Man Utd attacker Elanga: Ronaldo always talking to Sancho and I

Manchester United attacker Anthony Elanga has treasured working with Cristiano Ronaldo this season.

Sweden winger Elanga has occasionally partnered Ronaldo during his first season in senior football, helping the Portugal captain score a decisive hat-trick in the 3-2 win over Norwich on April 16 – United's only win in their last seven games.

Elanga is unequivocal about Ronaldo's positive influence, telling the club's official website: "You can see his record and the amount of goals he's scored.

"He know what it takes to get to the top so it's more than right to just speak to someone like that. And yeah, we have a chat the day before or even during a game. You might see us in the warm-up.

"He'll speak to me and (Jadon) Sancho together about what we can do in the game, to affect the games – and it's important to have someone like that in the team.

"He is someone I look up to and speak to and ask for advice and stuff. He is a special player to work with."
