After four seasons at Manchester United, Matteo Darmian left the Red Devils last summer to join Parma. The Italian international (36 caps) was able to rub shoulders with great players such as Wayne Rooney or Zlatan Ibrahimovic. If the latter marked Matteo Darmian, the latter said that he was also very impressed by Marcus Rashford (22 years old). “I still remember his first session with the senior team as if it were yesterday. I immediately thought, “wow, he’s an amazing player,” he told the Guardian.
The defender even thinks that his former teammate has not finished progressing and can win the most prestigious trophy on an individual level, the Golden Ball. “If he continues to work as he has done so far, he can be a Ballon d’Or winner in the years to come. I’m convinced. He is very young and can still improve. For me, he can reach the level of Kylian Mbappé. Marcus Rashford is considered a future great player in English football. And Matteo Darmian only confirms it.
