EPL: Kobbie Mainoo names three ex-Man Utd players he loves watching

 Manchester United midfielder Kobbie Mainoo has said he loved watching the club’s former players Wayne Rooney, Paul Scholes and Eric Cantona play while growing up as a child.

Mainoo spoke to the media ahead of England’s international friendly match against Brazil on Saturday night.

The 18-year-old, who said he appreciates the trio, also said he has always dreamed of playing for the England national team.

“I loved watching [Wayne] Rooney. Paul Scholes as well and King Eric [Cantona]. It was a bit before my time, but I still appreciate it,” Mainoo said.

“Of course, as a kid you always dream of playing for England.

“But at the time I was just taking it game by game.”

Mainoo will hope to get his first England cap against Brazil.
