Manchester - Matteo Darmian has backed Manchester United
team-mate Marcus Rashford to become one of the world's top forwards after
seeing him score in Sunday's 2-0 win at home to Premier League leaders Chelsea.
Rashford opened the scoring at Old Trafford after being
played in by man-of-the-match Ander Herrera, who scored United's second goal as
manager Jose Mourinho enjoyed a victory over his former club.
It was Rashford's ninth goal of a season that has seen the
19-year-old find life tough after a superb breakthrough campaign last term.
"I think Marcus is a great player," Italy
full-back Darmian said. "He is still very, very young and I think he is
very important for us.
"With his quality, he can be one of the top players,
one of the most important players, in the world.
"I think he is very good in every part of the game, he
has a very good shot, movement, speed."
He added: "Sometimes for a striker, it is normal there
is a not as good period (scoring goals) but I hope he continues like
this....because it helps the team to reach their objective."
