Gareth Southgate believes Marcus Rashford can be England's Cristiano Ronaldo

"They understand it is hard to pick players if we are seven, eight weeks into the season and they are not playing", Southgate said.

"We have to remember that Harry Kane at that age had hardly played anywhere near the matches for Spurs", he added, emphasising that Rashford is yet to reach his full potential and will continue to improve.

Even with some of the step-overs and things [Cristiano] Ronaldo was doing at that age he wasn't converting them into the number of goals, so we have to give him [Rashford] time to develop.

Manchester United have endured something of a mixed start to the new Premier League campaign, with Jose Mourinho's men having lost two and won two of their opening four games.

The Portuguese is considered to be a hindrance in Rashford's development by some, as he has dipped in and out of the starting XI at Old Trafford, struggling to hold down a consistent first-team place.

"It's not my business to interfere with club managers, they have a hard job to do and they have big squads at the top six, huge competition for places".

"His confidence will be boosted I'm sure, with two goals against top-quality opposition". "He's got huge competition for places at his club, so you can understand (his frustration)". "He's a huge admirer of him, but he's got his job to do", Southgate maintained.

The Portuguese boss will have been glad to record a 2-0 win over Burnley in the last clash before the worldwide break.

Southgate believes there is much more to come from him, but his prospects are not helped by the bit-part role he continued to play at United.

Southgate is confident that Rashford's spell away with England will have raised his morale, as he also netted in the 2-1 Nations League defeat against Spain on Saturday. "We know how exciting he is, we know that he's going to be a top player", Southgate told Sky Sports.

Is Rashford good enough to be Manchester United's centre-forward for them trying to win the Premier League or the Champions League?
