Gareth Southgate believes Marcus Rashford can be England's Cristiano Ronaldo

Rashford is likely to find himself playing second fiddle to Romelu Lukaku at Manchester United

Rashford is likely to find himself playing second fiddle to Romelu Lukaku at Manchester United

Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford has been told to join a club like Everton by ex-Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher.

Jose Mourinho will be keen to put a turbulent start to the season behind him when Manchester United return to action this weekend.

"It's not my business to interfere with club managers, they have a hard job to do and they have big squads at the top six, huge competition for places, so Jose thinks the world of Marcus", he said.

The Portuguese is considered to be a hindrance in Rashford's development by some, as he has dipped in and out of the starting XI at Old Trafford, struggling to hold down a consistent first-team place.

Rashford will serve the first game of a three-match suspension this weekend following his red card against Burnley before the global break, further restricting his opportunity to build on his part in England's run to the semifinals of the World Cup in Russian Federation, where he made six appearances.

Rashford was one of few bright sparks for Southgate, scoring both England's goals in a 2-1 defeat to Spain and 1-0 victory over Switzerland in the past week.


"The landscape is what it is and I understand the difficulties club managers have". There is huge competition for places at his club so you can understand that.

"For me, it's the biggest club in the world, and I think he's got the potential to be one of the best".

"One of the biggest concerns is playing time for English players - that is shown by a number of the squad who came with us in Russian Federation not getting opportunities", Southgate said in a press conference last month.

Southgate, though, used the example of England captain Harry Kane and Cristiano Ronaldo to show that at just 20, Rashford has plenty of time on his side.

"His confidence will be boosted I'm sure, with two goals against top-quality opposition". "José [Mourinho] thinks the world of Marcus - he's a huge admirer of him - but he has his job to do". They have to try and win matches. They are going to have the League Cup and European football, so there's more opportunity that the squads will get rotated.
