The 18 year old’s all round play is probably a bigger reason for optimism and in his all too short cameo for England at Euro 2016, he provided as much excitement as most his teammates had managed for the whole tournament.
The Manchester United youngster is becoming more known worldwide and Catalan newspaper Mundo Deportivo use it on Thursday to poke Jose Mourinho with a stick.
Detailing his rather nice knack of scoring goals on his debut, the newspaper have a suggestion for Mourinho.
Ahead of the Manchester derby, Mundo Deportivo, who aren’t the biggest fans of the Manchester United manager, say Mourinho ‘has in his hands the possibility of making a huge star of Rashford’.
They point out the manager hasn’t got a great record with youth, and explain that Mourinho can back up his claims of feeling Rashford “has everything” by starting him against Manchester City.
Of course, Rashford already has derby glory behind him, all part of Mundo Deportivo saying the footballer has been ‘making history’ over the past year.
