Marcus Rashford: ‘I don’t even think he’s a Premier League footballer’, angry Manchester United fan tells talkSPORT
Marcus Rashford may be regarded by many as one of the most talented young players in the world, but one Manchester United supporter certainly doesn’t hold the striker in such high regard!
The 21-year-old, who has found the net on just three occasions in his last 14 games across all competitions, had a poor game by his standards as United lost 2-0 to rivals Man City in the derby on Wednesday night.
That was remarkably their seventh defeat in just nine games, and Ricky, an avid United fan, made his feelings clear on the England striker when he phoned in to talkSPORT during Thursday’s Drive show.
“I watch him every week and I don’t rate him,” he said.
“I’m not just saying that because of the stats, I’ve looked at them and have a vested interest.

“I don’t even think he’s a Premier League footballer. If he was at Burnley he wouldn’t get in their attack ahead of [Chris] Wood and Ashley Barnes.
“He’d walk in their team because of his name, but two months down the line their fans would be scratching their heads and thinking what does he do?!”
United, who are three points off the top four with three games remaining, entertain Chelsea on Sunday as they look to end their rotten run of form.
