Marcus Rashford Can Be As Good As Cristiano Ronaldo

Marcus Rashford Can Be As Good As Cristiano Ronaldo

Rashford has been in terrific form of late and his goals were decisive in United's wins against Tottenham and Manchester City.

Marcus Rashford is making it "easy" to draw comparisons with Cristiano Ronaldo, according to Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

"I don't want to talk about the amount of goals", Solskjaer added.

He has equaled his best return in the top flight and looks set to weave his magic. However, it is crisis time at the Wanda Metropolitano, with Atleti lying seventh in the league with just one win the last six games, and their star summer signing João Felix failing to adapt to the demands of the Spanish League.

Solskjaer backed Rashford to emulate five-time Ballon d'Or victor Ronaldo, who has bagged three Premier League titles and the Champions League with United before leaving for Santiago Bernabeu in 2009.

Trufant, who played college football for Washington, had 17 tackles and seven pass distractions to go with his four interceptions. There were two in particular that the defensive players and coaches would have perhaps liked to have had back - both touchdowns.

Ronaldo, who now plies his trade at Juventus, had joined Real Madrid in 2009 after leaving Old Trafford.

The Athletic understands Solskjaer has prioritised buying two central midfielders and a striker in January.

"They are always going to get opportunities if they show a willingness to learn, the attitude that we expect from a Manchester United player, the skills and of course the performances". The boy has every chance in the world to become a top, top player. "Lets hope he continues like this".

A lot of hope is pinned on the English worldwide to be the next big thing for United. However, the team is still fifth at the table since they have not been able to sustain their form in the Premier League.

United have already qualified for the knockout stages of the Europa League after winning three of their opening five matches.
