Varane sends warning message to Man Utd's attackers ahead Champions League game

Raphael Varane has called for Manchester United‘s forwards to display greater efficiency in front of goal to help improve their disappointing start to the season.

United’s recent 1-0 loss to Crystal Palace marked their fifth defeat in the first nine matches of the season, raising questions about the quality of Erik ten Hag‘s squad despite significant investment.

So far this season, United has only managed to score seven goals in seven league games, with Marcus Rashford contributing just one goal himself.

While Varane didn’t single out any specific attackers, he emphasized the importance of their performance at the elite level to drive the team’s success.

“[The Champions League] is about details and you have to be efficient to win the competition,’ the Frenchman added, ahead of Tuesday night’s clash with Galatasaray.

“In the last moments we need more efficiency.

“It is a low number of occasions we concede goals and we need to create a lot to score. That is the reality of the top level.

“You need to be efficient to win trophies. We have the quality in the squad to win competitions. We have to move forward and improve.”

Marcus Rashford has attracted significant attention, especially due to his struggles in Manchester United’s recent defeat to Crystal Palace.

Despite ranking second for the most shots in the Premier League, behind only Manchester City’s Erling Haaland, Rashford has only managed to get six of his 28 attempts on target.

These statistics highlight a need for greater accuracy and effectiveness in Rashford’s finishing, which could significantly impact Manchester United’s goal-scoring capabilities.
