Man Utd kid Indy Boonen inspired Marcus Rashford

Indy Boonen is pleased with the way he's started his season at Manchester United.

And Boonen hopes to follow 'special' Marcus Rashford into the Old Trafford first-team.

Speaking to Voetbal Krant, the Belgian – who has been dubbed the 'new Ryan Giggs' – admitted: “They say you never know when you are close to the first team.

“Even with Marcus, they did not say that he was getting close to it.

“He really is a top player, I had a very good relationship with him. We blindly found each other in matches and in training.

“Rashford skipped the Under-21s, and immediately went into the first team. He is an example for every young player at United.

“When he has the ball, you immediately see that he has something special."
