'Marcus Rashford Can Reach Kylian Mbappe Level And Win Ballon d'Or'

'Marcus Rashford Can Reach Kylian Mbappe Level And Win Ballon d'Or'

Matteo Darmian believes Marcus Rashford can reach Kylian Mbappe's superstar level and win the prestigious Ballon d'Or.

The former Manchester United player spoke glowingly about Rashford who broke into the first team under Louis van Gaal in 2015.

The forward burst onto the scene as a teenage sensation and the Italian defender believes he can reach the level of France World Cup winner Mbappe.

"I still remember Marcus Rashford's first session with the senior squad like it was yesterday," he told The Guardian. "I immediately thought: 'wow, this is an incredible player.'

"He did so many impressive things for a player of his age and the way he improved in every detail really impressed me."

Rashford has since become a regular member of the United squad and Darmian reckons the England ace can bag the coveted Ballon d'Or if he continues to work the way he does.

"If he continues to work the way he has done so far he can be a Ballon d'Or winner," he added. "I'm convinced of this. He impressed me the most of all the players at United and he's very young and can still improve. For me he can reach the level of Kylian Mbappé and compete for the Ballon d'Or for years to come."

The 22-year-old is enjoying his most prolific campaign for United since making his debut back in 2015.

He scored 19 goals in all competitions before the coronavirus outbreak put a halt to football in England.

Darmian, meanwhile, plies his trade for Italian side Parma. He's in his first season following a summer switch in 2019.
