Manchester United striker Marcus Rashford has responded to ex-Newcastle United forward Michael Owen's claim that he is not a natural goalscorer.

“He [Owen] can only go on what he sees," Rashford said to the Manchester Evening News. "Whereas the people around me [know]. Especially when I was younger, the reason why you started playing is because you see things that you like.

“For me, it was goals and watching exciting people doing exciting things with the ball.

"So, the important thing is what I know. I know what I want, what I want to become and what I will become if I keep my mind on it.”
