Simon Jordan believes that it would be ‘silly’ to label the Manchester United striker as world-class after his incredible run of form.

Marcus Rashford has been sensational since returning from the World Cup break at the end of December, scoring more goals than any other player in Europe’s top leagues.

He has 13 in his last 15 and has been pivotal for Manchester United’s recent success in the league where they currently sit five points off first place.

But talkSPORT’s Jordan doesn’t believe that he should be labelled as ‘world-class’.

“What I have always pushed back against is the characterisation, he is a world-class player and that he is in an elite position.

“I think he is a very good player, you do not get to play for Manchester United, in whatever guise they are, if you are not a very good player. But I don’t think he is [world class].” he said on talkSPORT.

“He is in a rich vein of form,” he continued. “He is in a remarkably confident state of mind. Even the goal he scored the other day, which was disallowed, he was so sharp, it was out of his feet and then, bang, back of the net. You can see that in a player, you can see when their confidence is brimming.

“Confidence and moments of time are one thing, a body of work and a consistent level of attainment, that puts you above everybody else, that’s the usage of the word world-class.

“At this moment in time, while Rashford’s form is extraordinarily good, I think it is a bit silly to call him world-class. To say, at this moment of time he is at the top of his game, I think that’s a fair assessment.”
