Rio Ferdinand thinks Chelsea’s Tammy Abraham could teach Manchester United striker Marcus Rashford a thing or two about “positioning”.
Rashford has bagged 10 goals and provided four assists in the Premier League this term, while Abraham has similar statistics with 11 goals scored and three assists.
The England international team-mates have different styles of play but Ferdinand reckons Rashford needs to work on the “positioning” element of his game.
“He’s [Tammy Abraham] going to score a tremendous amount of goals because what he does is he wants to be in between the sticks, he wants to be in the centre of the goals to score goals,” Ferdinand told BT Sport.
“What I love about Tammy is his first instinct, his first thought is “get me in there, get me in there to hurt the opposition, get me in there to score goals.”
“It’s the positioning, some people will tell [Marcus] Rashford to get in that position and he’ll score five, six, seven, eight goals a season more.
“This kid here, that’s all he wants to do, that’s an element of his game that doesn’t need working on. He’s scored goals at every level and he’s brought it into the first team.”
