Manchester United striker Marcus Rashford spoke about his unusual celebration of a new goal.
Having scored for his club, the England star has recently been pointing his finger at his temple.
And the academy graduate explained his action, referring to the new structures at United and the improvement of the team’s form under the leadership of new boss Erik ten Hag.
“There is a completely different energy at the club and at the training base,” Rashford said. (Quotes through the Sun)
“It gives me more freedom and now I just feel really motivated. This is an area I’ve struggled in.
“At times I struggled with more mental things. It wasn’t really my own performance, but other things off the field. This is the biggest difference from last season.
“Too often last season I didn’t have the right free space for games. I wasn’t surprised by some of the things that were happening.”
With new ideas on and off the pitch, Ten Hag has succeeded, bringing optimism back to Old Trafford after a diabolical campaign last time.
Rashford’s form during that terrible period was perhaps the worst in his professional career, but now the England star is playing the best football of his life.
Ten Hag’s methods clearly work for the player, and his comments speak for it.
Now that Rashford is shooting at full speed between the ears and on the grass, there is a new sense of faith among the fans.
Marcus Rashford has scored 17 goals and provided 4 assists in all competitions for Manchester United this season, and also scored three goals at the FIFA World Cup.
