& # 39; When he plays on the left, you can see that he is blooming and that he is enjoying that position. Coming from the left, getting shots or playing 1-2 with the center striker, I think he did well in that position. & # 39;

I am a fan and change the emotional side of it. Suppose we lose a game, it affects me more than it should because I am a fan.
& # 39; It hurts every day to see where we are now, [compared] to where we have been in the past. I use that pain as a motivation. It makes me more determined to put the club back where they belong.
& # 39; There is nothing more I want than to see the club win the Premier League again, win the Champions League again. Everyone here earns a lot, much more than what we give them now, not just the fans, the club itself. They don't deserve to be where they are now.

Despite poor campaign timeout and increasing competition in the competition, Rashford insisted on patience in correcting the club's course, admitting that success would take several years to return.
& # 39; That's what drives me bye. If I didn't believe it, I wouldn't wake up every morning and give 100 percent to try to get the club back where they belong. I believe in the players, the staff and the manager.
& # 39; The players now have confidence in the manager. If we are going to do it, this is the moment. We are looking forward to the new season. A season will not change this. It can take two or three seasons, but I feel that we are ready to take the first step and really show people that we are Manchester United. & # 39;
