Video: Man United wonderkid compared to Barcelona superstar by BBC pundit after magic tekkers

Posted by

Speaking on BBC Five Live, pundit Pat Nevin has paid Manchester United’s Marcus Rashford a remarkable compliment.

Discussing one of the wonderkid’s recent performances, and focusing on one specific moment of skill executed by the young England hopeful, former Chelsea and Everton winger Nevin suggested that he’d only ever seen one other player perform the same tekkers…Brazil and Barcelona forward Neymar!

Certainly, there are ostensible differences between the two men.


Both burst onto the scene at a young age, and found themselves playing starring roles for major sides.

Similarly the duo can operate as a central striker, but are arguably more effective when starting in a wide role and cutting in to great effect.
