EVERYONE saw Kylian Mbappe in the World Cup.
He was the player we were all talking about and when Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo retire we will see Mbappe as the next king of football.

But when I watch Marcus Rashford, I also see a real talent.
When Rashford emerged he seemed to score in the first minutes of all his games — his Premier League debut, his first game in Europe, then when he pulled on an England shirt.
Mbappe showed at Monaco he was special. PSG paid an awful lot of money, but he is now a World Cup winner, the best young player in the world.

Mbappe knows what to do at the right moment. I’ve never seen anybody with his speed. He is already the fastest player in football.
And he’s not just fast. He picks the right option, controls the ball, dribbles like nobody else and knows how to score. That is special.
Rashford is a fantastic player already. He has speed, skill, movement, heading ability and knows how to get into the box and finish.
Rashford is not just a No 9, either. He can drop in, or play wide, using his pace and intelligence.
