Manchester United legend Dwight Yorke insists Marcus Rashford is still developing his game and has urged the United fans to be patient with him.

The former United striker insists the Englishman should be allowed to enjoy himself and produce that top-level consistency needed to become one of the best in the world.

Speaking about Marcus Rashford’s season at Man United so far, Dwight Yorke told ESPN: “We haven’t seen the best of Rashford yet. I think that if we give him another couple of years and let him learn the ins and outs of the game a little bit more, he will only get better.

“I consider that he is still in that educational part, so he has another couple of years before he develops into the complete player. Marcus is being Marcus, and you just see a young man who loves playing football and has unbelievable ability.

“He has an eye for goal and all the other attributes you look for in a striker: He’s quick, he can go past people, he can create, he can score. He does all of that. We just need to allow him to enjoy it and produce that consistency.

“He is still in the development stage and people should just allow him to express himself so that, eventually, we’ll see an even better Rashford.”

Rashford has scored 18 goals and provided 11 assists in all competitions for the club this season.
