Former Manchester United midfielder Owen Hargreaves has hailed Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford as a future Manchester United captain after showing leadership qualities during Manchester United’s 5-0 thrashing of RB Leipzig.

Rashford scored a hat-trick in the demolition of RB Leipzig but Rashford caught the attention of every football fan when he allowed Anthony Martial, who is yet to score this season, to take a penalty even though he was on a brace with a chance to score a hat-trick.

Rashford then went on to score his third of the game in the 92nd minute.

Speaking of Rashford’s decision to let Martial take the penalty, Hargreaves said: “I love that – he’s looking out for his teammates. Marcus knows he’s gonna get his numbers, I love that.

“That’s being a great teammate. That’s why he’s gonna be the captain because he thinks about everyone else.”
