Manchester United striker Marcus Rashford has revealed how former forwards Wayne Rooney and Cristiano Ronaldo have inspired him.
“I just loved watching them play. We went to Old Trafford and saw the matches, and on the pitch, I saw them scoring and doing amazing things. After that, I’d go home and watch their game video clips on YouTube.
It was an utter pleasure to watch them when they were both at their best and playing together. It is a privilege to be able to learn from them, to watch them.
There are certain aspects you can borrow from their game and try to bring to your own while keeping your style and field characteristics.
But, of course, indeed, Ronaldo and Rooney taught me a great deal,” said Rashford.
From 2004 to 2009, Ronaldo and Rooney played together at Manchester United.
This season, Rashford has made 24 appearances in the Premier League, scoring 8 goals and 6 assists. Here you can research its statistics.
A strong mix of talent and team play is the combination of Rooney and Ronaldo. They worked with each other and were a tool of the Ferguson system.
