rashford scored 50 goals under [Ole Gunnar] Solskjaer. So, not necessary to credit all his talent to current managers or players. He always had it in him. - @CiliaSegram

    Benni-like trait

    His goals were spectacular dribbles and youthful exuberance. Now, he looks more and more like a cold-hearted killer.

    He is very deadly without doing too much, a very Benni-like trait. Credit to the striker for clearly working on himself and allowing the coaches to work on him as well. - @linchpin22
