Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford has urged his teammates to help regain the club’s identity next season.
United struggled in the earlier part of this past season under Jose Mourinho. The players looked lacklustre on the field and there was no sense of urgency.
Dressing room issues mar United’s campaign
Moreover, constant rows between the manager and star players added to the unrest in the dressing room.
While things took a turn for the better following the arrival of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, the players descended into their unwanted habits towards the end of the season.
United failed to win any of their last six matches and ended the Premier League season in sixth place.
Marcus Rashford issues strong statement
This means they will miss out on the Champions League next season, which Rashford feels is simply unacceptable for a team of United’s stature.
The England striker took to Instagram to make a promise to his fans. Rashford assured them that next season will be a lot better and that the players need to help United find their identity again.
“Next season we need to get back to how Manchester United play, for me that’s most important. We need to find that willingness and respond the right way.”
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is set to make some major changes to the squad after a disappointing end to the campaign.
What’s next for Manchester United?
The Norwegian, at one point, claimed that he would succeed at the club but there would be a number of players not part of the project.
The likes of Paul Pogba, Alexis Sanchez and co are all set to be offloaded. This would allow them to pursue their top targets.
The Red Devils have been linked with a number of top players, including Paulo Dybala and Toby Alderweireld.
