For This, the Manchester United Wonderkid Is Enthusiastic Find the Identity of the Game
Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford wants to emulate Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo. But he is also ambitious to build a unique identity to achieve success.
Rashford has become an important figure for the club and his country. But he admits he’s still learning after a lot of attention since his debut at Manchester United 19 months ago.
The 19-year-old player is focused on finding his own way as a player. But he is happy to get inspiration from big players, including former team-mate Wayne Rooney and two world superstars Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi.
“Ronaldo in the Super Cup, he only played for 20 minutes or more. But if you look at his movements and how he turns into what he is, it’s amazing how he keeps going, “Rashford said, when asked to name the best player he ever played with or face.
“Ronaldo, Messi, Rooney, Neymar. I tried to take samples from them, especially when I was young, until I found my own identity. ”
“I try to match those players and they are the factors that make me grow. It’s hard to mention certain aspects, but we can take things like the mentality of them, “Rashford added.
Looking back at his previous idol, Rashford added: “Brazilian Ronaldo has had the best World Cup appearance. And he’s one of the most fun players to watch. There are a lot of top players playing in the World Cup and rising to another level. ”
One aspect in which Rashford is determined to thrive in its own way is a free kick. He scored a brilliant winning goal in the game against Celta Vigo in the Europa League last season.
But when asked if he wanted to imitate the style of ‘knuckleball’ Ronaldo, he said: “No, it’s actually a different technique. I can do it like Ronaldo, but I have not done that in a match. ”
Rashford is expected to win his 12th match with England in this week’s midweek World Cup qualifier against Slovenia at Wembley. Victory will guarantee the Three Lions team in next summer’s tournament. (Source: ESPN)
