Ex-Manchester United star Rio Ferdinand believes Marcus Rashford is on track to emerge as one of the world’s best footballers, but needs to catch up to his contemporaries.
The 19-year-old has five goals in all competitions this season, cementing a starting spot at Manchester United in the process.
“You have got Dembele who has gone to Barcelona and Mbappe who has gone to PSG,” Ferdinand told The Mirror. “Would you say Rashford is of the same ilk as them?
“I think potentially he is as good as those guys, but they have done it in the Champions League, while he is yet to prove that.
“He has to keep proving himself, and there are so many hurdles you have to get over. These young players, we are too quick to say, ‘He can be this or that’.
