'He has everything to reach the top' - Rashford backs 'incredible' ex-Man Utd team-mate Gomes for success at Boavista

The attacker elected to depart the Old Trafford in the summer but has made a promising start to life in Portugal

Manchester United star Marcus Rashford has backed former Old Trafford team-mate Angel Gomes to enjoy a glittering career.

Gomes departed the Red Devils at the end of his contract in the summer and took up a challenge in France by signing for Lille. However, he was immediately loaned out to Boavista in Portugal – his father’s homeland.

In a side fighting against relegation, the 20-year-old has excelled for the club in the early weeks of the campaign, chalking up three goals and four assists in only five outings.
