What did Casemiro say about Marcus Rashford?

The England international has scored in three consecutive games since the season resumed after the 2022 World Cup, helping the Red Devils progress in the League Cup and move to fourth place in the PL. Marcus Rashford is the club’s top scorer so far this season with 11 goals from 22 appearances, and has rebounded from a poor 2021-22 campaign to emerge as a key player for Ten Hag’s side. Brazilian defensive midfielder Casemiro, who joined Man Utd from Real Madrid last August, has praised Marcus’ dedication and even claimed he could be in the world’s top five if he maintains his recent form.

The five-time Champions League winner said he would be very honest with him. According to Casemiro, he was really surprised with the English player. In his mind, especially knowing the player off the field, he can tell them that if Marcus is doing well, he can be in the top five players in the world.

He says Marcus Rashford has an incredible way of hitting the ball, he has power, he’s fast, he plays very smart. Rashford was one of the players that really surprised him. Of course, when they play in another league, they already know the player, but when they are in the same club every day.

The defensive midfielder of the Red Devils added that what a spectacular player. He loves to play with it so much. Rashford gives them a lot of energy. Casemiro is happy to play with him and he is confident that if Marcus Rashford stays like that, with the conditions he has, he could easily be a top five player because he is exceptional.
