Rashford - A World Class Talent and Leader

Mourinho would do well to put Marcus Rashford in the key spot.  I have no doubt he can play in midfield or as a striker, and dominate the game.

His influence is calming, yet he has a burst of speed.  He is like Cristiano Ronaldo if Cristiano was an attacking midfielder.

I'd play him in center midfield, with Ibra up front.  Mourinho will probably do it the other way around, but Ibrahimovich is a natural with his back to goal.  Use Ibra as your target man, who lays it off to Rashford as he bursts into space.

Ibra himself recently said Marcus Rashford is the future of England.

Mourinho may put him on the left or right too.  Thats fine if he is in midfield, as his calm leadership will be at the heart of United's attack.  If he puts him up top left or right, the player will likely be isolated at times.  His influence will depend on the rest of the team rather than the other way around.

Rashford's body language suggests leadership.  He is proactive with his off the ball movement, and this puts him in better positioning than some of his teammates - and this gives him more chance to influence the game.

Players that do this well end up becoming world class talents.
