Manchester United youngster names Marcus Rashford and Mason Greenwood as his inspiration

Manchester United youngster Anthony Elanga is hoping to follow in the footsteps of Marcus Rashford and Mason Greenwood.

The player is said to be pleased to being coached by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and is looking forward to being promoted into the first-team squad.

“You look at the likes of Mason and Rashy, there is a pathway there,” Anthony Elanga told PA News Agency when asked about his ambitions of breaking through to Man United’s senior squad.

“It just shows you that if you’re willing to put the work into it and continue to work hard day in, day out in training there’s a pathway for you there. Obviously, we’ve got a manager in Ole trusting the youngsters, so there’s a pathway there and I’ve just got to keep working hard.

“In training I’m always working hard and the way that I train is the way that I play. You can see that in the results and I’m just happy at the moment, I’m enjoying my football.”

Elanga is currently one of the best youngsters from United’s academy and also won the Jimmy Murphy young player of the year award for his excellent work last season.

The Swedish winger has scored 3 goals and assisted 3 in 8 games for our U23 side this season.
