Ex-Premier League Star Names The Best Player Between Marcus Rashford and Kylian Mbappe

Ex-Crystal Palace owner Simon Jordan thinks “it’s silly” to suggest Marcus Rashford is a “world-class” talent despite his “ridiculous form”.

Speaking after United’s 2-2 draw with Barcelona in the Europa League, Jordan told talkSPORT: “Rashford is in a ridiculous vein of form.

“What I’ve always pushed back against is the characterization that he is a world-class player and he’s in an elite position.

“He’s a very good player, you don’t get to play for Manchester United – whatever guise of Manchester United is in front of you – unless you are a very good player.

“He’s in a rich vein of form, a remarkable state of mind, even the goal he scored the other day which was disallowed was so sharp – bang – and it’s in the back of the net.

“You can see in a player that their confidence is brimming, but confidence and moments in time are one thing. A body of work and a constant level of containment puts you above everybody else.

“That’s the usage of the word ‘world-class’ – we throw it around like confetti. There are very few world-class players, you can name them on two hands.

“At this moment in time, while Marcus Rashford’s form is extraordinarily good, I think it’s a bit silly to call him world-class. At this moment he’s on top of his game, that’s a fair enough assessment.”

Rashford has grabbed 22 goals and eight assists in his 35 outings across all competitions this season.
