Rashford backs Man Utd to 'turn things around' and reveals his Champions League ambition

Marcus Rashford has backed Manchester United to ‘turn things around’ and has outlined his ambitions to win major silverware with both club and country.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side are currently in the midst of a transitional phase and sit fifth in the Premier League at present, the club facing a battle to secure a top-four finish and Champions League qualification.

It is now approaching seven seasons since the Red Devils were last crowned as champions of England, and 12 years since the club ruled in Europe, though Rashford is amongst a host of talented players at the club seeking to return the Old Trafford side to former glories.

The academy graduate was enjoying the best season of his career before suffering a back injury in January, and feels his side have shown their potential to compete for major honours in the near future.

Speaking on his ambitions, Rashford has revealed his desire to win the games’ biggest prizes, and hopes both Manchester United and England can be major challengers for trophies in the coming seasons.

“To win the World Cup, and for Man United to win the Champions League,” Rashford told FourFourTwo.

“We need to start showing signs that we can be the United of old. Football has changed a lot, so it’s not going to be exactly the same, but we know the club can do it. It’s been difficult, but it’s a period of transition.

“As long as we stay focused, I don’t see why we can’t turn things around and really improve.”
