Anthony Elanga outshines Marcus Rashford in pre-season fitness test

During a pre-season fitness test, Anthony Elanga of Manchester United showcased his extraordinary abilities, leaving observers in awe and prompting comparisons to his fellow academy graduate, Marcus Rashford.

The return of several international players to the Red Devils’ training camp at Carrington marked an exciting moment for fans.

Among the returning stars on Saturday morning were Luke Shaw, Bruno Fernandes, and Marcus Rashford.

However, it was Elanga who stole the spotlight with his impressive performance in the gym, demonstrating that he possesses a level of athleticism that goes beyond the norm.

Manchester United’s pre-season so far

Just over a week ago, the Manchester United squad members who did not participate in international duty returned for pre-season training.

They recently played their first pre-season friendly in Oslo, Norway, where they triumphed over Leeds United with a score of 2-0 under the management of Erik ten Hag.

To provide playing time for all the players, the United manager deployed two different lineups, with each half featuring a distinct XI.

It was the youthful team that took the field in the second half that managed to secure both goals during the match.

Noam Emeran and Joe Hugill, both academy players, were the sole goal scorers in the game after senior players like Raphael Varane, Mason Mount, and Jadon Sancho were substituted at half-time.

Manchester United recently shared a new video on their YouTube channel as part of their ‘Inside Training’ series.

The video showcased the returning squad members engaging in friendly yet competitive gym exercises, providing fans with an inside look at the team’s training sessions.

Elanga vs Rashford

Anthony Elanga and Marcus Rashford were videoed in a standing long jump competition as Tyrell Malacia looked on.

Plenty of Manchester United fans were particularly impressed with the Swede’s physical capabilities.

“Yh Rashford got COOKED in the Super Athlete Off. Elanga isn’t normal,” a Manchester United fan tweeted.

One YouTube user commented under the YouTube video: “Clip this, Elanga is going to be a star. Even if he leaves United. His work ethic as a young man is just levels. He has talent and the fan base should be ashamed of themselves the way they speak about him. I hope he goes out and shines without the undue pressure and criticism.”
