Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has drawn up comparisons between star striker 22-year old Marcus Rashford and 34-year old Cristiano Ronaldo, who is a striker at Juventus.
Rashford broke through into the first team at Manchester United as a teenager, thanks to Louis Van Gaal. Rashford made an instant impact and has not had to look back ever since.
Just like Ronaldo, Rashford is a crowd favourite at Old Trafford. Much like the Portuguese, Rashford is also brilliant from dead ball situations.
“It’s very easy to compare the two of them, yes,” Ole admitted.
“Both with skills, body shape, attitude, attributes – everything. The boy has every chance in the world to become a top, top player. Let’s hope he continues like this.”
However, the United manager has no intentions of setting any goal targets for star player Rashford.
“I don’t want to talk about the amount of goals,” he said.
“As long as he keeps being positive and being direct and thinking about getting in front of the goal and getting chances, he’ll score goals.”
So now we can see why Ole Gunnar is correct to compare Marcus Rashford with the legendary Cristiano Ronaldo.
