Thomas Tuchel labels Marcus Rashford as a threat for Paris Saint-Germain
Paris Saint-Germain manager Thomas Tuchel believes Manchester United striker Marcus Rashford is a big threat ahead of his sides crucial encounter with the English side at Old Trafford.
Tuchel’s side need all maximum points to boost their hopes of making it into the next stage of the Champions League.
The French Champions last visited Old Trafford in February 2019, a tie in which they won 2-0, however, the victory was made meaningless thanks to United’s historic comeback at the Parc des Princes, after Rashford scored the crucial penalty that handed the Red Devils qualification.
And speaking ahead of their return encounter, Tuchel labelled Rashford as a threat for this side.
“We value him [Marcus Rashford] very much when he plays in England and not Parc des Princes, honestly, because (him scoring against us) gets a little bit annoying.”
“The guy is a very young adult who takes his responsibility on and off the pitch very impressively.”
“I have met him as an opponent three times and every time I’ve met a calm and humble guy and a nice person, which is amazing. I like this mixture a lot.
“For me personally, the sporting side is clear – he’s a big threat with his speed, with his ability to score, with his determination and his finishing.
“He’s very precise, taking shots inside and outside of the box. He is super rapid on counter-attacks and strong in the air with headers.”
“He’s had a big impact and it’s nice to see guys like him from the academy having such a big impact in a big, big club like United.”
Solskjaer‘s side needs just a point from their remaining two Group games to progress into the knockout stage of the competition.
