“He is United’s main attacking threat.”
Berbatov hailed Rashford as a “superstar in world football” but added that the 23-year-old needs to “work on his weaknesses”.
Rashford made his Man United debut in 2016 in the Europa League against Midtjylland and he marked the occasion with two goals during a 5-1 win.
The Englishman has gone from strength to strength with each passing campaign at Old Trafford. Last year was his most productive season with the Red Devils, which saw him contribute 22 goals and 12 assists.
During the ongoing 2020-21 season, Rashford has continued to demonstrate his significance to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer‘s team. The England international has already managed 20 goals and 12 assists in all competitions.
Most recently, he scored a crucial away goal in the first leg of his team’s quarter-finals Europa League clash against Granada on Thursday.

Berbatov on Rashford.
Berbatov, writing in his column for Betfair, believes that Rashford is among three players who can “dominate the future”.
“Marcus Rashford proved again that he is United’s main attacking threat. The performance against Granada wasn’t a classic, but Rashford’s goal made my day,” Berbatov said.
“Rashford is still a very young player and he is a superstar in world football. He (has) been leading United’s attack for a while now too, I think he is getting the credit he deserves and hopefully, he is only just getting started.

“Mbappe, Haaland and Rashford are the players I am looking at to dominate the future. Although he’s only 23, he’s already got lots of experience, he’s going into his fifth year of being a senior player and a big part of the team.
“Not many other players at his age can say they have had that level of experience at a big club.
“Now, it’s simple, he must continue to work on his strengths and work on his weaknesses.
“My view is that he should work on converting every chance he gets, sometimes his concentration isn’t 100% when he has a good goal scoring opportunity, so he needs to work on that.”
