One of Manchester United's rising stars has revealed that he looked up to Real Madrid superstar Cristiano Ronaldo when growing up.
England forward Marcus Rashford joined the Red Devils in 2005, when the Portugal captain was still plying his trade at Old Trafford, and the 18-year-old remembers watching Ronaldo train at the club, and the Ballon d'Or winner's dedication and passion for the game has stayed with the young striker ever since.
"When Cristiano Ronaldo came to United, he was the one who everyone looked up to," Rashford said, as quoted by the Daily Mirror.
"The thing that impressed me the most was the fact he was only young when he came into the side and he wanted to be the best player in the side.
"He worked hard every single day, you saw him in the gym every single day and the results came on the pitch.
"He openly wanted to be the best player in the world."
Asked if he thought Ronaldo had become too arrogant or self-minded these days, the Englishman said no.
"You have to have an approach like that – all the best players in the world do," he added.
"It's not arrogance or anything like that, it's the mindset you need to achieve things."
Rashford has made 25 first team appearances in all competitions for the English giants, scoring 10 goals and assisting a further two strikes.
