Marcus Rashford has admitted he needed time off ahead of the new season to refocus after a difficult few years for the Manchester United and England forward. Speaking to Manchester United’s club channel, he said: “I feel like I probably needed that time to switch off a little bit and me having that time enabled me to refocus a lot earlier than I expected.”
“We have got that feeling of excitement and that buzz around the training ground again and so it is definitely positive going into pre-season,” he said.
“It is just about, one, getting the principles right of how Erik wants us to play and the details, and, two, enjoying it.
“In the first week of training we have done both and everyone is looking forward to going on the tour and putting what we have done in training into the first games.
“It is a fresh start for everyone and for me personally I have had quite a long break, a nice camp before coming back into training, and how we are starting off on the right foot.
“Like I said, everyone is looking forward to pre-season now and going out to try to put into the games what we have learned in training so far, and what we will continue to learn, not only in the pre-season but throughout the season as well.”
