Former England International striker, Michael Owen, has said Manchester United’s Marcus Rashford lacks the “killer instinct” to be a consistent, natural goal-scorer like Kane or Aguero and can never learn it.
Michael Owen is the fifth all-time highest goal-scorer in England and the Three Lion national team boss, Gareth Southgate, wants Rashford to be a consistent goal scorer for his club and country.
But Michael Owen is of the opinion that the Manchester United striker simply isn’t wired that way.

“I don’t think he is obsessed with goals.
“He is a better all round player than me, he has a great touch and all round skill that I never had, but he hasn’t got the killer instinct that I had.
“I was just obsessed…but I don’t think scoring goals is what he goes to bed craving.
“Players like Robbie Fowler, Aguero or Harry Kane these people who are obsessed with goals. I don’t think he is obsessed with goals,” Owen said according to UK Mirror.
Michael Owen was asked if a striker can ever develop that instinct without having it naturally from the start, Owen’s response was explicit, and on point: “No.”
