Despite still being young, the Frenchman and the Englishman have been integral to their respective teams in the last couple of seasons.

Kylian Mbappe and Marcus Rashford are “big, big, big talents,” says Paul Pogba while labeling the pair as the “present and the future of football”.

Still only 22, Mbappe already has 11 major honors to his name including the World Cup. Recognized as one of the best players in the world, the forward is widely considered to be the rightful heir to the throne of Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi.

Rashford, meanwhile, has made a significant impact both on and off the pitch ever since his Manchester United debut six years ago. When he is not scoring goals and winning matches for his club, the 23-year-old is making sure the impoverished children do not go to bed unfed.

“They’re two big, big, big talents,” Pogba said of the pair, speaking in a  Q&A with Man Utd fans. “I think they are so young and so talented.

“They achieved so much for their young age. I think they are the present and the future of football.”

Pogba was then asked to name the best finisher in the Manchester United squad.

“The best finisher, I think it’s Mason [Greenwood]. Yeah, Mason, I would say,” he replied. “And Edi. Yeah, Mason with the feet and Edi with his head.”
