Marcus Rashford tells Mason Greenwood what he needs to do to be top forward


Marcus Rashford has urged Mason Greenwood to ignore any outside noise and push himself if he wants to be considered a top forward.

The 18-year-old is following in Rashford’s footsteps after progressing through the academy ranks to become a member of Man Utd’s senior squad.

Greenwood has been drip-fed first-team action this season in what has been his breakthrough campaign, but has still chimed in with 12 goals in all competitions.

He no doubt looks a star for the future, and Rashford believes the sky is the limit for the youngster, providing he is willing to put in the hard yards.

“Mason’s got everything to be as good as he wants to be,” Rashford told Bleacher Report. “All the attributes to be a forward at the top level.

Rashford added: “As a forward there’s not much else you can ask for in terms of natural ability.

“Hopefully he continues to work hard. Unbelievable talent.”
