Manchester United: Fans react to Louis Saha’s verdict on Marcus Rashford and Kylian Mbappe

Manchester United: Fans react to Louis Saha’s verdict on Marcus Rashford and Kylian Mbappe - Manchester United

Former Manchester United striker Louis Saha insists that Marcus Rashford is on the same level as Paris Saint-Germain star Kylian Mbappe.

Speaking exclusively to Compare.bet, as per @utdreport, Saha claimed that Rashford and Mbappe are in the same bracket in terms of technical ability.

The ex-Red Devil striker went on to discuss Paul Pogba’s best position, Anthony Martial’s international future and Man United’s search for a new striker in a wide-ranging interview with the betting site.

He told football writer Daniel Bennett: “They’re both very fast players, they have the technical ability to get out of situations where they’re surrounded by two or three defenders.

“In terms of positions, Marcus and Kylian are quite similar. They like to play out wide but have also played up top. Kylian’s strength is that he is very direct, all the time.

“He doesn’t think twice. When he makes runs, you have to give him the ball, he’s so quick. That kind of directness is something we’ve also seen from Rashford.”

Rashford is United’s top scorer this season as he has scored 14 goals in 23 games in the Premier League so far, despite succumbing to a back injury in January. Similarly, Mbappe is PSG’s leading goalscorer, as he  bagged 18 goals in 20 appearances in Ligue 1 in 2019/20.

Although the Frenchman has earned a higher WhoScored rating than his English counterpart, it is worth pointing out the talent the 21-year-old often has alongside him, including the likes of Neymar and Mauro Icardi.

As expected, Saha’s “insulting” verdict prompted funny responses from the Red Devils fan base, as many leapt to the defence of their star striker. One fan cheekily asked the pundit to “stop disrespecting Rashford.”

Scroll through some of the glowing reactions so far from the Old Trafford faithful…
