Manchester United Striker, Marcos Rashford, has revealed two ways he and his colleagues plan to stop Juventus striker, Cristiano Ronaldo in their Champions League match today.
Rashford claimed that the Juventus player can be stopped if his team mates decides to stay calm and refuse to show fear of him.
Ronaldo will play against his former club, Manchester United when they meet in their Champions League group game in Turin.
“The thing that is a massive eye-opener for me now is I remember when he first came his talent was arguably one of the biggest talents that we’ve seen at Manchester United for a long time; to have him and Wayne [Rooney] in the same team was amazing when you look back,” Rashford told Man United official website.
“But the way he’s sustained his career and even improved year on year is just amazing.
“People don’t do that at his age, people are usually heading towards the end of their career and their level starts going down a little bit, but he’s just gone up and up and up.”
On how United can stop Ronaldo, Rashford said, “For me, there is no bigger inspiration in football.
“I could speak for a lot of young players and United fans that watched the team when he was here and the majority of us have followed him as he’s moved on in his career and that’s what’s special about United.
“Once you play for this club you become part of this family even if you move on.
“There is always something that remains in your heart, you could see that when he returned [to Old Trafford] from our fans.
“When you play against a player like that you have to respect his qualities but at the same time you have to play your game and you can’t show fear to that type of player.”
