Manchester United manager, Erik ten Hag, has compared Marcus Rashford to Paris Saint-Germain’s Kylian Mbappe and insists “there is almost no better player in the world” than the England forward.
Rashford has already equalled his goal tally from the last campaign in 11 fewer appearances.
The 25-year-old also netted three goals for his country at the 2022 World Cup.
“I believe when Marcus’ positioning is on the back of the defending line, there is almost no better player in the world.
“There is Mbappe in this moment, a type like him, but when he [Rashford] is getting in that position, he’s great and you see he’s really improved also out of possession,” Ten Hag told the club’s official website.
Rashford has made 322 appearances for the Red Devils since his breakthrough 2015/2016 season, contributing 101 goals and 60 assists.
