Manchester United beat Astana in their opening Europa League clash and following the game, United forward Marcus Rashford has doubted whether United would have beaten the Kazakhstani outfit under former boss Jose Mourinho.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side scored only one goal to win the Europa League game, and the only goal scored 21-year-old Mason Greenwood.
Rashford, himself, missed several chances to score.
Following the game, he told Manchester Evening News: “They were a tough team to break down but I think it shows, if I look back to two years ago I don’t think the team had the togetherness to come through a game like that. Because everyone expects it to be an easy game, but the opposition have come to win, so it’s always a tough game.”
