Will Mbappe and Rashford Be Future of Football ?

2 Min Read

Paul Pogba of Manchester United has declared Marcus Rashford and Kylian Mbappe “the present and the future of football.”

Rashford has become a vital figure for club and country at the age of 23, and has drawn plaudits for his off-field campaigns to help impoverished children as well. 

Mbappe, meanwhile, has emerged as one of the world’s best strikers and won the 2018 World Cup with France alongside Pogba.

Pogba said of the pair: “They’re two big, big, big talents. I think they are so young and so talented.

“They achieved so much for their young age. I think they are the present and the future of football.”

Pogba was also asked the eternal question of which player he would pick between Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, and declined to offer a preference.

“It’s a nice but trick question as there is no best for me,” the midfielder said. “Two different players. They are two players who both bring joy to watch.

“Any people are going to have their own opinion of them, just two legends. Me, I would just say they are two legends and not one is better than the other one. Just two people that give us football players, or football lovers, joy to watch.”

Pogba was also asked who was the best finisher on United’s squad, and offered a split decision between Mason Greenwood and Edinson Cavani.

“The best finisher, I think it’s Mason. Yeah, Mason, I would say. And Edi. Yeah, Mason with the feet and Edi with his head,” Pogba said.
