Marcus Rashford has revealed that Laurent Koscielny has been the hardest opponent he’s faced so far.
The 18-year-old striker is currently doing well for Manchester United having scored 12 in 27 since last season. However, even he can’t deny how difficult it is to play against our centreback.
Speaking to the Red Devils’ Twitter account, the England international admitted that the Frenchman is really hard to go toe to toe with.
To be fair, it’s no surprise, Kos is a certified boss. However, considering how long it’s taken other players, the media and managers to realise just how good he is, I can’t help but feel a little smug still.

So far, the only match that Kos has missed this season, apart from our EFL Cup clash against Nottingham Forest, is our opening game of the campaign against Liverpool. This was down to his late involvement in Euro 2016 and, despite probably needing more rest, he bounced back.
