“I think I’m not the slowest player in the world but if I would have the pace of Rashy, honestly, I would be a Ballon d’Or [winner] already.
“With the pace he has, oh my God, he’s unbelievable.
“It’s incredible the way he is and, when I talk about pace, it’s about running with the ball and without the ball, and, at the same time, the pace in his feet.
“The quality he has, the moves he has and the agility he has to come away from difficult situations. It’s unbelievable.”
Ferguson also hailed Rashford in a recent interview with BBC Sport, admitting he’s proud of the youngster for helping out young people during the pandemic.
“When he did what he did, I phoned him right away,” he said.
