Bruno Fernandes has hailed Manchester United teammate Marcus Rashford and revealed that he has been stunned by the player’s ability.

The Portuguese playmaker has been impressive at Old Trafford since joining from Sporting in January.

Ahead of facing Crystal Palace on Thursday evening, Fernandes was asked by BT Sport to name his ‘perfect player’ and picked current teammate Rashford for the pace element.

Asked which player – that he has either played for or against – he would choose for their speed, Fernandes explained: “I will choose Rashford because I think what Rashford has is pace, amazing pace, but with amazing quality.

“It’s difficult sometimes going at that velocity to have the quality to do the right things, you know. To choose the right time to shoot, to pass, to skill.

“I will choose Rashy for sure. He surprised me a lot.

“Of course I already knew his qualities, because he is one of the best young players in the world for me.

“I think I will choose Rashy because for me this [pace] is one of the best qualities he has.”
