It feels as though Manchester United are back…
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer certainly has the Red Devils playing the way they should, and we’re watching some seriously good football at this moment in time.
Without question, our best performer has been Marcus Rashford. The 21-year-old has been leading the line wonderfully well and it’s all down to the manager giving him the opportunity to start as the main striker.
That’s obviously attracting attention across the globe, even his own teammates are mightily impressed. Ander Herrera has today heaped the praise on United’s #10, with the Basque-born midfielder going as far as saying that Rashford could one day become ‘unstoppable’.
Herrera told ESPN: ‘He’s different. We know at the moment there are some fantastic wingers in modern football: Ousmane Dembele, Raheem Sterling, Anthony Martial, Eden Hazard – but Marcus is different.
‘Marcus can shoot, he can play one-against-one, but he also has the quality to combine and not lose the ball for the team.’
‘I couldn’t name another player that reminds me of Marcus Rashford. I think he’s already a top, top, top player, but I think he will improve.
‘With time, [improvements] in his decision making, and he will be unstoppable.’
We’ve seen some absurdly good homegrown talents down the years and Rashford is right up there with the best of them. He has an outrageous turn of pace, he’s deceivingly strong, while also being pretty useful with his back to goal.
It’s scary to think that he’s barely 21, too. Rashford has perhaps a decade of his best football in front of him and if he continues to improve at this rapid rate, we’ll have a player who’s amongst the best on the planet in the not too distant future.
I said it earlier today and I don’t think it’s a stretch to suggest that over the last six weeks or so, Rashford has been the best striker in the country.
