Marcus Rashford says he ‘gives his life’ for Manchester United and is determined to help the club back to the top.
The 21-year-old ended speculation he could leave his boyhood club by signing a new long-term deal earlier this summer, and the forward says he is optimistic regarding the club’s future.
The England international will enter the new season as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s first-choice striker, with the academy graduate excited about the club’s prospects ahead of the new campaign.
“I think it’s a very exciting moment,” Rashford told United Review.
“For me it was just about getting the new contract out of the way and solidifying that I’m here for the club. It’s about getting the club back to where it belongs, what everybody knows Manchester United are.
“I give my life for the club and that’s the most important thing. For me, when you’re in a squad with a lot of young players who share the same ambition and have the same drive, I can only see us succeeding.
“It might take us some time, but if we all stick to the game plan, work collectively as a team, and we’ve got a good manager who knows the club and who shares the same ambition, who knows what we can achieve?
“It’s not just me. There’s a group of young players together and we can start to become what we decide to become.
”That’s an important thing to me: that we can start to help the younger ones coming through. It’s all part and parcel of growing up in a United shirt. It’s just the next step.”
United kick off their Premier League season at home to rivals Chelsea tomorrow.
