Wayne Rooney Believes Marcus Rashford Must Win Trophies to Reach Mbappé’s Level


Former Manchester United player Wayne Rooney has expressed his belief that Marcus Rashford needs to start winning trophies soon in order to be mentioned in the same conversation as Erling Haaland and Kylian Mbappé. Rooney’s comments come after Rashford officially extended his contract with Manchester United, despite interest from clubs like Paris Saint-Germain.

Rooney, speaking to reporters, praised Rashford as an incredible talent and expressed his delight over the player’s contract extension. However, he emphasized that the next five years will be crucial for Rashford’s legacy. Rooney believes that in order to reach the level of Mbappé and Haaland, Rashford needs to be the driving force behind Manchester United’s success in winning trophies and league titles.

While Rashford has already showcased his ability to score goals, Rooney asserts that achieving success at the highest level is what will truly elevate him among the world’s best players. Mbappé and Haaland have established themselves as world-class talents who make significant contributions to their teams, and Rooney sees the potential for Rashford to reach similar heights.

The pressure and expectations on Rashford will continue to rise as Manchester United looks to reclaim their former glory. The upcoming season will be crucial for the 25-year-old forward as he plays a pivotal role in the club’s pursuit of titles. With the backing of club legends like Rooney, Rashford will be expected to deliver consistently and help Manchester United regain their winning mentality.

Rashford’s decision to commit his future to Manchester United indicates his belief in the club’s potential and his desire to be a key figure in their resurgence. As one of the brightest talents in English football, Rashford’s performances will be closely monitored by fans, pundits, and teammates alike.

Rooney’s words serve as a reminder to Rashford of the significance of his role in Manchester United’s journey back to success. The English forward possesses the talent and potential to become one of the best in the world, but he must now prove himself by winning trophies and leading the team to glory. Only then can Rashford truly cement his status alongside the likes of Mbappé and Haaland.
