Defoe: ‘Unbelievable’ Rashford can go as far as he wants to

Bournemouth striker Jermain Defoe has heaped praise on England team-mate Marcus Rashford, saying that “the sky is the limit” for the Manchester United striker.

The 19-year-old has impressed the veteran striker in England training and Defoe believes that it is only a matter of time before Rashford starts scoring 20 goals a season.

“Rashford came up to me [during England training] and spoke to me about finishing,” Defoe told ‘The Daily Mail’.

“I said to him before the last game [against Slovakia], ‘Are you going to score for me today?’ He said, ‘I’m going to score because we’ve done finishing in training.’

“What’s Rashford like to work with? He’s unbelievable. The sky is the limit for him. Before games he is calm and relaxed – then goes out and produces. It’s only a matter of time before he starts scoring 20, 25 goals a season.”

Rashford has enjoyed a good start to the new season, with five goals in ten games in all competitions for Manchester United and Defoe is backing the youngster to match Harry Kane’s goalscoring exploits in the future.

“I think so, once he has that first season when he’s scored 20 goals,” he said. “You’ve already seen how he’s scored a few goals and looks confident with his finishing now.”

Manchester United and England fans will certainly be hoping that Defoe is right.
