Cole: Rashford won’t be a clinical centre-forward like Cavani

Former Red Devils forward doesn't see the England international as a reliable number 9.

Marcus Rashford

has scored 16 goals for

Manchester United

across all competitions this season. The England international has a conversion rate of 27 percent with the target found on average once every 158 minutes. However,

Andy Cole

believes the 23-year-old should not be considered as the team’s main striker as long as they have

Edinson Cavani

in their squad.

“Marcus is not going to be a clinical centre-forward like a Cavani,”

Cole told 


“Marcus will nick himself a certain amount of goals season in, season out, but he won’t be that individual you’re looking for to score 20 to 25 goals. I don’t think Marcus has got that clinical side in him.

“If you look at what Man Utd have now with Cavani; you know what you’re going to get [with him], it’s as simple as that.”
