Manchester United striker Marcus Rashford has revealed that the Red Devils are doing everything in their power to right the wrongs of last season.
United endured a dismal 2018/19 campaign. They finished a miserable sixth in the Premier League, crashed out of the FA Cup at the quarterfinal stage and exited the Champions League at the hands of Barcelona.
Jose Mourinho was also sacked midway through the season to be replaced by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. The Norwegian got United’s campaign back on track initially but the players faded away as the season progressed.
Marcus Rashford keen to make amends for last season
Rashford was one of United’s lone bright sparks last season. However, he believes the entire team needs to share the blame for what transpired last campaign. He also admitted that they are working hard to get the club back on track ahead of the new season.
“Everyone is positive, we know last season wasn’t good enough but we’ve put it behind us and are working harder than ever to put things right this time.”
“As individuals and as a team we all have to take responsibility – if we do that, we’ve got a good chance to achieve our aims.”
“The training sessions have been quite tough but it’s what we needed and we’re in much better condition to perform this season.
“It helps the boss has had the time to work with us on the pitch and we’ve learnt new things.”
Rashford was rewarded for his stellar displays last season with a new contract. The Englishman will remain with the club for four more years. He admitted that getting United back to the heights they had hit under Sir Alex Ferguson is one of his goals.
“It’s always been a goal of mine to get the club back to where they should be and what we all know is Manchester United, so the decision wasn’t a hard one to make.”
United certainly look rejuvenated ahead of the new campaign. They’ve made a couple of smart acquisitions, bringing in Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Daniel James.
They are also in the market for a couple more players and could look a whole different unit to last season by the time the summer window shuts.
