Marcus Rashford’s attacking qualities will make him an “unstoppable” force in football, according to Manchester United team-mate Ander Herrera.

Rashford has been in superb form Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s stewardship, scoring six goals in his last 10 appearances in all competitions.

The 21-year-old was rewarded with the Premier League Player of the Month prize for January and is set to extend his stay with the Red Devils.

And Herrera who has observed Rashford’s development is confident the striker is up for great things.

“He’s different,” Herrera told ESPN. “We know at that moment there are some fantastic wingers in modern football: [Ousmane] Dembele, we have also [Raheem] Sterling who is a fantastic player, Anthony Martial, Eden Hazard… but I think Marcus is different.

“Marcus can shoot, Marcus can do one-against-one but he has also the quality to combine and to not lose the ball for the team.

“I couldn’t say one player that reminds me of Marcus Rashford…I think he is already a top, top, top player but I think he will even improve with time in [his] decision-making and he will be unstoppable.”

Another player that has improved significantly is World Cup winner Paul Pogba currently enjoying his game under the Norwegian.

Herrera fondly remembers what he won with United

The Spanish midfielder is set to leave the Red Devils at the end of the season, and he happily remembers what he has won with them.

“I think he is special and we have to make him feel free,” the Spaniard said as cited on FourFourTwo.

“When he feels free, he shows his best. I always tell him that if he plays simple in our half, even in midfield, after [that] he can get his magic out and he can win games for us.

“That’s why he is playing at his best at the moment. I think we have to let him be free by defending his back sometimes. I think Nemanja knows that, I think I know that, and as soon as we receive the ball, as soon as we win the ball back, we can play it to him.”
