Harry Maguire names Man Utd star Rashford as most talented player he’s ever played with and tips him to have huge future – The Sun

HARRY MAGUIRE rates Marcus Rashford the greatest talent he has ever played with – and a future leader destined for an “exceptional career”.

That’s some tribute, given that Manchester United skipper Maguire plays alongside Rashford at club level with Paul Pogba and Bruno Fernandes, plus for England with Harry Kane, Raheem Sterling and Gareth Southgate‘s exciting new starlets.

Rashford, 22, had amassed 14 goals in 22 Premier League games in his hottest season so far – until a double stress fracture in January.

And for the Three Lions he is one-third of an attack that is arguably as good as any trio in international football.

Maguire, though, believes this is all just the start for Rashford, whose role in the community also impresses him, including fundraising to tackle the coronavirus pandemic.

The £85million ex-Leicester centre-back, 27, told United’s official podcast: “On the pitch, he’s amazed me. He’s the most talented player I’ve ever played with.

I can’t speak highly enough of him.. I don’t want to put too much pressure on him but I think he’s going to be a wonderful player

“I think as a club, you should have a captain and rely on him, but you need to spread the onus of the leadership in the group.

“He’s always wanting to make himself available. I think you can see around the place, on and off the field as well, he’s excellent with his charity work, which is great to see.

“I’ve always spoken so highly of Marcus when I have been with him in the England squad. I can’t speak highly enough of him.

“I don’t want to put too much pressure on him but I think he’s going to be a wonderful player for Manchester United, as he is now.”

Maguire’s verdict rivals that of Matteo Darmian, who last week suggested his former United team-mate Rashford will join the world elite.

Italy full-back Darmian, 30, who left Old Trafford for Parma last summer, told The Guardian: “For me he can reach the level of Kylian Mbappe and compete for the Ballon d’Or for years to come.”
