Sir Alex Ferguson has sung the praises of Marcus Rashford, who has scored five goals in eight games since making his debut a few weeks ago.

Within those goals were two against Arsenal, in our 3-2 win, and our only goal in the derby day win against Manchester City.

Ferguson reckons Rashford is a great example of what separates United from the other clubs.

You have to give him credit, he’s given nine young players their debut. I think the future is good. Rashford is an example of what I think is Manchester United. They are the one club in England who will always identify a Rashford and give a young kid a chance. There is no better club in England at giving young kids a chance. Rashford is a sensation and one of the best in years.
