Marcus Rashford has named his dream Manchester United six-a-side team, but left himself out of it.

Rashford, who rose through the Man United academy ranks before making it to the senior team, has become one of the key players for the Red Devils.

But, the 23-year-old does not yet see himself in his dream team, which is dominated by players he grew up watching.

Between the sticks, Rashford chose his teammate David De Gea, who he picked over club great Edwin Van Der Sar. Dea Gea is also the only player from the current Man United squad to make it to Rashford's dream team.

Rashford picked Rio Ferdinand in defense, and in front of the former England international was Paul Scholes, flanked by Cristiano Ronaldo and Ryan Giggs on either side, while Wayne Rooney was named up front.

"Right, I'm going to go with most players from the teams that I watched when I was growing up," he said during his Instagram Q and A session [via Mirror].

"I'd probably have [David] De Gea, but it was a close one between him and [Edwin] Van der Sar.

"When I was a kid Van der Sar was one of the best keepers and obviously playing with David has been great, so I'd have to put David in there.

"At the back I'd have Rio Ferdinand.

"I'm all-out attack there. I'd have [Paul] Scholesy in front of Rio, [Ryan] Giggs on the right, Ronaldo on the left and Rooney up front.

"I'm not putting myself in. Not yet.

"Him [Rooney] and Ronaldo were my two favourite players growing up, so to get an opportunity to play with him was an unbelievable experience."

Meanwhile, Rashford, who has been playing for Man United senior team since the 2015-16 season, has already featured in more than 250 games for the Premier League giants, and, when considering he is just 23, he is on his way to superstardom and club legend status.
