When Marcus Rashford invited his followers to send him questions for a quick Twitter Q&A session, we should have known we were in for a treat.

Among all the bizarre questions (do you like bread?), Rashford offered up an insight into life as a young Manchester United star and how he blossomed into one of Europe's brightest young stars.

There were so, so many questions on the thread that Rashford didn't get time to answer anywhere close to all of them, but there were some pretty juicy responses hidden in among all the weirdness, so let's take a look at some of the best.

Obviously, as a United fan, a lot of Rashford's love of football came from Wayne Rooney. He named the former striker as one of his favourite players ever, one of his childhood idols (alongside his mum) and admits he was the best player he ever played alongside.

He was lucky enough to play alongside Rooney, but Rashford admitted to being desperate to play with Paul Scholes, who he named as one of the greatest midfielders of all time alongside Barcelona legend Andres Iniesta.

One question which sparked a little bit of controversy among the I Hate Everybody crowd on Twitter was Rashford's admission that he would like to play alongside Manchester City's Kevin De Bruyne, as if Rashford is supposed to pretend he's not one of the all-time great playmakers because he wears a different coloured shirt.

Admitting to following close friend Tammy Abraham at Chelsea also caused a bit of a pointless stir, but one bit of drama Rashford managed to avoid was questions about linking up with Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho.

When asked whether he would like to play alongside the long-time United target, Rashford simply responded: "I do for England." Nice.

There was also a shout-out to Zlatan Ibrahimovic and the knuckle-ball technique of Nani's free-kicks, but most importantly, his love of putting one sugar in his tea. Huge news.
