Scholes: Rashford can be a world star

Manchester United striker Marcus Rashford "can be a world star", says former midfielder Paul Scholes.

The teenager has played a key role this season, scoring 10 goals including an extra-time winner in the Europa League quarter-final against Anderlecht.

"Rashford will be a brilliant centre forward, there is no doubt about that," Scholes told BBC Radio 5 live.

"His pace is incredible. He's almost the club's most important player now at the age of 19."

Retired midfielder Scholes, who made over 700 appearances for the Red Devils, compares the youngster’s ability to former Old Trafford forward Cristiano Ronaldo, now with Real Madrid.
