Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford should be given more credit as Phil Neville believes he is the same level as Paris Saint-Germain’s Kylian Mbappe and Barcelona’s Ousmane Dembele.
The England international also scored during their win over Burton Albion 4-1 at Old Trafford on Wednesday.
The United youngster netted twice inside the opening 17 minutes which gives 5 goals for him this season in all competitions.
Former United Neville believes Rashford deserves more credit and should be in the discussion alongside €180million-rated Mbappe and €105m Dembele.
“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 – £100m-£150m 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.”
