Cristiano Ronaldo is unsurprisingly among three Manchester United stars that Rasmus Hojlund has revealed he grew up idolising.

Aged 21 and a huge United fan, the striker grew up watching the club dominate English football by winning a catalogue of major honours.

Success was delivered by some of the biggest and best players in the business and United’s past talent will have been a huge source of inspiration for today’s prospects.

Hojlund is certainly no exception, with the youngster citing five-time Ballon d’Or winner and global superstar Ronaldo as his idol.

When asked on The United Stand to name his most influential players Hojlund responded: “It has to be Cristiano.

“[Wayne] Rooney as well I’m thinking about, [Carlos] Tevez as well, but Cristiano was probably the guy.

“I remember supporting him and following him the next year as well, and following him back again and watching him in the period when he was at Juventus and Real Madrid as well.

“He has always been my idol and I’ve followed the clubs where he’s been and supporting United, they were my first team really.”

Ronaldo joined United at the age of 18 and became one of the best players in world football during a glittering first spell at Old Trafford.

The Portuguese legend, who is adored by millions, won three Premier League titles and the Champions League at the club.

Playing alongside him in the formidable attack was Rooney, United’s all-time top scorer who netted 253 goals for them during a 13-year spell.

He was also named in the Premier League Hall of Fame, cementing his status as a legend in English football folklore.

Tevez spent just two years at United on loan from West Ham but his time at Old Trafford was certainly not shy of success.

The Argentinian won five major honours and scored 34 goals for the club, although controversially signed for rivals Manchester City after he left.

Hojlund can certainly take inspiration from all three names as he continues to find his feet at United following a difficult start after his £72million move from Atalanta.

He has scored four goals in his last four appearances for the club and has a tally of ten in total for the season so far.
