Glenn Hoddle thinks Mason Greenwood “will push Marcus Rashford out” of the Man Utd side because of his superior finishing.
Greenwood has been in sensational form over the last couple of matches, providing an assist and a goal in the Red Devils’ 3-0 win over Brighton before scoring a brace as Man Utd thrashed Bournemouth 5-2 on Saturday.
Rashford has started 26 Premier League matches this season for Man Utd, compared to Greenwood’s seven but Hoddle reckons that could soon reverse.
“I think he’s a wonderful player now and he’s only going to get better and better,” Hoddle told Premier League Productions.
“I’m really impressed with the two feet. I love to see players play with two feet. He’s got a right foot and he’s got a left foot. I think Phil [Neville] is right about playing him right in a wide berth. Will he end up down the middle? Maybe, maybe not.
“I think he will push Marcus Rashford out of the team. There’s a quote. I think he will end up being a far better clinical finisher and in the end I think you’re going to have to put this lad in first ahead of anyone else.
“Their front three at the moment is working really well for them, [But] When you look at Martial [and Rashford] they’re all wingers really; they want to play wide.
“So if they did go and get a centre forward, I think he could play round a real main focal centre forward and have him playing round there. Wow! He could be anything with the two feet.”
