Marcus Rashford has been voted as English Premier League’s player of the month.
The Manchester United forward has put in a series of impressive performances at the club. The Red Devils recorded impressive wins over their former boss Jose Mourinho’s side Tottenham Hotspur and a rare away win at defending champions Manchester City.
In both the matches, Rashford was right in the middle of everything good United did and he capped it off in style by defeating Newcastle 4-1.
Rashford’s brilliant performances were not missed by his boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer who was quick to compare the youngster with an young Cristiano Ronaldo at Manchester United.
“Of course it’s hard to say with certainty that he’s going to be as good as Cristiano, but you can see the similarities more and more in terms of Marcus’ traits on the pitch,” said Solskjaer.
“He can play through the middle, he can play as a number nine, he can cut inside from the left and finish. He can even play on the right, as Cristiano did when he came here. He’s got the same physical stature and more or less all of his attributes are very, very similar. Even their stats are similar, in terms of goals scored after a certain amount of games.”
“You have to remember that, as well as playing with Cristiano, I coached him in my first year as a forwards coach here,” he added.
“Both players are very professional, very dedicated, very in love with football. And you can see that Marcus is getting more of a taste for that now, both with us and with England. He is pushing himself and seeing the results.”
Now it seems to be the start of something special and Manchester United Instagram are raving on Rashford!
