Callum Wilson names Manchester United star as best player he’s ever played with

Newcastle striker Callum Wilson has opened up on what it’s like to play alongside Marcus Rashford and claims the Manchester United star is the best player he’s ever played with.

The pair have been selected together as part of Gareth Southgate’s squad in the past and Wilson is convinced that Rashford is the best player he’s ever played with.

Rashford is enjoying his greatest season to date in a Manchester United shirt, even though he wasn’t considered a starting player for England at the World Cup.

The 25-year-old has been crucial in what has been a brilliant season for the Reds, with Erik ten Hag winning a trophy and pushing for a place in the top four.

This season to date, Rashford has scored 29 goals from 52 appearances across all competitions.

“The best player I’ve probably played with is Marcus Rashford,” Wilson told JD Sports, as quoted by the Manchester Evening News. “I think he’s now come into form and people are seeing the best of him, but even before that, as someone who’s played with him and trained with him, you see his quality and how good he actually is.

“You’re waiting for him to do it on more regular and consistent basis, and now he’s doing that, the whole world are kind of putting him in the category that he should be in.”
