The former Red Devils star was commenting on the talented youth coming through at Old Trafford when he spoke glowingly of the 18-year-old who has scored seven goals in 16 appearances this season.
"Rashford I think is a player. For me it's exciting to see him," he told Copa90's Poet and Vuj at the re-opening of the adidas store on Oxford Street, London.
"He's young, he comes in and plays with confidence. He plays with the kind of presence of a Man United player as well, at such a young age.
"It's great to actually see young players come in like that."
