Sheringham - who won the Treble with United in 1999, scoring and setting up the two last-minute goals in the Champions League Final - is a big admirer of the forward's class.
"I love the way he plays football and I can understand the way he plays football," said Sheringham.
"He is a touch player, a class player. The players like playing with him and he now understands what he has to do at United.
"The demands on your body playing for them are incredible.
"You have to win every game and that doesn't happen at any other club. That puts a huge burden on you, physically and mentally."
