Morgan Schneiderlin backs Marcus Rashford to be a ‘top, top player’ for Manchester United

Morgan Schneiderlin believes Manchester United youngster Marcus Rashford will be a “top, top player” someday.

Rashford has burst onto the scene at Man United this season, scoring five goals in eight games since his debut for the club last month.

The 18-year-old’s latest strike came in the derby against Manchester City on Sunday as United secured a 1-0 win. Schneiderlin backed Rashford to become a quality player.

“It is amazing what’s happened with him since he made his debut,” Schneiderlin said.

“He’s a great talent, it is not just about the goals he is scoring, it’s about all his game. He will make some progress in the future as well and he will be a top, top player.”

Rashford has dealt with the transition from the academy to first team affairs remarkably well and it says a lot about his character that he has been able to take the pressure that has come his way in his stride.

There will be endless speculation over whether Rashford will fade away following the bright start, and no-one really knows what will happen with him, but he has certainly given himself the best possible start at Old Trafford.
