Owen has been impressed by Rashford but not by Schneiderlin


As a pundit, it’s Michael Owen’s job to express his thoughts about teams, players and just about anything in the world of football and the Englishman certainly does it as he also voices his predictions on a regular basis concerning upcoming matches, generally in the Premier League.

Michael Owen has recently spoken about 2 players in Manchester United as there is 1 of them who has impressed the former Liverpool player but there is another 1 who has not had a very impressive stay in Old Trafford.

Marcus Rashford is the player that Owen has recently praised as Rashford is only a 18 year old performer who has already made a huge impact in Manchester United as the youngster has scored 3 goals in 5 appearances, he is one of the top goal-scorers in the entire squad of Jose Mourinho and for such a young player, this is something that is worth to mention.

Owen is certain that Rashford has what it takes to become a top player in Manchester United as the 36 year old pundit said: “Hopefully there is loads more to come from him. He’s hit the ground running and it’s always interesting to see how people adapt to making their debut

“His came in during strange circumstances, after an injury in the warm-up to Anthony Martial, so he won’t have had any time to think about it and, when that happens, you just go and do what you always do and he’s not looked back.

Unfortunately, the same thing cannot be said about Morgan Schneiderlin as Owen stated that the 26 year old player does not have what it takes to be a regular starter in the squad of Jose Mourinho. Morgan Schneiderlin is a 26 year old French midfielder who has struggled to make an impact in Old Trafford and Michael Owen believes that other players deserve to be called up instead of Schneiderlin and truth be told, Schneiderlin has only made 1 appearance so far out of the 7 opening matches of the season.
