Marcus Rashford revealed his love for Arsenal legend Thierry Henry on Instagram this Thursday, a move which is likely to annoy more than a few Manchester United fans.

The 18-year-old has been fantastic for United recently, pretty much saving Louis van Gaal’s season from being a complete and utter disaster. It still wasn’t great of course, but imagine how much worse things could have been without Rashford’s emergence?
It’s hardly surprising that he idolises Thierry Henry, as pretty much every striker on the planet does. The French forward was unquestionably one of the best players the game has ever seen, and the best modern strikers should want to emulate him.
Manchester United fans would obviously rather Rashford was looking to emulate a United legend like Ruud van Nistelrooy, Eric Cantona, or George Best, but if he could achieve even half of what Henry did during his career then they’ll unquestionably be thrilled.
Rashford is currently away with the England squad, and could continue his meteoric rise with an appearance or two at the Euro 2016 Championships.

It’s always nice to know that players from other top clubs wish they were more like our former heroes, but hopefully Rashford doesn’t end up being United’s Henry.
