Marcus Rashford Told Not To 'Copy' Cristiano Ronaldo At Man United

Marcus Rashford has been told NOT to copy Cristiano Ronaldo in a bid to recapture his form at Manchester United

​Rashford endured a difficult campaign at Man United this season, scoring just five goals in all competitions. 

His form plummeted which led to a spell out of the starting XI. He's since been the subject of intense transfer speculation

But the 24-year-old appears set to remain at Old Trafford and fight for his place under new boss Erik ten Hag. 

And ahead of the 2022/23 season, former Man United striker Louis Saha has offered him a piece of advice.

Saha rates Rashford as a 'terrific' player, but has told the forward NOT to 'copy' the Portuguese superstar - saying he should emulate some of his younger teammates. 

"I think he's a terrific player. I love him," Saha told PA. "I don't really understand why this happened, yes it could happen but I don't understand why.​

"Because this guy has got it all, all the quality, speed, he's got arrogance in his way of dribbling and he can score goals.

"He needs to come back to basics and a strange one I'm going to say this maybe not to copy Cristiano Ronaldo but to copy maybe some of the other teammates who are young and he needs to back to young Rashford."

He added: "Having that simpleness [sic] in his game, running at players, and that's it.

"Not thinking about whatever status that he had or he has been given by the press and his entourage. It's a new season.​

"He has suffered a lot from that, I'm sure. He is a competitor, he's a fan of Man United. So, I'm sure he's looking forward to rectifying everything because he has all the ability in the world to do that, he will be helped by the new manager for sure but by all the players because he's a top guy and I have no doubt he can do it​."

Rashford has been putting in the work since the season finished. 

He'll be hoping to rediscover his form as Ten Hag attempts his Man United rebuild.
