Manchester United striker Marcus Rashford has spoken about how former team forwards Wayne Rooney and Cristiano Ronaldo have influenced him.
“There are definitely things you can borrow from their game and try to bring into your own, while still maintaining your style and traits on the pitch,” Rashford said to The Athletic journalist Laurie Whitwell.
“But yes, of course, Ronaldo and Rooney have taught me a lot.”
“I just loved watching them play. We used to go to Old Trafford and watch matches and I used to see them score and do great things on the pitch. Afterwards, I’d go home and watch footage of them playing on YouTube,” he said.
“When they were both at their peak and playing alongside them, it was absolute bliss to watch them. To have the opportunity to learn from them, to watch them is a privilege.”
Ronaldo and Rooney played together for Manchester United from 2004 to 2009.
Meanwhile, Rashford played 24 games in the EPL this season, scoring eight goals and making six assists.
