Marcus Rashford claims he is in a “good place” and prepared for a new chapter under Erik ten Hag, the next Manchester United manager.
The Manchester United attacker, like many of his colleagues, had a bad season last year, but Erik ten Hag has given him a new lease on life as he gears up for his debut campaign at Old Trafford.
Last season, Rashford had his worst season at United, scoring only five goals as his form and confidence failed him. He also lost his position on the England team as a result. Rashford’s slide was the most pronounced, and for the first time, his future at Old Trafford was in doubt. The bulk of United’s team endured a season to forget.
However, the 24-year-old says he feels revitalized and prepared for a fresh start under ten Hag after spending a big portion of the summer improving his fitness and body at Nike HQ in the US.
Prior to United’s second preseason match, against Melbourne Victory on Friday, Rashford stated, “For me it’s a fresh start, something I’m looking forward to.”
“The training has gone smoothly for the first 2.5 weeks. We’ve made a lot of progress, and we’re more fitter than we were last year ” There is much opportunity for development. Right now, I’m in a terrific position. The prospect of playing more games and preparing for the season excites me.

It hasn’t been natural to take such a lengthy break—just under four weeks—both physically and psychologically, according to Rashford. “It is a chance to recharge. I’m all set to go once more ” I joined the team at the start of the preseason this year for the first time. When I travel with the national team and return halfway through preseason, I feel much better than usual. Get a new start; it’s essential. I am alert and prepared.
