Silky Rashford ability reminds Man United legend of Weah
In the 61st minute of today’s Premier League clash between Manchester United and Burnley, Marcus Rashford reminded Red Devils legend Gary Neville of Ballon d’Or winner George Weah.
A long pass was played over the top that cleared the lightning-fast Rashford to run behind the Burnley backline. He controlled the ball expertly before smoothly puffing James Tarkowski with nutmegs.
The center-back who scored for the Clarets today almost tripped over the trick, but this was only the start of the Rashford show …
Rashford then took on Tarkovsky, carrying the ball forward before hitting his old English teammate for the second time with a perfectly executed ‘Elastico’ skill.
The Man United striker drilled a low pass over the goal, which was cut out by Ben Mee.
Red Devils great and Sky Sports expert Gary Neville was massively impressed by the moment and told the broadcaster during live commentary that he remembered the great George Weah.
