'Man Utd Star Developing Quicker Than Ronaldo'

England manager Gareth Southgate reckons a certain Manchester United star is developing faster than Cristiano Ronaldo did when he was growing up.

'Man Utd Star Should Leave Old Trafford'

Three Lions striker Marcus Rashford seems to have hit some form in the past week, finding the back of the net against Spain and Switzerland and taking his international goals tally to five.

Some feel the 20-year-old, who has struggled into the starting XI at Old Trafford, is starting to show a different side to his game, and Southgate has now hailed his development.

"He is (a special talent)," the England manager said, as quoted by FourFourTwo.

"We have to remember that I don't think Harry, at that age, had hardly played anywhere near the matches for Spurs, really.

"Even if some of those other top players who have broken into the team, some of the step-overs and things Ronaldo was doing at that age, but he wasn't converting them into the number of goals, so we have got to give him time to develop.

"He (Rashford) has still played a lot of football, although maybe not the continuous starts, and I'm really pleased for him that he leaves England full of confidence. He's got huge competition for places at his club, so you can understand (his frustration)."
