Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag has likened Marcus Rashford to Paris Saint-Germain striker Kylian Mbappe and said "there is almost no better player in the world" than the England forward.

Rashford has enjoyed a much-improved season for United, already equaling his goal tally from last season in 11 fewer appearances while also scoring three goals for England at the World Cup.

"From the first moment, I recognised huge potential," Ten Hag told the club's official website. "And now to get out the potential, I believe when Marcus' positioning is on the back of the defending line, there is almost no better player in the world.

"There is Mbappe in this moment, a type like him, but when he [Rashford] is getting in that position, he's great and you see he's really improved also out of possession."
