Manchester United attacker Anthony Elanga admits he speaks regularly with AC Milan veteran Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
The 20-year-old, a regular in the United team since Ralf Rangnick took over as interim manager in November, said “many players”, such as Ronaldo, his Swedish counterpart Ibrahimovic and Bruno Fernandes, had been guiding him during his career so far.
“I grew up watching United as well, so the likes of Wayne Rooney and obviously Cristiano Ronaldo,” said Elanga told Sky Sports.
“I speak to Cristiano a lot in training and he’s 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’ve also learnt a lot from Zlatan Ibrahimovic from the national team. He’s given me good advice. So I’ve got a lot of experience around me which can help me reach the next level.”
