When asked to name his footballing idols, he said: "I think for me, [Ryan] Giggsy, Nicky Butt, [Paul] Scholesy, Gary Neville - they've been the example to a lot of the young ones coming up, and they'll be forever that. So they hold special value, probably, to every academy player at United.

"Then for me it was the players like [Wayne] Rooney, [Cristiano] Ronaldo. [Ruud] van Nistelrooy was very good."

Before naming Manchester City's Argentinian frontman as the best around in the Premier League.

"I think, probably the most all-round centre-forward is Sergio Aguero," he added. "Even on an off day, he can score you three or four goals. That, for me, is one trait of a centre-forward that I would take all day long.

"When you're not having a good game, but you're still scoring goals. That is a skill on its own. Also Harry Kane, his positioning, his movement - very clever player. I like [Pierre-Emerick] Aubameyang as well."

Aguero leads the way in the Premier League top scorers standings. He's got an impressive 18 goals to his name with eights league matches left in the campaign.

The 30-year-old has been a consistent goal-scorer in England's top flight since making the move in 2011.

Will he beat his personal-best of 26 Premier League goals in a single season? Let us know what you think.
