Andy Cole believes Marcus Rashford does not have the clinical edge to replicate Edinson Cavani at Manchester United.
Cavani has drawn huge praise for his instinctive play as centre-forward this season and was found by Rashford to give United the lead in their 3-3 draw against Everton on Saturday.
Meanwhile, Rashford has been one of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s most important players operating on the flanks, but missed two gilt-edged opportunities at Old Trafford as United dropped crucial points in their Premier League title challenge.
Rashford has already surpassed Eric Cantona’s goal tally for the Reds and continues to impress on and off the field.
But the England international has never lead the line with conviction and Solskjaer’s former teammate Cole believes he ‘won’t be that individual that you’re looking for 20 or 25 goals.’
Speaking on TalkSPORT’s Sunday Session, Cole noted that Rashford will ‘nick a certain amount of goals’ but does not believe he is the man that can be relied upon to score the lion’s share for the Reds.
