REVEALED! Man United star watches Ronaldo, Messi before playing matches

Marcus Rashford has revealed he watches clips of Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo and Neymar in an attempt to improve his game. The 21-year-old is set to be Manchester United’s first-choice striker this term following the departure of Romelu Lukaku to Inter Milan.
United begin their first full season under Solskjaer on Sunday when they welcome Frank Lampard’s Chelsea team to Old Trafford. Rashford, who signed a new four-year contract with United last month, will be looking to improve on his 13-goal tally from the 2018/19 campaign. Speaking ahead of United’s Premier League opener against Chelsea, the England forward told The Times: “I still watch clips of loads of players, Ronaldo, Messi, Neymar.”
“If they’ve done something at the weekend, I’d want to know how they’ve done it. Messi’s natural abilities are crazy. It’s a joy to watch him but also for the [way he uses] space. I remember the first time I played Barcelona in pre-season [in Maryland, 2017], the team were like clockwork based around him. ”
“It wasn’t necessarily what Messi was doing on the ball that was, ‘Wow.’ It was the positions he was taking up, and how he affected a game without even touching the ball, that were also special.”
“When I was younger, I’d watch games, watch clips on YouTube, then go out, and try everything. I watched Ronaldinho doing that flip-flap. I watched a lot of the Brazilian Ronaldo when I was really young.”
“Ronaldo was the one that made you love the game and want to try things that people wouldn’t normally try. Just everything. It’s not scripted.”
