Sir Alex Ferguson privately raves about Marcus Rashford to former Manchester United players, according to reports.

ESPN is reporting that the former Manchester United boss is a huge admirer of the 20-year-old forward, who has earned a reputation as one of the Premier League’s most exciting young attacking talents in recent seasons.

The same story says that Ferguson “enthuses” over Rashford’s talent when he speaks to players who have since left Manchester United.

Rashford has been in top form for Manchester United so far this season and has scored three goals and made four assists in the Premier League.

The striker has established himself as a regular in both the Manchester United and England teams in recents seasons as he continues to develop at Old Trafford.

Rashford will be expecting to feature for Manchester United when the Red Devils return to Premier League action on Saturday with a trip to Brighton and Hove Albion.

Mourinho’s men head into that game in second place in the Premier League table and eight points behind leaders Manchester City.

The Red Devils will aim to close the gap to their bitter local rivals when they host Pep Guardiola’s men at Old Trafford on 10 December.
