Pogba: Rashford & Martial Don't Have Cavani's Quality

Manchester United star Paul Pogba has somewhat surprisingly stated that the likes of Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial do not have the same quality as Edinson Cavani.

The Uruguayan striker was on target as the Red Devils came from behind to defeat Fulham on Wednesday, with Pogba netting a superb winner in the second half.

The French midfielder has been full of praise for the 33-year-old since, insisting that he possesses qualities other forwards in the squad do not have.

"Everybody knows that Edi is a top-class striker and there's few strikers like this in the world, and we had the chance to have one," Pogba told MUTV.

"We know the hardest goals are those goals. We have talented players – Anthony Martial, Rashy in front, even Mason (Greenwood), that they can shoot from outside and stuff – but they don't have this, the experience of Edi, and they don't have the same quality of Edi as well.

"So I think we complete each other with the players we have in front and Edi can obviously show his class like he did today.

"Those goals that we needed, at the right time, he's always there at the right time and the right moment to help the team to win."
