Jamie Carragher tells Marcus Rashford to leave Manchester United

In England's friendly against Switzerland on Tuesday, Marcus Rashford was the sole goalscorer of the match, winning the match 1-0. The Manchester United forward started up front alongside Danny Welbeck and played the entire game.
Sky Sports pundit and former Liverpool defend Jamie Carragher commented on Rashford's performance and said that the 20-year-old striker might have to move away from Old Trafford to fulfil his potential.
Carragher said that it will be very difficult for Rashford to play up front at Manchester United as long as Romelu Lukaku is fit and playing, "I don't see Rashford ever displacing Lukaku so long as he is there, but Lukaku was at Chelsea and he had to come away from there and go to Everton. He ended up top scorer and then got his move to Manchester United."
The Sky Sports pundit said that Rashford will do well at a club like Everton where he will play every week: "Everton is a club where someone like a Rashford knows he can play every week. Last season, he played poorly against Brighton, Mourinho had a pop at him and Lukaku went straight back in the next game. That is the problem he will always have."
Carragher also said that Rashford has to be world-class to be the No. 1 striker at Manchester United and he may get there a few years from now, at 24.
Rashford scored in both of England's friendlies this past week, against Spain and Switzerland. The English striker has scored 32 goals for Manchester United in 126 matches in all competitions.
