Former Manchester United striker Any Cole has given some words of advice to Marcus Rashford.
He has been massively impressed by the Englishman’s fearless performances and the way Rashford has been able to adapt to the big stage.
The youngster quickly burst onto the scene at Old Trafford last season and has continued his spectacular rise to prominence.
Speaking about Rashford, Cole claims he should enjoy it while he’s still young.
“Enjoy it, man. That’s what he’s doing. He’s got in the team and it looks like he’s really enjoying it,” he said.
“As a kid, he’s under no pressure so he should go and enjoy his football and he’s doing that. He scored the goal at Hull and also a hat-trick in the England Under-21s recently.
“The boy is enjoying his football. If I was his age, I’d want to do the same thing as well. Enjoy it. He’s really not under any pressure so he can go and enjoy football and that’s what he is doing. With that pace, he’s got speed and movement and is always going to cause problems.
“He proved that last season with his goal against Manchester City in the derby. With his pace, he’s an asset starting or coming off the bench. Opponents are going to be worried about him because he can change a game.”
Rashford has continued to knock down all expectations of himself since his senior debut in February against FC Midtjylland in the Europa League.
He played a vital role under Louis van Gaal, but now has the chance from to learn from one of the best strikers in the world at Old Trafford.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s arrival will help take the goal-scoring pressure off his shoulders and allow him to focus on his development as a forward.
