Man Utd whiz Rashford credits this specialist coach for improvement

Manchester United striker Marcus Rashford is convinced his game is improving all the time.

And he admits the influence of striker coach Colin Little is rubbing off on him.

He told manutd.com: "Yes, definitely. That kind of changed my mindset towards the game. Usually, I'd like to get the ball to my feet and show people what I could do, but now I know there are other ways to affect a game. It kind of opened my mind to the game."

The no.10 role could be something Rashford revisits later in his career after filling the position at Under-16 level. "I don't regret playing in that position because it means now I can still play there if I need to – no.10, on both wings and up front as well. It means I have more in my armoury when it comes to the matches.

"I used to look up to players who would dribble at people, creating chances, scoring too. But the type of the player I want to be now is different to the type of player I wanted to be then."
