Jesse Lingard: Rashford won’t get carried away

Manchester United midfielder Jesse Lingard hailed Marcus Rashford’s performance in victory at FA Cup opponents West Ham last night.

It is only the beginning for the 18-year-old according to Lingard, who says his team-mate will simply get better and better.

“Marcus is a chilled guy, just like every other lad here,” he said. “Very chilled and very down to earth, and that’s something we have at the club.

“We always keep our feet on the ground. I think that mindset will have helped him when he first made his United debut.

“He works hard on and off the pitch, and I grew up with him. Well, not directly with him, as he’s been about four or five ages below me, but I’ve always seen him about and seen he has the ability to make it.”
