Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford is impressed with his ever-improving form and consistency following a ‘tough period’ for both club and country.
The red-hot English star has been impressive in his recent appearances for the national team, scoring in three consecutive England games, and he told media consistency is crucial for a player in his position.
“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.”
The 22-year-old has bagged nine goals and one assist in ten appearances for both club and country. That fine run includes a strike in a 1-1 draw with Liverpool, a brace in a 2-1 Carabao Cup win over Chelsea, as well as a goal and an assist in a 3-1 league win over Norwich City.
He also scored in each of England’s recent UEFA Euro 2020 qualifiers against Montenegro and came in as a substitute to score their third during a 4-0 demolition of Kosovo on Sunday.
Rashford’s admission is news that every Man United fan would want to hear over and over again as the club is still struggling to claim their rightful place in the Premier League table.
Currently, the Solskjaer-led side is placed seventh with only 17 points after playing 12 matches. Rashford’s promising form will be necessary when the Red Devils travel to Bramall Lane on Sunday to take on Sheffield United in their Premier League campaign.
