Manchester United's matchwinner in Paris, Marcus Rashford, is capable of progressing even further and becoming a truly world class player, according to club legend Rio Ferdinand.

The late strike from the forward against PSG, a powerful drive from the edge of the box, handed his team the perfect start to their Champions League group stage campaign - and glowing praise quickly poured in from admiring pundits.

Ferdinand believes that, with the addition of a 'poacher's element' to his repertoire, Rashford is fully capable of ascending to stardom.

'If he [Rashford] can get that ugly side, this kid can go on to be unbelievable.'

The 22-year-old was typically cool in reenacting heroics at the same ground which saw United miraculously progress to the last-16 of the same competition last March.

Ferdinand could not resist making a comparison between both players during his post-match analysis, and insisted that Rashford's play style while hurtling at defences is notably different.

'When Mbappe gets the ball, I am on the edge of my seat, whereas Marcus will get it and have a look,' he added. 'There is a difference in identifying when to go for goal.'

Owen Hargreaves, another former Old Trafford star, was left irked by those who have criticised Rashford - and agreed with fellow pundit Ferdinand that the striker would continue to improve.
