Marcus Rashford Reveals His Dream Manchester United Six-A-Side Team
Marcus Rashford has picked his ultimate Manchester United six-a-side team, basing it only on the players he's seen play, and there's only one of his current teammates in the side.
United have had a lot of excellent players over the years but since Rashford broke into the team they have been fewer and further between than in the era before he broke through.
So it's no wonder that he's picked some well known legends ahead of his teammates. Speaking on an Instagram Live video with Bleacher Report he was asked for his ultimate six-a-side team.
"At the back I'd have Rio Ferdinand," he told the Q&A, "I'd probably have de Gea, but it was a close one between van der Sar.
"I'm all out attack from there. Id have Scholesy in front of Rio, Giggs on the right, Ronaldo on the left and Rooney up front.
"I'm not putting myself in. Not yet."
Rashford did add that that he hadn't seen much of Peter Schmeichel growing up, which is why David de Gea and Edwin van der Sar were considered ahead of the United legend.
De Gea is the only member of the current squad the Englishman has picked for his fantasy side, which is no surprise considering the Spain goalkeeper's four Player of the Season awards for the club in the past six years.
Between the six players there is 39 Premier League winners medals, with Ryan Giggs in possession of 13 of them, as the league's most successful player.
Asked who the best player he played with was, the 22-year-old answered his former teammate, Rooney, saying, "To get the opportunity to play with him was an unbelievable experience and it was just the little things he did for our games that makes him a special player.
"I was watching him quite closely. It's just the way he transitions between the positions like it's nothing. That's what makes him a world class player."
The club's all time top scorer was still playing when Rashford broke into the first team and his absence against FC Midtjylland in the Europa League partially led to the England striker getting the break in Louis van Gaal's team.
The current break to football due to Covid-19 could certainly benefit the club's leading scorer this season. He is currently injured but the delay could see him back for the conclusion of the campaign and mean he is fit for next summer's Euros.
