Manchester United legend Ryan Giggs has opined that Marcus Rashford has the ability and talent to make it to the top in his footballing career. He revealed this after being impressed with the young forward’s contribution to the side this season.
The young English forward has featured regularly as a starter for Manchester United this season and already has 5 goals to his name in 6 games.
This impact has made Giggs, who also made it through the ranks at United as a teenager to predict a great future ahead for Rashford, pointing out the importance of his attitude off the pitch
“For a United fan like me it’s exciting to see,” Giggs told reporters at the Premier Futsal tournament is Dubai. “He’s a real Manchester United player, he gets fans on their feet. If he gets the ball there’s always an expectation.
“When I’m watching him at Old Trafford you want him to have the ball because you think something can happen. It’s not always going to come off but he tries things and that is
“The history of the club demands that players from Manchester come through and the fans love that.
“He is a brilliant professional and a brilliant person. That, and having the ability he does, is why I’ll always think he’ll go right to the top.”
The goals scored by the young forward as well as new signing Romelu Lukaku have ensured that Jose Mourinho’s men remain genuine title contenders as they are currently separated from the league leaders by just goal difference.
Manchester United have not won the Premier League since the retirement of Sir Alex Ferguson. However, Giggs believes that they stand a decent chance this season
“We have got off to a very good start, scoring lots of goals – there was a big spotlight on Lukaku at the start of the season and he’s done really well.
“We look really strong – strong going forward and strong defensively too. Against Southampton, it was a solid performance to keep a clean sheet and that’s what you need to win Premier Leagues.
“As well as exciting four or five nils, you need to be good defensively. This United team can do that.”
