Ibra gives Rashford his blessing
Zlatan Ibrahimovic is certain his young team mate Marcus Rashford has a bright future in store, and told the club's TV channel on Sunday that one day Rashford will “take over everything”.
Rashford, 18, was one of the revelations of last season, scoring eight goals in 18 first team appearances and earning himself a place in England's Euro 2016 squad.
Ibra's arrival at Old Trafford over the summer has cost Rashford a starting place, but he made his presence felt coming off the bench in Saturday's 2-1 reverse to Manchester City. Ibra feels sure that the teenager’s future couldn’t be brighter.
All the time in the world
“First of all, he's 18, he's still young. He has a lot of time. I think the way you have to approach a player like that, where everyone is talking about the talent and what he's able to do and what kind of potential he has, is to remember he still has a lot of time,”, the Swede told United’s television channel MUTV.
“It's not like he needs to take over the world today. The club knows that, the coach knows that and the team knows that. We know his quality and what he's able to do. What the world is seeing now, we already know because we see it every day. There is no need to rush to push him and put a lot of pressure on him because that can have the opposite effect. Time by time, he will take over everything. It's about having patience”, he concluded.
