Ferdinand said Rashford can emulate Rooney who similarly added poaching to his repertoire when he joined the club at a young age
Manchester United’s Marcus Rashford can become a “world class” forward if he sharpens his poacher’s instincts in front of goal, former defender Rio Ferdinand has said.
Rashford scored a late winner in United’s 2-1 Champions League group stage victory at Paris Saint Germain Tuesday, repeating his heroics from 2019 when his winner sent Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side into the quarter-finals.
Ferdinand said Rashford, 22, can emulate United’s all-time top scorer Wayne Rooney who similarly added poaching to his repertoire when he joined the club at a young age.
Rashford had his best season with United last year when he scored 22 times in all competition.
He is the club’s joint top scorer this season with four goals so far.
