Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford believes that the team is a lot fitter than last season. Jurgen Klopp admitted that the style of play of ten Hag paid instant dividends as his Liverpool side was convincingly beaten in Bangkok. Rashford endured a horrendous season but is looking to turn over a new leaf under the new manager this season.
“For me, it is a fresh start, something I am looking forward to. The first two and a half weeks of training have been good. We have improved a lot and we’re a lot fitter than last season,” Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford said.”We have a lot of room for improvement. I’m in a good place right now. I am looking forward to getting more games under my belt and getting ready for the season. It is a lot easier to make mistakes in a team that is winning. Individually it is the same thing. It is a lot easier to come back and improve when you make mistakes in a winning team. When you are losing it is difficult.”
“It has not been natural to have a long break, just under four weeks, a long break physically and mentally. It is an opportunity to refresh. I am ready to go again,” he added. “This is the first year I have been with the team since the beginning [of pre-season]. I feel a lot better than usual when I go away with the national team and come back part-way through the preseason. It is important to get a fresh start. I feel fresh and ready.”
