PSG manager Thomas Tuchel has praised Marcus Rashford, ahead of his side’s clash with the Red Devils on Wednesday at Old Trafford.

The

England international

has done a great job with scoring eight goals in all competitions for his side as well as his work off the pitch, as he helped charities raise money to provide food during the Covid-19 pandemic

Rashford

scored the winning goal in the last two games against

PSG

in the

Champions League

and Thomas Tuchel has been impressed by him.

"We prefer that he no longer comes to play against us at the Parc des Princes," he joked at a press conference ahead of PSG's Champions League against United.

"He takes his responsibilities on the pitch, he's really impressive. I have faced him three times already and each time I saw a beautiful person, quite incredible. I like this kind of guy.

"Sportingly, he is very fast, he can score goals in several positions. He has determination on the finish, inside or outside the box. He's superfast on the counter-attack.

"He's bound to have a big impact at a club like Man Utd."

The Parisians

sit second in Group H but are desperate to win the game against

Manchester United

to secure their way to the knockout stage.

Tuchel knows his side must be on their peak to get 3 points against Solskjaer’s team at Old Trafford.

He said: "This game is like a final at Old Trafford. I really feel we are not here to find excuses. It is up to us to show the best possible things, to win. It is possible, although it is a big challenge.

"If we have the quality and the confidence to take possession of the ball against Manchester, that will be the best thing for us.
