Rio Ferdinand is hoping to see Marcus Rashford improve his finishing at Manchester United and continue to develop his game at Old Trafford.

The 20-year-old striker has been going from strength to strength at Old Trafford since breaking into the first team under Louis van Gaal.

Rashford has been in good form for Manchester United so far this season, with the attacker having eight goals and made four assists in all competitions for Jose Mourinho’s men.

Former Manchester United defender Ferdinand is a keen admirer of Rashford, but he does feel that he can still significantly improve his composure in front of goal.

Speaking to BT Sport on Tuesday night, Ferdinand said: “You just hope that the finishing part of his game keeps developing because in every other part of his game he looks so mature.

“He’s electrifying with his movement and you wouldn’t want to play against him because he tests you all over the park.”

Rashford will be hoping to feature for Manchester United when the Red Devils take on Manchester City in the crunch derby clash at Old Trafford on Sunday.

The Red Devils head into the game knowing that a win would leave them five points behind leaders Manchester City heading into the hectic festive period in the Premier League.

Manchester United are aiming to win the Premier League title this season for the first time since their final triumph under Sir Alex Ferguson back in the 2012-13 campaign.
