Cristiano Ronaldo sends Man United ace Marcus Rashford motivational gift

As he continues to develop as a footballer, there can be little doubt that Marcus Rashford is in good hands.

Already a fixture at Manchester United, the 20-year-old striker can also boast being taken under the wing of one of the best players in the world.

Indeed, Rashford was beaming as he thanked Cristiano Ronaldo for the special gift he received in the mail -- a signed Real Madrid shirt complete with motivational message.

"Dear Marcus, keep up the good work," the hand-written scribble reads.

This isn't the first time that Ronaldo has sent a personal gift to Rashford, with the Portuguese superstar posting a pair of exclusive red Nike trainers to the United prodigy earlier this year.

Having a world famous, five-time Ballon d'Or winner to call on as a friend certainly seems to have some advantageous benefits.

Chris covers the funny side of the game for ESPN FC in the Toe Poke blog.
