Marcus Rashford: I am trying to emulate this Man United duo

The Manchester United striker describes Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Wayne Rooney as his best-ever team-mates

Marcus Rashford says he is hoping to emulate Manchester United duo Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Wayne Rooney.

The Red Devils played out a 1-1 draw with bitter rivals Liverpool in the Premier League on Sunday evening after Zlatan Ibrahimovic cancelled out James Milner’s opener from the spot.

Ibrahimovic netted an equaliser with just six minutes remaining to keep Manchester United’s slim title hopes alive.

The 34-year-old striker has scored 14 goals in 20 games in the Premier League this season following his free transfer to Old Trafford from Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain.

Rooney, meanwhile, equalled Sir Bobby Charlton’s record of 249 goals in a Manchester United shirt after the Red Devils captain netted in a 4-0 win against Reading in the FA Cup third round earlier this month.

Asked to name the best player that he has played alongside in his career so far, Rashford named his current Manchester United team-mates.

“Zlatan and Rooney are the two that standout the most. I’ve grown up watching Rooney play week in week out. They’re the two I look at and try to emulate,” Rashford is quoted as saying by Sky Sports News HQ.
