Paris Saint-Germain superstar Kylian Mbappe says Man Utd midfielder Paul Pogba has told him how “special” Marcus Rashford is.
Tuesday’s Champions League group opener at the Parc des Princes sees the Red Devils return to the scene of one of their greatest comebacks.
United’s last-gasp 3-1 win in March 2019 saw Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side become the first team in the competition’s history to overcome a two-goal home loss and progress from a knockout tie.
Rashford scored an injury-time penalty that night as Man Utd triumphed against the odds and Mbappe has been made aware of the England international’s ability by France team-mate Pogba.
“He’s one of the most dangerous forward players in England,” said Mbappe
“Paul Pogba has spoken about how special he is and he doesn’t talk about players in such a way often. When you take a penalty in that situation, how much practice you have put on the training ground doesn’t matter. It’s about confidence and he’s a player who plays with so much confidence.”
Mbappe has also backed striker Anthony Martial to have “another big season” at Man Utd.
“He’s a player I have a great understanding with,” Mbappe told the Daily Mirror.
“Playing with somebody as talented as Anthony makes your job easier.
“I’m sure he’ll have another big season with Manchester United and I look forward to playing with him for the national team again.
“He’s a very good friend but also a player that I connect very well with.”
