Manchester United striker Marcus Rashford's advice from Rooney

 

Marcus Rashford embraces Wayne Rooney after scoring the winner against Aston Villa in April

Wayne Rooney has limited his advice to United's teenage striker Marcus Rashford and just wants the Mancunian to enjoy himself.

The 18-year-old has joined his club captain in Roy Hodgson's provisional 26-man England Euro 2016 squad following a spring goal blitz for the Reds.

Rashford's breakthrough came at Rooney's expense when the 30-year-old suffered a knee ligament injury in February.

The academy product has since scored seven goals in 16 starts but Rooney has let him get on with his game.

“At the minute he's a young lad and he doesn't need that much advice from me. Just let him play and enjoy his football,” said Rooney.

“I am sure there will be a time when he does need it from myself, from the manager, from Giggsy, from other players, but I think the most important thing for him and the team is to just let him go and play and enjoy it.

Just enjoy it Rooney tells Rashford

“The young lads have come in at a really difficult time for the team for us. But even though we weren't going through the best of times I think they've been brilliant. They've come in under huge pressure in games that we've had to win and performed well for us.

“In particular Marcus has come in and scored some really important goals for us and really kept us in with a shout. He's been a good attacking point for the team.

“Everyone at the club is delighted. It is always great when you see young players coming through.

Credit goes to the manager for that. It would have been easier to play players who were a bit more senior but he's put them in and they've done well.

“It's always exciting working with young players. People forget how young Anthony Martial is. The club bought him so he hasn't come through the academy but he's still only a really young lad.

“He's still learning, improving and the same goes with Memphis, Marcus, Jesse (Lingard). It is an exciting time for the club.

“Hopefully they keep improving as players and it'll be a really bright future for Manchester United.”

Rashford's introduction has seen Rooney move into a midfield role mainly since his comeback and the young hitman's role up front has injected new life into the Reds.

“There have been a few changes in terms of how we play and the lads are enjoying it,” added Rooney.

“I feel we're playing better football – more exciting, attacking football – which obviously we always want to play. In terms of the changes the manager had to make at the time I think that has helped us and we have been more consistent.”
