Rashford: I couldn’t have asked for better

 

Manchester United striker Marcus Rashford says he could not have wished for a better start to his career, but admits it’s going to be difficult to replicate.

Rashford burst onto the seen just over the year ago, scoring twice on debut against Midtjylland in the Europa League. He has gone on to score 15 times for the Red Devils as well as earn a call-up to England’s European Championship squad.

“It’s going to be hard to repeat it over the next 12 months but that’s the aim and that’s going to be the aim for the rest of my career,” he told Sky Sports.

“Having the success so early is good because it drives you to want it more. If you have to wait three or four years to get your hands on silverware I think it is more difficult to find the drive and determination. To get it at such a young age is massive for me and my future.

“The first goal is the very best feeling I’ve had. It’s weird, you always feel the same inside when you score no matter the occasion but I don’t usually celebrate like that, running around crazy.

“You just explode when the first one goes in. If you ask most people, the first one is special for them, no matter if it’s a tap-in or a screamer.”
