​Berbatov urges Rashford to get advice from Man Utd teammate Ronaldo

Manchester United star Marcus Rashford should look to veteran Cristiano Ronaldo in his bid to rediscover his best form.

That is the opinion of former United forward Dimitar Berbatov, who played with Ronaldo at the Old Trafford club.

Rashford has struggled to find his rhythm this season, after returning from shoulder and ankle problems in the off-season.

In a column forThe Sun, Berbatov wrote: “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 is a great talent and he is a great player for England, he is a product of the United academy and everybody knows he is a great player.

“What he does off the pitch is incredible.

“On the pitch he needs to fully concentrate and get out of this cycle because people unfortunately judge strikers on goals.

“You can run all day long, sacrifice yourself but if you don’t score you will be criticised, and if you score and don’t run you get called lazy.

“There’s always going to be people who criticise players, but it’s important not to pay attention to them, just find your rhythm, don’t rush things and try not to overcomplicate things.

“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.

“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.”
