An FA Cup winners medal and a call-up to the England squad for Euro 2016 followed, with six goals scored this season despite spending much of his time on the left of attack.

His second season at the club has been one of transition, with Jose Mourinho playing Zlatan Ibrahimovic as the lone striker for the bulk of this campaign with Rashford pushed to the left flank, but the 19-year old has spoken warmly of his Swedish teammate to

“I think it’s the way his mentality works. That is probably the biggest thing, not only for the young players but other players can take that from him as well.

Enjoy that? Give it a share!
