United legend Scholes insists Rashford can be a “world star” like Neymar

Date Posted,April 21, 2017

Paul Scholes has tipped Marcus Rashford to reach the levels of Barcelona superstar Neymar.

The Manchester United forward has enjoyed an excellent week, scoring key goals in the wins over Chelsea and Anderlecht.

With Zlatan Ibrahimovic suffering a serious knee injury, Rashford is expected to be United’s main striker for the rest of the season.

And Scholes feels the 19-year-old can reach the very top at Old Trafford.

“He will be a brilliant centre-forward, there’s no doubt about that,” he told BBC Radio 5 live.

“My only concern is because he is so quick, and United will possibly have two or three centre-forwards, he might get shoved out wide.

“It’s not a bad thing – you look at Cristiano’s record. People like Neymar, he has got that kind of ability.

“It’s a lot to live up to but he can be a world star.”
