Manchester United player named Champions League player of the week

Manchester United forward, Marcus Rashford, has beaten the likes of Lionel Messi, Neymar and Robert Lewandowski, to be named the UEFA Champions League player of the week.

The 22 year old had a remarkable game on Wednesday, after coming on as a substitute to score a hat-trick against RB Leipzig.

The performance has seen Rashford also overtake Kylian Mbappe (38 minutes) as the fastest substitute to score a hat-trick in the competition, after taking just 27 minutes to do so.

The achievement comes at a time Rashford was also awarded an MBE, along with winning a Pride of Britain award.

It’s been a great time for the man who already has six goals this season, and we hope the good run continues this weekend.
