Owen Hargreaves has heaped praise on Marcus Rashford following his sparkling displays for Manchester United in recent weeks.

The 19-year-old has been in brilliant form for the Red Devils in recent weeks and has earned plenty of praise for his performances for Jose Mourinho’s men.

Rashford has scored 11 goals and made three assists in all competitions for Manchester United so far this season and will be hoping to help the Red Devils win the Europa League later this month.

The teenager burst onto the scene at Old Trafford last season under Louis van Gaal and has continued his development under Mourinho at the club.

And Hargreaves has been incredibly impressed by the impact Rashford has had at Manchester United this season.

Speaking to BT Sport, Hargreaves said: “To be where he is at 19, I think it’s remarkable.

“It’s remarkable that the onus is on him now. He’s taking all the free-kicks, all the set pieces. He’s the main man at the moment. He’s where the goals are going to come from.

“I think it should just be about him – he needs help. He shouldn’t have to play every game because I think mentally it’s a lot of pressure on a young player.”
