PSG superstar Mbappe hails ‘special’ Manchester United star that Pogba raves about
Paul Pogba is a big fan of Manchester United star Marcus Rashford’s “special” talents, Kylian Mbappe has revealed.
Since breaking through as a teenager a few seasons ago, Rashford has developed into a deadly attacker for this Manchester United side and is constantly the best player on the pitch for the club.
World Cup-winning Frenchman Pogba has been aware of the potential in a Red Devils forward for some time, having graduated through the same Old Trafford academy system, and he been impressed by what he has seen from the England international, with a talented 22-year-old becoming a role model for millions with his efforts on and off the field.
And Mbappe, who is about to face Rashford in the Champions League as Paris Saint-Germain prepare to play host to United, is another member of the Red Devils winger’s ever-growing fan club.
Mbappe told reporters ahead of a continental clash with Rashford: “He’s one of the most dangerous forward players in England.
“Paul Pogba has spoken about how special he is and he doesn’t talk about players in such a way often.
“When you take a penalty in that situation, how much practice you have put on the training ground doesn’t matter. It’s about confidence and he’s a player who plays with so much confidence.”
It is high praise for Rashford to see two of the very best players in the game be such a fan of his talents, he has earned them over the past few seasons and fully deserves all the plaudits he gets on and off the field.
