'The wow factor' – Man Utd legend Dwight Yorke claims Cristiano Ronaldo and Marcus Rashford are undroppableDecember 10, 2021
CRISTIANO RONALDO and Marcus Rashford are 'undroppable' at Manchester United.
That is according to club legend Dwight Yorke.
New boss Ralf Rangnick started both men in his first game in charge – the 1-0 win over Crystal Palace.
And Yorke says the club's best players should 'never be rested'.
He told the Athletic: “The league table doesn’t lie.
“Some of the best players should not be rested. You start your best players, whether you’re in a schoolboy team or a Premier League team.
“Don’t complicate it, start Cristiano Ronaldo.
"United would be in an even worse position without him. He’s 36 but he’s a freak. He’s not like a normal 36-year-old player.

“Marcus Rashford is an outstanding talent. I’ve watched him closely in training — he’s fast, skilful and knows how to score.
“It is so hard to defend against those three qualities.
"Trust me, defenders hated playing against me because they didn’t know what was coming — apart from Roberto Carlos, who was the best one I played against.
“It’s the same with Rashford. He has the ‘wow’ factor.
“He’s a United fan, he’s from Manchester.
"That combination of talent and his background is priceless. He’s not good in the air but he can improve."
Yorke is also bored of criticism of United's midfield with many suggesting Fred and Scott McTominay are not good enough to help the club challenge for the league.
He added: “There’s another thing. Players know who is the best in the team — they’re not stupid.
“There’s a rank in every dressing room and always will be. But those players selected are also not performing as well as they should.
“I don’t like the criticism of the midfield, with people saying they’re not world class.
"Do United not have enough world-class players already to be winning more games?

“Was Darren Fletcher world class? John O’Shea? Nicky Butt? Phil Neville?
"No, yet they rose with world-class players around them and became very important players for United.
“Did Leicester have a team of world-class players when they won the league? No. The current United side should be challenging for the title.”
