Manchester United striker, Mason Greenwood has said he feels like he is following the same path as Rashford at the club.
Greenwood is ready to learn from Marcus to be a better player for club and country in the future.
According to him, he picked Rashford as his role model because he is a shining example of how to successfully progress through the ranks at Old Trafford.
He added that he is gaining inspiration from what Rashford has achieved thus far in his career.
His words, “Yeah, definitely. He’s been in the academy and come through the ranks and I feel like I’m following in his footsteps.
“He’s a few years older than me but I can definitely take a lot of inspiration from what he has achieved so far.
“I’ve known him for a long time so I’ve seen how well he has done and how he has progressed as a player, so there’s lots to learn from being around him.”
On how preseason felt like with the remaining players, “It was a different level really,”
“The crowds there were all a lot bigger than what I was used to playing in front of, and there were a lot of fans from all around the world, so it was a good experience.
“To go away with strikers such as Anthony Martial, Marcus Rashford, Alexis Sanchez and Romelu Lukaku was the best way to learn, just seeing how they worked as top strikers and top finishers was great for me.
“They all looked after me and helped me on and off the pitch.”
Greenwood added on how he has developed as a player over the last 18 months of his fledgeling career: “It’s been good to play in some massive league and cup games with the first team, but I’m still doing the same things that I was doing in the Under 23s and youth teams.
“I think I have to trust the things that have got me to where I am and continue to try to do them in the first team.”
