Despite all the praise from his teammates, Manchester United midfielder Marcus Rashford has admitted that he is not fully focused on the task at hand. He said in an interview with the Daily Mail that he is still asking himself questions about his intensity and dedication to training before he meets up with new manager Gareth Southgate. In the interview, he also praised his team-mates’ work ethic, and claimed that they are ready to face the challenge ahead.
Manchester United’s preparation time has been extremely short
Despite his impressive return to the national side after a long-term injury, Marcus Rashford has been questioned about his commitment to training under new manager Gareth Southgate. Rashford was part of the England squad that won a 6-2 rout of Iran in Khalifa International Stadium on Sunday. But he missed a penalty in a shoot-out.
Rashford’s first goal for England came in a World Cup game and he has scored more than a dozen goals for club and country. However, he is not the only one to have shown the elusive winning touch.
Rashford has scored more than a dozen goals in the Premier League this season, with a personal best of 14 in all competitions. He has also been named the top scorer for England in Group B.
He has also shown the ability to work with his teammates to establish a winning attitude.
Gareth Southgate’s approach to training under him
Having been in the game since he was 16 years old, Gareth Southgate has a wealth of experience. He has a great understanding of players’ needs and how to best communicate with them. He has also played a vital role in enacting a quiet revolution in the England under-21s.
One of the reasons why the England under-21s had so much success under Southgate was because he adapted his leadership style to suit the needs of each player. He worked with the team to build a positive, supportive atmosphere. He has created a culture where everyone is treated equally and has no egos.
Jadon Sancho will shine in a Manchester United shirt
Despite a disappointing start to life at Manchester United, Jadon Sancho could soon be a bright future at Old Trafford. The 21-year-old has impressed in pre-season and he could soon get his chance.
Sancho, who arrived at Old Trafford last season, has yet to register a goal in 15 appearances for the Red Devils. However, he is likely to be in the first group of players back on June 27.
The Manchester United manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, is keen to see Jadon Sancho develop into a top player. He believes the youngster is capable of bringing success to United. However, it will take time for him to get into full shape and settle into the team.
His mood at the European Championship
Earlier this week, England’s most gifted player Marcus Rashford raised some questions about the intensity and dedication of training before the team meet Croatia in the semi-finals of the Euros. The 24-year-old is the youngest player to score a goal in an international tournament and the tournament’s youngest. But he also has experience of playing at two European Championships.
The World Cup is a short preparation period for teams, so the mood among players was much more positive than it was in the lead-up to last year’s tournament. Some staff felt that playing six Euros matches on home soil was a real benefit.
