Elanga said:

“It’s really good to have Ronaldo as a mentor because I go to training quite early and see him there.”

“If we have had a game the day before, we speak about the game or training.

“He’s a really good person to have around the building,

not just because of what he does on the pitch, but what he does off the pitch as well.

If we [young players] need any help we can speak to him. So he’s a really good person to be around.”


Anthony Elanga joined United from Malmo at the age of 12, and has made 28 first-team appearances for the Red Devils this season.

Despite United’s inconsistency and failure to compete for silverware, Elanga believes he’s improved simply by working with more experienced players.

He continued:

“Everything starts on the training pitch.”

“Looking at what the oldest players do and taking notes from them.

Training with them day-in, day-out, helps me a lot.

“Not just from a technical side of the game, but the tactical side of the game, what they do when out of possession.

When I’m in the game, I like to talk to the older lads to get advice.”
