Gerrard praises Rashford: It’s a shame he plays for Manchester United

Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard has heaped praise on Man Utd youngster Marcus Rashford.

The 19-year-old has made a bright start to the new season and has already scored three goals for United. He left quite an impression Gerrard during the 3-0 win over Basel prompting the former midfielder to say that it’s a shame that the youngster plays for United.

“He’s got a huge future ahead of him,” Gerrard said on BT Sport.

“It’s great that he’s English. Not so good that he’s a United player from my point of view.

“He’s got pace, he’s got everything to his game.

“He scores goals and we spoke a few weeks ago about Trent Alexander-Arnold having the courage and the character to step up while there’s big names around to take free-kicks and credit to the kid having that bottle.”
