Manchester United starlet Anthony Elanga admits he watches clips of Arsenal and Premier League legend Thierry Henry to improve his own game.

The 20-year-old has enjoyed a breakthrough season at Old Trafford and has been a shining light amid a poor campaign for the Red Devils.

Elanga, a United academy graduate, also made his senior international debut for Sweden earlier this year.

The winger drew inspiration from his father, Cameroon international Joseph Elanga, former Gunners striker Henry and a host of his club and international team-mates.

“Of course I look up to my father. Thierry Henry is someone I also loved watching growing up. He could play as a striker on the left wing, on the right wing. He was strong, fast and could finish,” Elanga told Sky Sports.

“I still watch his clips to this day and try to learn something from his earlier playing and incorporate it into my game.”

“I grew up with United too, so Wayne Rooney and of course Cristiano Ronaldo,” Elanga added.

“I talk to Cristiano a lot in training and he always gives me advice. I grew up with him at Old Trafford so it’s just an amazing feeling to be able to play together now.

“There are many other players who have also helped me. Players like Victor Lindelof, with whom I play internationally.

‘Juan Mata and Bruno Fernandes too. I also learned a lot from Zlatan Ibrahimovic from the national team. He gave me good advice. So I have a lot of experience around me that can help me get to the next level.”
