Scholes likens Rashford to Manchester United Great

Paul Scholes has lauded the finishing ability of Marcus Rashford on Wednesday night after the English striker came off the bench to score a brilliant hat-trick against RB Leipzig.

Scholes likened Rashford to his former Manchester United teammate Ruud Van Nistelrooy.

Rashford came on for opening goalscorer Mason Greenwood in the 63rd minute, Rashford netted twice in four minutes with two composed finishes before sealing his hattrick in stoppage-time at Old Trafford.

Rashford also scored the match-winner in last week’s victory against Paris Saint-Germain and after his first United hat-trick, ex-United midfielder Scholes was full of praise for the 22-year-old.

‘His finishing has been questioned in the past, but tonight you’re looking at 25 goals from him if he keeps that attitude.

‘That was like [Ruud] van Nistelrooy, you see him going through and you know he’s going to smash the ball into the corner.’

Antonio Martial scored the other goal as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer men made it two wins in two in the Champions League.
