Marcus Rashford told Cristiano Ronaldo advice can help him recapture Man Utd form

Marcus Rashford has been advised to go to Cristiano Ronaldo for some words of wisdom


"They have some incredible people at the club, he should speak to Cristiano Ronaldo and ask him for advice," Berbatov told The Sun.

"If there’s someone in the team who is experienced and is an icon in world football, like Ronaldo then go and ask him for advice, I’m sure he will give people time and wise words.

"Edinson Cavani brings goals wherever he goes, he should speak to him too. Don’t be like me, talk to teammates, because that cycle of bad form can go on and on."

Rashford's most recent outing at home to Aston Villa drew criticism, particularly one incident mid-way through the second half.

Villa shot-stopper Emi Martinez fumbled an effort causing the ball to spill in the direction of Rashford from close range, but instead of showing his predatorial instincts he simply stood stationary allowing the 'keeper another attempt to gather the ball.

Old Trafford erupted into a mix of frustration and confusion, though Rashford knows he has plethora of people determined to see him return to the kind of form that has made him invaluable to United in recent years.

It is an unfortunate fact that Rashford was one of three England players to miss their penalties during the Euro 2020 final shootout against Italy.

Marcus Rashford has cut a frustrated figure at times this season

The 24-year-old would not be the first talent to display signs of a hangover from a gruelling summer of international duty and has been contacted by former Red Devil David Beckham who issued his support.

Berbatov went on to explain how Rashford's rut could be stopped with the help of words of wisdom from those around him.

"Strikers need to score goals, it’s the job. Sometimes though, you can want it so much and you want to show everybody how much you care, you end up doing too much and it just doesn’t happen and you put even more pressure on yourself," he added.

"When you are in that cycle it’s difficult to look at the bigger things and this is where your friends, family and people you listen to come into play. They need to give you that advice."

Rashford has less than 18 months to run on his current United deal and the forward has garnered interest from elsewhere across Europe.
