Ander Herrera names the Man United star who has 'everything to become one of the club's biggest players in history'

Ander Herrera says Marcus Rashford has 'everything to become of the biggest Manchester United players in history'.

Rashford appears to be turning a corner, having starred for Man United this season - scoring five goals and registering three assists in 10 matches in all competitions.

He's rediscovered his form that saw him become a mainstay in the team following his breakout in 2016, delivering a sensational cameo appearance against Omonia Nicoisa.

Former Man United favourite Herrera has been impressed by Rashford's career resurrection and believes he can become a club legend.

"Marcus makes a big difference when he’s fit and when he’s in a good moment - and he has now the best teacher in the team, with the best example, with Cristiano," 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."

Herrera added: "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."

The 25-year-old has already matched his goal tally from last season as he enjoys a prolific start to the new season.

He's bagged three goals in the Premier League and two goals in the Europa League.
