Marcus Rashford is a “fantastic player” that Ander Herrera thinks will become a club legend at Man Utd.

Spain international, Herrera has been with Manchester United for five years, from 2014 to 2019. The 2015-2016 season marked the first time Rashford played for Manchester United. He had a team-mate in Herrera during this time.

Manchester United's Rashford consistently performed well for the team before the 2022/23 season. However, he had a poor season last term.
Erik ten Hag's ongoing guidance has given the 25-year-old a renewed sense of purpose.

Rashford has five goals and three assists in ten appearances across all competitions this term.

Herrera believes the England international has the potential to become one of the biggest United players in history.

He told ESPN: “So, of course [he can be a key player], but sometimes we are not fair with some players. We are not fair with Marcus or – I could give you more examples – with Vinicius [Junior] or with these kind of players.

“You cannot compare them with [Lionel] Messi and Cristiano because it’s like if the Spanish midfielders, we are compared with Xavi [Hernandez] and [Andres] Iniesta. We are going to lose [that comparison], of course.

“But you have to judge them individually. Marcus can be a fantastic player for Manchester United. He is, in fact, he has done some amazing things at the club.

“You cannot ask him to do what Cristiano has done during his career because that wouldn’t be fair.

“Marcus has everything to become one of the biggest Manchester United players in history. He is back at his best, he is scoring and helping the team and as a United fan I’m happy.”

Herrera also appeared to make fun of Liverpool's 30-year Premier League title drought, claiming that Manchester United "wouldn't take 30 years" to get back to be a Premier League title victor: “I follow all the games and I’m still in contact with some players. I want them to win every single game and I’m optimistic,” Herrera continued .

“Even in the bad moments, I remain optimistic because of the fans and how big the club is. They’ve had a few years without trophies but things take time.

“Liverpool were a long time without trophies and now they are back and doing great. I’m sure United will do the same and it won’t take 30 years, I’m sure.”
