‘Rashford is the best striker in the Premier League’ – Rio

United legend Rio Ferdinand believes Marcus Rashford has been the best striker in the Premier League since his debut back in February.

Rashford has scored 16 goals for United and England with his first coming on his debut against FC Midtjylland in the Europa League.

The United starlet has made a name for himself across the world and it’s no surprise that Rio Ferdinand Thinks so highly of him. The former United centre back had this to say:

“I think Marcus Rashford should be selected for the senior squad next week and be unleashed against Malta.

“Including his hat-trick for the U21s against Norway earlier this month, no English striker has scored more goals since he made his professional debut in February.

“I don’t care how old you are, that record warrants a place in the squad. He has been the best striker in this country since February in terms of output – the statistics don’t lie.”

With Anthony Martial yet to hit form and Wayne Rooney being dropped for the Leicester game, Rashford has a great chance to cement a place in Jose Mourinho’s starting XI on a more regular basis; providing he is afforded the playing time to do so.
