Man Utd ace Rashford admits he’s a huge admirer of Aguero despite City success

MARCUS RASHFORD reckons Manchester City have the perfect striker in Sergio Aguero.

Manchester United's frontman is still learning the trade at just 21.

And he is doing his best to pick up tips from City's all-time top scorer, who scored the winner in Saturday's FA Cup clash against Swansea.

In a wide-ranging interview with GQ Hype, Rashford said: "I think, probably the most all-round centre-forward, is Sergio Aguero.

"Even on an off day, he can score you three or four goals. That, for me, is one trait of a centre-forward that I would take all day long.

"When you’re not having a good game, but you’re still scoring goals. That is a skill on its own.

"Also Harry Kane, his positioning, his movement – very clever player. I like Aubameyang as well."

Rashford has scored 26 goals in 104 Premier League appearances since breaking into the United first-team in 2015.

He has another six in 31 England caps.

Despite Old Trafford manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer saying Rashford can be a "goal machine", the striker insists finding the net never came easily.


Rashford said: "I’d say before, maybe at about 17, goals and being a striker weren’t always a thing that seemed enjoyable.

"I’d always played on the wings and in a position behind the striker, and they were three positions that you can play through that you don’t have to stick to certain jobs, you know?

"You can play what you see and at first, when [they] were trying to get me to buy into becoming a forward, it was difficult, because the main thing for me was that you don’t see much of the ball sometimes.

"You might get one chance at goal and you have to take that chance, and it’s a different part of your brain, to be a striker. It’s completely different to the other positions.

"Before joining the first team, I was probably learning that and developing. But I’d say, especially over the last two years, that’s been at the front of my mind, and I’ve been trying to channel the way I play into getting goals and assists, and knowing which helps the team most.

"But like you say, it’s difficult when you’ve been playing on the right, and playing on the left.

"Now, how you feel going into the game, it doesn’t matter, because the main focus for me and the team is goals and assists. And the way we attack is to always to score and get an end product from an attack."
