AC Milan star Leao laughs off claims Man Utd pair 'Rashford and Sancho are better' than him

AC Milan star Rafael Leao has laughed off claims that Manchester United pair Marcus Rashford and Jadon Sancho are better than him.

Former Italy star Cassano has named the Man Utd pair, along with Liverpool's Luis Diaz and Barcelona sensation Ansu Fati as superior players to Leao, and said that he doesn't make enough of a difference in games.

The comments made have raised eyebrows in Italy, as he discussed the merits of the Portuguese forward.

"He would not be a regular starter in the best teams in Europe," Cassano told Bobo TV on Monday.

"Liverpool have Luis Diaz. Barcelona have Ansu Fati who is 19-year-old. Leao plays in Serie A, not a top league.

"To me, Sancho and Rashford are better than Leao, Sancho is phenomenal. Leao is a mix between Dembélé and Martial. He is not worth €150m he doesn't score 50 goals per season, therefore he doesn't really make the difference."

However, the 23-year-old hasn't let Cassano's opinion bother him, and liked an article on his Twitter feed that had reported on the quotes from the ex-Italy striker.
