Man Utd striker Rashford welcomes Ronaldo comparison

Manchester United striker Marcus Rashford admits he is flattered to be likened to Cristiano Ronaldo.

United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer made the comparison last week.

Rashford responded:"Ever since I've come through they always compare you with forwards that have been in the past and it's something that you don't really have much of an input on.

"All you do is try to do your best on the pitch and then people outside do the talking about it.

"It will be a similar thing for (the next crop). You see the other young players coming through now, they'll have it in the future as well where they're always being compared to other forwards.

"It's just a thing people like to do with forwards so it's obviously nice, definitely a compliment.

"For me, I understand how far I've got left to go to reach the heights they reached so I am very clear-minded and just focused on myself."
