Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford says he is now full of confidence once again after enduring a difficult start to the season.
The 22-year-old attributes his purple patch down to playing on a consistent basis and working his way back into some sort of touch in front of goal:
“It has been a tough period and now I’m getting consistent games and playing week in, week out. As a forward that has huge importance.”
“If you are not in the team and you’re in and out, you don’t quite have that confidence in front of goal. But when you’re having a run in the team it’s important to come up with the goods and once you start doing that it becomes second nature.”
Rashford has started nearly all of United’s games this season, but he has had a couple of minor injuries that have hindered his performances.
Despite the issues and poor form which saw him score just one goal in a two month period between August and October, he has come out the other side with some superb displays.
His goal for England against Bulgaria last month has kicked started his season, and he has managed nine goals in his last ten games for club and country.
United supporters will be hoping he continues in a similar vein when they face Sheffield United on Sunday.
