Gary Neville heaps praise on Manchester United striker Marcus Rashford

Manchester United legend-turned-pundit Gary Neville has heaped praise on the performances of Marcus Rashford and believes the Englishman would be the player to transform the club’s fortunes in the future. Rashford had been in-and-out of the first-team under the guidance of Jose Mourinho earlier in the summer but the Portuguese’s dismissal has meant that he has regularly led the line ahead Romelu Lukaku.

Speaking to Sky Sports, Neville highlighted that the United graduate has enormous potential within himself and he could set the example for the club’s success in years to come, he quipped: “The spring in the counter-attack is there and Rashford playing up front is fantastic – I love him to bits. He’s played nearly 150 games at the age of 21 and his potential is enormous. It’s actually now stepping up beyond the potential to where he will be a top-class player. People will talk about Romelu Lukaku and how is he getting back in the team – don’t worry about that, worry about the kid that’s playing that’s going to devastate teams.”

Frank Lampard urges Manchester United players to stand up for Jose Mourinho

Derby County manager Frank Lampard has admitted that he is pleased about Jose Mourinho guiding Manchester United to a much-needed triumph over Newcastle United and he is hopeful that the players can produce a similar performance on a weekly basis. The Portuguese tactician had come under fire after United went winless for four matches on the bounce but they came back in style with a dramatic 3-2 comeback triumph after being 2-0 down at one stage.

Speaking in a news conference, Lampard was personally content with Mourinho ending United’s lean patch and believes the players must stand up for the head coach in the forthcoming games, he said: “For Jose Mourinho, being a manager myself now, I know how tough it is when things aren’t quite going right. (The result against Newcastle) was a massive win, which I was personally very happy with for him, and now it’s down to the players. The players have to perform at the level they did in the second half against Newcastle every week.”

MAN UNITED TO ADD MAJOR PLAYER IN JANUARY?

There are links to major players and it seems Old Trafford would sanction a deal for an addition in the winter window. Despite the huge spendings in recent years, United would likely break the bank for another top talent, according to reports.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic is expected to return and boost the squad, even as Paul Pogba and others return. The second half of the season is expected to be more fortunate to Jose Mourinho and his boys. However, reports are rife in England that Saul Niguez could join United in their search for a league title.
