Arsenal legend-turned-pundit Ian Wright feels that Marcus Rashford has it in him to win the Premier League and Champions League titles with Manchester United. The former Gunners star spoke highly of the forward, who he believes has the ‘drive and vision’ to achieve success in terms of silverware.
Rashford has made a quick transition since his debut against Midtjylland in the Europa League last February, and he is now a regular with both United and the England national side. Speaking on ITV, Wright has backed the 19-year-old’s ambition of winning the big prize with United whilst also dreaming big to lift the World Cup with the Three Lions.
“He’s driven. What he said there, Premier League, Champions League and World Cup. Some people might laugh and scoff at that but when you look at him and look at his dedication and drive, you wouldn’t put that past him. People will say ‘yeah, he’s not going to do it with England’ but if everybody can start having that same drive and vision, anything could happen. It’s great to see,” he told ITV h/t The Express.
The teenager has started the season as a regular on the left side of the attack, but Wright would love to see him feature in the centre-forward position where his pace and movement could prove menacing for opposition defenders, he added: “I would love to see him have a berth right up the centre. His pace, his movement, he’s got I think some of the best movement in the players we’ve got.”
Rashford has managed just a single goal in his four outings for Manchester United this term. Last night, he provided a sublime long-range assist for Harry Kane, who bagged the final goal in England’s 4-0 triumph over Malta in a World Cup qualifier.
