Morgan Schneiderlin believes that striker Marcus Rashford has the ability to become a star at Manchester United.
The 18-year-old came through the ranks at the club but few would have imagined his astronomical rise to stardom in the matter of a few weeks. The young striker made his debut for the Red Devils only towards the end of February. However, he grabbed headlines almost immediately after scoring twice in the 5-1 victory over FC Midtjylland. This was immediately followed by two goals and an assist in the 3-2 win against Arsenal.
These games quickly catapulted him to stardom and he has never been on the wane since then. Even though there were suggestions that he should be dropped after going without a goal for five matches, manager Louis Van Gaal kept his faith in the player and started him for the crucial Manchester derby last weekend. Rashford returned to scoring ways after a 16 minute goal against their arch rivals. The boy from Manchester was scoring against one of United’s biggest rivals and this has seen him adored by the supporters. Schneiderlin joined United only in the summer but he has already seen enough of Rashford to suggest that he could become the next star at the club.
“It is amazing what’s happened with him since he made his debut. He’s a great talent, it is not just about the goals he is scoring, it’s about all his game. He will make some progress in the future as well and he will be a top, top player. It is a great feeling to win, especially for our fans after the disappointment of the Europa League defeat against Liverpool. We knew it was a massive game for ourselves as well as our fans and the club,” said United midfielder Schneiderlin after the derby win.
