Marcus Rashford’s recent admission showcases the extent of his remarkable comeback following a challenging season for Manchester United. On Wednesday night, Rashford scored his 28th goal of the season, securing a 1-0 victory against Premier League rivals Brentford at Old Trafford.
The England striker’s first-half goal against Brentford equaled the record for most goals scored by a United player in a season since Sir Alex Ferguson retired a decade ago. Rashford’s impressive performance helped United regain their position in the top four, and he admits that he is “enjoying himself.”
This season, Rashford has scored ten winning goals for United in the Premier League, the most since Wayne Rooney 13 years ago. Despite a disappointing 2-0 defeat against Newcastle at St James’ Park, the victory against Brentford has put United back on track.
Rashford is focused on continuing to win matches for the club and aims to finish the season with as many points as possible. He recognizes that the two teams at the top of the league are running away with it but believes it is essential for United’s growth and development to keep winning games.
Last season, Rashford struggled to score, with just five goals in all competitions. However, he has made a sensational comeback this season, impressing United manager Erik ten Hag with his performances. Rashford’s recent form has also led to his return to the England squad after being dropped by Gareth Southgate.
As United head into the semi-finals of the FA Cup and the quarter-finals of the Europa League, they will rely on Rashford to be at his best to help secure more silverware. Rashford’s impressive form has demonstrated the extent of his revival, leaving Brentford boss Thomas Frank disappointed after their recent match against United.
