Ighalo lauds Man Utd teammate Rashford: The best player in Europe

Manchester United signing Odion Ighalo believes Marcus Rashford is the best player in Europe right now.

Ighalo, signed from Shanghai Shenhua on deadline day, will compete with Anthony Martial and Mason Greenwood for a starting spot while Rashford is out with injury.

"These players are great players," Ighalo told MUTV. "Greenwood is a very good player; young, very good left foot, I've watched some of his game.

"Martial is very skilful, he can do so much magic with the ball and Rashford I think is, for me, one of the best, if not the best player in Europe right now.

"He's doing well, scoring goals; he's fast, he has good technique. Unfortunately, he is injured now and hopefully, I am looking forward to playing with him because he is a good player.

"So, for me, it is just a plus to the team, to work hard with these guys and make sure we end the season very well."
