It’s easy to forget the Marcus Rashford is still only 19, despite being a regular for Manchester United and the young striker had a fan-boy moment of sorts, when he ran into Barcelona legend Ronaldoinho while on vacation in the United States.
Rashford has been vacationing with his club teammate Jesse Lingard, met the 37-year-old Ronaldinho and captioned an image of the duo “Nice to sit down and chat with the king @ronaldinho."
Ronaldinho, who won the World Cup with Brazil in 2002, put up the same picture on his Instagram profile with the caption reading “@Marcusrashford Tem muito futebol, além de ser um jovem humilde e gente boa,” which when translated means, “He has a lot of football, besides being a humble young man and a good person!”
The Brazilian was widely regarded as the best player in the world during his time at Barcelona, where he won the FIFA World Player of the Year award twice (2005, 2006). Ronaldinho wasn't all about individual brilliance, however, are helped the Catalans break their continental trophy by driving them to a UEFA Champions League title in 2006.
Whether the speedy Rashford picks up some Brazilian flair will be seen when the 2017-18 Premier League season kicks off on the 12th of August.
