Man Utd striker Hugill: Ronaldo and Cavani great mentors

Manchester United striker Joe Hugill is preparing for tomorrow night's FA Youth Cup final against Nottingham Forest.

Ahead of the final, Hugill has revealed how he has been learning from both Cristiano Ronaldo and Edinson Cavani when training with the senior team and that it has helped him prepare for the cup final.

He told the Athletic: "I loved being over there (with the senior team) a few times.

"Learning off the greatest player ever in Ronaldo. Cavani too. They are always giving you tips on moving in the box, where you can be, where you don't want to be.

"You know the stature of the club, they are great players, but you want to show what you can do as well.

"You focus on your training, hopefully you impress. I scored a few goals in training games."
