The former England forward Stan Collymore wants Marcus Rashford to decide whether he wants to be central striker or wide forward and claims that he risks becoming the new Theo Walcott.

“If Rashford isn’t careful then, sooner rather than later, he is going to find himself cast as the modern-day Theo Walcott,” Collymore told Mirror.

“Someone who isn’t seen as an out-and-out winger or straight-up No.9 but a Jack of all trades as a forward and master of none.

“That’s why now is the perfect time for him to decide whether that’s the way he wants to go. Or would he rather be a player who lives or dies as a No.9.

“If he’s happy to play anywhere if it means being an England regular then that’s his call.

“But if that is the case over the next five to 10 years then I worry about the negative impact such a decision could have on his club career because of the message it sends”.

Marcus Rashford has scored 47 goals in 174 appearances for United, while for country he has seven goals in 33 games on his account.
