Elanga: How Ronaldo helped me

World News

Manchester United starlet Anthony Elanga has shed some light on his relationship with superstar Cristiano Ronaldo. 

Although United have been the target of much criticism over the course of the season, there have been some bright sparks in their fortunes in this campaign, including the emergence of Elanga.

The young Swede has made 25 appearances across all competitions for the Red Devils' senior side since August 2021, and has thus become one of the most trusted youngsters under interim boss Ralf Rangnick.

With a talismanic veteran in the form of Ronaldo in his corner, the 20-year-old has now spoken about the kind of influence the five-time Ballon d'Or winner has had on him.

"I grew up watching United as well, so the likes of Wayne Rooney and obviously Cristiano Ronaldo," the Red Devils academy graduate told Sky Sports

"I speak to Cristiano a lot in training and he is always giving me advice.

"I grew up watching him at Old Trafford, so now to be able to play together is just an amazing feeling.

"There are many other players who have helped me as well. The likes of Victor Lindelof, who I play with internationally. Juan Mata and Bruno Fernandes too.

"I have also learnt a lot from Zlatan Ibrahimovic from the national team. So I have got a lot of experience around me which can help me reach the next level."
