Johannesburg, Feb 29 (ANI): Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal has lavished praise on Marcus Rashford, describing the young striker as a ‘special talent’ for scoring a stunning brace to lead his side to an emphatic 3-2 win over Arsenal in their Premier League clash.
18-year-old Rashford, who also scored a double on his first ever United start in the Europa League against Danish opponents Midtjylland on Thursday, continued his rich vein of form by causing trouble for the Arsenal defence at Old Trafford on Sunday.
The Dutchman manager said that Rashford had played well in both matches and pointed out that having a small squad had helped him give youngsters a chance to prove their talents, Sport24 reported.
The win has also eased pressure on Van Gaal, who came under severe criticism after United’s repeated poor performances and after the club’s early exit from the Champions League. (ANI)
