'This Manchester United Star Is As Good As Kylian Mbappe & Ousmane Dembele'
A certain Manchester United starlet is just as good as Paris Saint-Germain's Kylian Mbappe and FC Barcelona's Ousmane Dembele, according to a former Red Devils defender.
Former United player Phil Neville believes England international Marcus Rashford deserves to be praised just as much as the two young Frenchmen.
"Everybody praises Ousmane Dembele and Kylian Mbappe, but nobody talks about Rashford in this country," Neville told Sky Sports.
"Because he's English we just say 'he plays on the left wing, he's OK'. He is up there with Dembele and Mbappe, who also play on either wing.
"People say you have to play Rashford as a centre forward, but you can play him anywhere because he is good enough.
"Rashford is in the same bracket as those two – £100-£150 million players – he is every bit as good as those two and can be in the future because he is improving every season.
"He broke in under Louis van Gaal and set the world on fire, in his second season under Jose Mourinho everyone thought he wouldn't play, but he did in all the big games. Now he is adding goals to his game, and he can be absolutely world class."
The 19-year-old striker netted twice inside the opening 17 minutes against Burton Albion in the League Cup on Wednesday night to take his tally for the season to five goals in all competitions.
