What age is Rashford he seems ready

He got a slice of luck with the fact that United were so depleted with injuries at the time. He then took his chance and then last season was in and out of the team when United had more experienced players available.

Everyone can bash Koeman as much as they want. But they can't bash him for giving youngsters a chance.

Last season teenagers played over 2,000 minutes combined for us in the premier league. Apart from United (1924) no other team played teenagers for more than 500 minutes combined. On top of that Koeman wasn't afraid to play kids when required (Pennington, Holgate was 20 by October last year).

Just think it's easy look for things to have a go at Koeman for and because some of the experienced players are struggling all of a sudden Koeman needs to play the kids and doesn't give them a chance.

Like I say, bash him for inept tactics, team shape, signings. But to have a go about giving youngsters a chance is a tad unfair. IMO of course
