'This Man Utd Star Is As Good As Mbappe & Dembele'

'This Manchester United Star Is As Good As Kylian Mbappe & Ousmane Dembele'

By Keegan Kruger - Sep 21, 2017 06:30 PM @KeeganKruger

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.

Mourinho: Why This Man Utd Star Hasn't Played This Season

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."

Mourinho Planning Shock Transfer Bid?

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.

Do you think Rashford should be getting the same recognition as the likes of Mbappe and Dembele? Have your say in the comments section below.

Rashford is good to us who watch football from Coach's Perspective and not as ordinary emotionally laden politicking fan. If he was only lighter, then one could see the headings like:"HAIL THE SAVIOUR OF ENGLAND".."THE WUNDERKIND" "THE PELE WHO WAS BORN IN ENGLAND"

In England players of our colour don't get the tag 'Pele of England'! Rashford is better than Rooney at 19...however, Rooney was overrated. I mentioned the reason.

Phil is fooling himself hes just trying to praise his fellow country man. Mbappe is way ahead of rashford. Hes even ahead of dembele. You can myb compare dembele n rashford. Mbappe is in the same bracket as Gabriel Jesus n Asensio. I see there's a lot of pple who haven't seen mbappe playing, just watch that boy, he's a gem n definitely one future balloon d'or candidate
