[Marcus Rashford says he was inspired by Cristiano Ronaldo] When Cristiano Ronaldo came to United, he was the one who everyone looked up to. The thing that impressed me the most was the fact he was only young when he came into the side and he wanted to be the best player in the side. He worked hard every single day, you saw him in the gym every single day and the results came on the pitch. He openly wanted to be the best player in the world. You have to have an approach like that – all the best players in the world do. It’s not arrogance or anything like that, it’s the mindset you need to achieve things

[Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford speaks about the influence veteran striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic has had on his career so far] It has been amazing. We’ve got a lot of world-class players in the team, especially in the forwards like Zlatan and Wayne. For the young lads, we can’t ask for anything better. The likes of me, Anthony and Jesse – watching these forwards play and how they train, their mentality, is so important. You can’t ask for more. Zlatan is very easy to speak to and he’s easy to get along with. The way he approaches every game is about winning. He wants to win, regardless of the opponent, whether we are home or away, whatever the odds, he always wants to find a way to win. That mentality is what you need to be at the top level. That is where he is and where he has been for years

[Marcus Rashford on watching the Brazilian Ronaldo growing up] He was a top player who won a lot of things, so when he’s saying good things about you it really stands out. When you’re young you watch clips of the best players in the world and try to emulate them. With Ronaldo, I liked how he always played free. No matter where he was playing, he went out there and expressed himself. When you do that, that’s when you play your best football

[Marcus Rashford on his winning penalty to punctuate an unprecedented comeback against PSG] I think it was just about keeping a cool head. That’s what you practice for. I wanted to take it. Those moments are the moments we live for, and we want to come out of them smiling after

[Marcus Rashford was handed his debut by Louis van Gaal in February 2016. Louis van Gaal was fired at the end of the 2015/16 campaign and replaced by Jose Mourinho, who Rashford then played under for two-and-a-half years] He [Ole Gunnar Solskjaer] has brought stability. In the past three years, you were never sure about anything. Now we have stability. Everyone’s in a good mood, a good place. It’s a completely different environment to what it has been, it feels back like normal. We really want to test ourselves now against the best in the league

[Marcus Rashford pointed to a key difference in his partnership with Anthony Martial which is paying dividends] We’re talking to each other as we’re playing so it makes it a lot more simple for you on the ball because it’s impossible to see him. So if he doesn’t speak it’s impossible to make that pass. If we can just give each other information when we pass the ball it makes it a lot more simple so that’s the next step for us

[Marcus Rashford take on Manchester United current position] We’ve been in a tough place. We’re still getting through that phase. The only way to get through it is to fight through it and win because they’re the things which keep everyone happy. When you’ve won, you wake up with a good feeling. The main focus was improvement and development. But we’re definitely going places

It has been a tough period and now I’m getting consistent games and playing week in, week out. As a forward that has huge importance, especially with [getting] chances. If you are not in the team and you’re in and out, you don’t quite have that confidence in front of goal. But when you’re having a run in the team it’s important to come up with the goods and once you start doing that it becomes second nature. You take it game by game and keep improving

I feel like I have experienced a lot in the game. Hopefully there are more big occasions to experience as well. While I’m still young, I have experience in big games that people of my age don’t usually experience. I have to use that to my advantage and try to help the team

I have been in two tournaments now and the squad is so important. With the qualities that every individual has in this team it is something we have to use to our advantage. People are going to be playing at different moments but when you are on the pitch you have to do your best, and try to come up with the goods. It is good competition; we really do have that kind of environment when we are in the camp together and it is positive

[Rashford feels he is starting to score with more instinctive finishes like the one he bent around Aro Muric on Sunday] For me, when I score those types of goals, or even tap-ins, it holds bigger importance because I know those are the goals I need to get more of,” he said. “The spectacular goals come every once in a while, so if you want to become a great goalscorer you have to score all types. That is the next step I’m focusing on

[Rashford revealed he is enjoying the good times in front of goal but is adamant there is plenty more to come in his career as he gets older] I just use these experiences now in my favour to better me in the future, because I know when I’m 25, 26, 27, they’re the years when I’m going to be playing my best football. I’m just looking ahead to those times really and improving as much as I can until then. In reality, my peak is not going to be for another four or five years. As good as things are now, they can only get better
