‘Rashford won’t be a clinical centre-forward like Cavani’ – Man Utd striker can’t be relied upon to get 20 goals, says Cole

Marcus Rashford Edinson Cavani

Marcus Rashford is never “going to be a clinical centre-forward like Edinson Cavani”says Andy Cole, with Manchester United told they cannot rely on theirhighly-rated academy graduate to net 20 goals a season.

He is already up to 16 for the current campaign, but 1999 treble winner Cole believes the experienced Uruguayan snapped up as a free agent last summer is the most predatory finisher on the books at Old Trafford.

“Marcus is not going to be a clinical centre-forward like a Cavani,” Cole, who recorded 121 goals for United in 275 appearances, told talkSPORT.

“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.”

Of Rashford’s 16 goals this season, eight have come in the Premier League.

His conversion rate across all competitions is 27 per cent, with the target found on average once every 158 minutes.

In comparison, Cavani nets every 163 minutes – with seven goals registered across 22 games – and has a 26% conversion rate.

Rashford also tops his club colleague in the assist stakes, teeing up eight efforts forteam-mates.

Cavani, with two assists to his name, can point to the fact that he has less game time and was being asked to make an immediate impact off the bench before edging ahead of Anthony Martial in the pecking order over recent weeks.

United have found plenty of value in Cavani and have the option of triggering a 12-month extension in his contract to the summer of 2022.

There have, however, been plenty of calls for the Red Devils to bring in another long-term No 9, with doubts continuing to be raised when it comes to Rashford and Martial’s ability to lead the line.
