​Rashford in awe of Man Utd stars Rooney and Ibrahimovic

Manchester United youngster Marcus Rashford can't believe his is learning from Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Wayne Rooney.

Ibrahimovic joined United in the summer from Paris Saint-Germain and is the club's leading scorer in the Premier League with 14 goals this season.

Speaking at a Nike event in Germany, which was streamed live on skysports.com, Rashford, 19, explained why Ibrahimovic's arrival at Old Trafford has been so significant.

"For the young players to see his character and the way he approaches every game is invaluable," he said. "Some players can't bring that when they move clubs.

"We have to try to learn from him while he is here and take what we can from his game."

He says along with Ibrahimovic, Wayne Rooney is the best player he has played alongside.

"Zlatan and Rooney are the two that stand out," he said.

"I grew up watching Rooney play week in, week out at Old Trafford, so those are the two that you look at and try to emulate."
