Manchester United legend Roy Keane believes Marcus Rashford would do well to emulate his England teammate Raheem Sterling. The pair started in the national side’s 4-0 win over Bulgaria on Sunday but Keane believes the Manchester City star has progressed to a level which his fellow forward should look to learn from:
“We spoke about Rashford, sometimes the best example for any player is one of their team-mates. Rashford can learn so much from Sterling, whether training with him or watching him at close quarters. That’s a great lesson and hopefully he is picking up them tips that we did see in the second half.”
Rashford started the season in good form, scoring a double in the 4-0 win over Chelsea on the opening day. However, since then, his form has dipped and he has been criticised by some supporters.
In contrast, Sterling has been excelling at City, having already scored five goals in four Premier League appearances so far this campaign.
Rashford and Sterling are likely to be selected to start for England once again when Gareth Southgate’s side face Kosovo at Southampton’s St Mary’s Stadium tomorrow evening.
Following the international break, Rashford and his United team play Leicester City at Old Trafford on Saturday afternoon.
