Federico Macheda was one of the young stars widely touted to go on to become one of the top Red Devils’ football star.
The player not too long ago waned Marcus Rashford to be careful and handle the spotlight well, following his rising profile and name chanting all over the media. Well, as the days go by, Marcus Rashford keeps proving he is no Federico Macheda.
The 18-year old England international made his breakthrough debut against Midtjylland in the Europa League in February with nobody practically knowing anything about him. He is proving to be arguably one of the top products from the Manchester United Academy in years. He adds to the increasing English promising teenagers that include Dele Alli, John Stones, Jack Grealish and even Ruben Loftus-Cheek.
The young star has enjoyed the limelight for the past three months and has consistently managed to put off critics with his decent performance scoring eight goals in all competitions for club and country. After Anthony Martial got injured, he was picked to be the replacement few minutes to the game, yet he managed to pull off two fine second half strikes against Midtjylland.
Rashdford started his early football career to the famous junior football academy, Fletcher Moss Rangers. He joined in 2003 and just four years later, just like Danny Welbeck, the club noticed him and owned him. Worthy to note that Manchester City were also interested in the player and even kept tabs on him but Rene Meulensteen coaxed him to committing for The Red Devils. Last season’s effrorts paid off and he was called to join the provisional team squad by Manager Roy Hodgson. Even in the recently released final 23-man squad, he was given the chance to play for England at the Euro. Everyone awaits to see his exploits at the tournament, despite the competition he has for action, and in the coming season.
