The Premier League has been graced with many exceptional talents in recent years, and Manchester United’s Marcus Rashford is surely one of them. He has managed to emerge as a world-class forward and has been making waves in the footballing world. Recently, Rashford opened up about his experiences last season and his aspirations for the future in a revealing interview.
Rashford admitted that he considered leaving Manchester United last summer, as the team failed to mount any real challenge for silverware and ended up finishing sixth in the Premier League. However, things changed for the better when manager Erik ten Hag took over and Rashford scored a career-high 30 goals in all competitions, playing a key role in United’s Carabao Cup win and Champions League qualification in the process. Fueled by a new wave of confidence, Rashford recently signed a five-year contract that keeps him at the club until 2028.
When asked what had changed for him last season, Rashford said he felt more freedom and stability on the pitch than ever before, a feeling that contributed to him enjoying his football once again, which in turn led to improved performances on the field. The Premier League star also expressed a belief that the entire team must keep improving if Manchester United are to challenge for trophies on a regular basis.
Rashford also spoke about how it felt to be playing for his boyhood club and admitted that the thrill of it never gets old. He also revealed that he was courted by Paris Saint-Germain last summer but the timing was never right for either side. Furthermore, ten Hag’s influence was praised by Rashford, who said the manager was always pushing him to keep improving in both physical and mental aspects of the game.
Finally, when asked about Manchester City’s treble win last season, Rashford acknowledged their quality and applauded them for their feat, but stressed the importance of consistency in order to challenge for the Premier League title. The England international is certainly aiming to take United to the next level by 2023 and with the way things are progressing, that goal could definitely become a reality
