Marcus Rashford: Manchester United Star promises to help the club win titles in his first interview after contract renewal
Marcus Rashford’s individual brilliance was one of the very few bright spots in Manchester United’s campaign last season. The talented youngster scored 13 goals in all competitions last season to equal his best aggregate since his United debut four years back.
The England International overtook Romelu Lukaku in the pecking order and is now Manager Solskjaer’s first choice striker in the team. However, despite his performances, the red side of Manchester came crashing to a 6th place finish and will now compete in Europa league this season.
Solskjaer has taken it upon himself to rebuild the squad in his vision. He has made two signings so far and is keen to add at least 3 more. Rashford is clearly a part of the vision as he was recently handed a new contract that would cost the club around £250,000-a-week.

Speaking to The Times, Marcus Rashford said that he was a lifelong fan of the club. He admitted that the club hasn’t performed as well as it should be and said that the responsibility to change that lied with the players. However, he remained realistic and announced that the climb back up could probably take more than a season.
“Manchester United are one big family. Some clubs don’t have that – it’s just a football club. That’s why Manchester United are more than a football club to me. Me being a fan changes the emotional side of it. Say we lose a game; it affects me more than it should because I’m a fan. It makes me more determined to put the club back where they belong. There’s nothing I want more than to see the club winning the Premier League again, winning the Champions League again.”

“Everybody here deserves much, much more than what we’re giving them right now, not only the fans, the club itself. They don’t deserve to be where they are now. As players, we’re the ones who have the opportunity to try and forget about the past five, six years and put the club back on track. One season is not going to change it. It can take two or three seasons but I feel we’re ready to take the first step, and really start showing people that we are Manchester United.”
